King Gaycharger, butt plug dealer, Sheldon Cooper and a BAC but generally a niceish fella if you dont mind a northerner

Rotherham, South Yorkshire

Here's my potted history for the last 13 years:

'84 Metro 998 City Rot box
** Big gap for Uni**
'90 Seirra Saphire 1.6 - ex taxi cut and shut. The first and last car I bought at auction!
'95 Escort 55 Van - Works van. a good tool.
'92 Audi 80 16v Sport - The best car I ever had! 140BHP a big bucket of torque and 980KGs *happy*
'99 Audi A4 1.8
'86 mini 998 - never saw the road
'90 Mini Studio 2
'90 Range Rover 3.9i Vogue SE - Shed!
'75 Clubman 998 - Still got it
53 Plate A4 TDi 130SE (bit of a theme developing...)
'78 Clubman - being restored and super charged *smiley*
'94 Mini SPi cooper - 34k on the clock. Dry stored for 4 years. Repaired and put back on the road, sold on for a healthy profit.
'88 MG Metro Turbo - Broken up for obvious reasons
'78 mini 998 - Rot box, broken for Parts
'88 MetroVan - What a shed, but it's back on the road!
'83 Metro 1275 L - Engine now in MetroVan (with a stage 3 head!)
'87 MG Metro - The rustiest car I have ever owned. It had been sat in somebody's garden for 10 years and was missing everything from the waste down! It's engine is now waiting to go in the '78 clubman.

New years resolution for 2009 - don't buy any more Cars. Yeah right!

Cars I've just had: list too long (must be at least 25 minis and 10 Jags on it), but non-mini highlights would be the Porsche 928 S4 Manual (VIN 14) and the Jag XJR-6, not to mention the Frogeye racer. Mini Highlights are my eternal Cooper 997 project an my pick up (currently being retored). I still have the XJ Coupe as well as the corsa. Just bought a Mini Traveller to replace the latter.
