What did you drive before your Celica?

Question

I was just wondering what you drove before your Celica.

I had a Ford Ka before mine.

I remember when I was first driving it and being amazed that it had electric windows, mirrors and even a proper glove box :lol:

Holy thread revival batman!

BMW E36 323I Coupe I bought for £480 from a bloke in Fleetwood who wasn't even the owner.

But I'd just sat on a train for 4 hours, and then in the back of his mates car from the train station for 30 minutes and the tyres were brand new michelins so I took the chance.

Bar overheating a few times when I'd got back to Coventry (fan didnt work so got hot in traffic and coolant came out when I opened the cap, I then refilled it without bleeding, doh!) it never let me down. It was cream crackered though so I sold it to a drifter for £450.

A Peugeot 106 Graduate. Awful car but my parents bought me it for my 18th so couldn't complain. Crashed it the second day when I drove into back of someone and then 6months later I drove into a securicor van when he was taking money to our Post Office.

Soon bought a gen 5 GT4 instead.

The car i owned the previous 12 years before the trade-in deal for my Red:

Corolla3_zpsgjiicl3o.jpg

Toyota Corolla 1.9D

Ultra reliable, face-lift model year 2000.

Toyota sourced the diesel engine design from Peugeot, a common rail 1.9L producing no noticeable horse power but there was a small herd of 69 ponies that could lurch forward on occasion.

It was a very dependable bus that got me to work and back, and despite the poor brakes and 'get out and run faster acceleration' it faired far better with road holding abilities, very low running costs, an excellent build quality [uK model] and many endearing qualities that i felt very sorry when the time came to part :cry:

Me too, that was still a 1.8 at that point, I put in zlet in it, made just under 300bhp. Then it got rear ended on the motorway and written off :( I still look for a 888 cheap enough.
