Oh where are my manners...

Post by CitroënDave » 14 May 2012, 21:55

Hi, I'm Dave :)

I drive a rattly, squeaky blue van which is disappearing for the summer

Every car I've insured under my own name, I've had to put together

I have an unhealthy obsession with collecting cars, cut down this year to just 12 under my name =D>

In my spare time I only work on my current collection, somehow...

I don't really do anything else, except college schtuff

I have a sweet tooth and as a result have lost a tooth, have 12 fillings and 2 root canals. Costly...

I hate ALL modern music...

I learned to drive at 12 and got my first car at 15

I've got 2 Fiat Bravos, an Opel Vectra, a VW Polo, 2 Ford Fiestas, a BMW 525i (E34), a Fiat Punto Sporting, 2 Fiat Tempras, an Alfa Romeo 166 - my project this summer.
And I just picked up a Peugeot 406 HDI. BTW, I've got pics if anyone thinks I'm telling porkies!

My Dad is just as bad - he has stuff that hasn't moved since I was a young'un!

PIC HEAVY!!!

Thanks for reading guys!

Hope to visit this site often and get to know a few of ye

Thanks! I bought it as a non-runner, head gasket went. I repaired it myself and just left it sitting in the garden. Now it just needs little jobs; needs some wishbones, an engine mount and a cracked windscreen. I'm going to leave it sitting in the garage now until I get some time to work on it.

I'll get a few pics of her for you tomorrow or Wednesday :D

Those lovely Alfa seats from a 156

Expect to see some bits of a 166 in there someday (not my one obviously!)

Oh and by the way, I'm not forgetting pics of the 166!
