I have a Suzuki Ignis Sport.. it is quite fun to drive.  Most of the time I ride my motorcycle though.  It is a Honda CG125 although I have a Yamaha XJ600S also which I'll be riding shortly.

I drive a battered VW Passat TDI estate, with 160k on it. 

It's a useful box on wheels, used for transporting family, mountain bikes, kayak's, tools, and shopping.

I've had fast car's but, nothing beat's riding a motorbike. Though admittedly my riding style is pretty anti-social. If I had the money, I'd have a garage full of bikes (and even a garage  :lol: )

When I pass my test (hopefully end of November), I want a '99 Vauxhall Corsa to begin with, I wanted a KA, but they're tiny, probably not suitable for my big legs  ^_^

Pinky and his brain

Well my list looks like this:

 

'79 Ford Escord MK2

'86 Opel Kadett

'75 Volvo 242

'85 Ford Sierra

'91 VW Golf

'05 Peugeot 206

'07 VW Touran

'10 VW Golf

 

I also had 4 company owned cars, but they don't really count as they didn't belong to me.

 

So far I have driven around 1,2 million kilometers since I got my licence. And only one accident, which wasn't my fault. ( not counting small dents and scratches, which I have caused. hmmm.)

Between me and my partner we have had 10 cars since we have been together! (3years) hehe we both love cars! But they have to be vags! (Well German atleast) everyone of my cars has been a VDub or an Audi :) josh has had 2 fords and 1 Clio which he hated and kept for like a month! Haha

My MK1 VW Golf was the best! Followed by the MK2 VW Golf I had before it!!

When I pass my test (hopefully end of November), I want a '99 Vauxhall Corsa to begin with, I wanted a KA, but they're tiny, probably not suitable for my big legs ^_^

You can't have a KA it's a death trap mr!!!!

Classic or modern, I'm currently running a N reg 1.8 MGF in British Racing Green, but started with a 1500 Midget in Inca Yellow. If I had a choice I'd have both, the F is reliable but the Midget was more fun, rear wheel drive, 180 degree spins in snow going up a 1 in 10 hill. Secondhand F's are fairly cheap, mine cost around £500 last January and runs perfectly. I did have a brand new one just after Rover had started building them, wonderful for posing, blondes, brunettes, no problem.... sadly my wife is a red head!
