Cars I have had in my life

I started to drive at the age of 18 way back in 1963 and i have had quite a few cars, so i thought i would tell you about them and let you see the photos.

Ford Anglia

The fist one was a Ford Anglia which i had for about six months, it had faulty steering, rusting body work, the rain came in, the locks did not work, it ended up as a stock car.

Same car different name, boy could it fly, i ended up one night with seven or  eight men in the car after the pub we were going to the dance, we were stopped by the police, he said drive carefully and let us go, i was lucky.

Ford Popular

A good car with plenty of room but cold, i crashed it into a wall and it was a write off, i had it for about six months

Morris Minor

Very reliable car never let me down, in its day it was one of the most popular cars on the roads.

Austin Mini

This mini was the most popular car and they were very fast and sturdy for cornering and its making a great come back in a different shape.

Rover 90
The Rover only cost me £ 50 and i loved, it the inside was lovely  the craftmanship was great. Sadly i was blown to pieces in a bomb in a car park in Belfast, the bomb was in a car two from mine.

Ford Sierra Sapphire

Ford Sierra Sapphire another great car to drive i kept this for about four years.

Rover Estate

nearly new cars

Another Rover, reliable roomy, great for work. I had this one for about fours years as well,

Renault Scenic

This is my present day car and the most reliable car i have ever had it has caused me no problems so far and i already have it nearly seven years.

I have just spent £ 400.00 getting a new chain put in the engine so its good for another six or  seven years.

  1. A gripping life

    I love the look of the Rover 90 and the Morris Minor. Very cool cars.

  2. As usual, Lisa and I will have to arm wrestle over the same thing, as I,too, like the Morris Minor and the Rover 90 (before the blast).

  3. Really, a car was bombed only two cars away from yours? Scary.

  4. Some car envy going on here. Beautiful cars. I’m sorry about the car bomb. How horrible. Thanks for sharing these Harry.

  5. Haha awesome history, the first two look like gangster cars. 😀

    I’m only on my second car so far, first one was a 98 Fiesta and I’m currently on my 2003 MG TF.

    • The first two were big sellers in their day, the Fiesta was a good car. The MG is a great car, i knew a man who had a MGB and a MGA they were great cars as well.

  6. I really liked this-wish my dad could see them! beebeesworld

  7. Great photos – can’t wait for my partner to get in from work to show him 🙂

  9. Hi Harry!
    Just checking in! Can’t type to much but my dad had Ford Anglias! First one reg no JKW 860 and then Morris Minor reg no TVY 896. Then a newer Anglia reg no LUM 136L!!
    Why can’t I make room in my brain for more useful information!! Lol 🙂

  10. The Ford Anglia reminded me of harry Potter. I think that’s what they used in the movie, a Ford Anglia, I just don’t know what model and year.

    Cheers !
