OK here we go. I only own the green one now. The red XM I 'rescued' from an uncertain fate near Geneva... and sold it on later to a fellow enthusiast.
Image

I must say the XM has been a revelation to me. Thoroughly comfortable and even reliable!

And here's my current BX - I try to have at least one knocking about :)

Image

And some previous 'classics...

A TZD turbo BX called 'The Green Hornet' which we did the BXagon Challenge in in 2009

A car I wish I'd never sold... a Visa GTi

Going back a bit now, to the eighties:

Phwoooaaarrrggghh! (SP?) How sweet is that P6? Want one of my own to play with some day. :D

Sorry, yes, here's my daily car, unfortunately, these pics are the most recent ones I have and yes, that snow was brushed off there and the car driven out, up that bit hill and back in again without the aid of a passing tractor:
Image

The garage door shown in front of the car there isn't a real one, local missives wouldn't allow the appearance of the place to be changed when the kitchen was extended into the space [the garage] used to occupy, so the only workshop I now have is in my hut in the garden, and no, there's not enough width between hice to get a car down there. :x
Here's a piccie that gives an idea of other things I've had through my mitts at various, recent times, taken in the back yard at an otherwise rubbish flat I lived in for a while:
Image
Yep, that's a pair of (working) four-wheeled Reliants and a tricycle that we were cutting up that day, in order to rescue its engine for use in a car.
