I think I have managed the impossible.......


Recommended Posts

Something I have aspired to but didn't actually I would achieve, I have managed to acquired a totally UK built 4 wheel vehicle fleet.

Triumph Spitfire > Coventry

MG TF > Longbridge

Vauxhall Vivaro > Luton

Range Rover Evoque > Liverpool (new purchase)

It goes without saying I am in the AA :laugh:

Not sure whether to congratulate or commiserate :tongue:

Will be interesting to see how the reliability league table goes!

Possible to add Honda, Toyota and Nissan to the list of UK build.

For now :blink:

Thinking about it, my first seven cars were British-built - Moggie Traveller, Ford Fiasco, Metro, Ford Crapi 1.6, Metro (once evidently not enough...), Montego, 'B GT.

They were all heavily used, but, excluding punctures, the first car to break down and leave me stranded (repeatedly) was the eighth, a Citroen BX.  Fabulous car.  When it worked.

Was this a deliberate quest, or partly coincidence?

My first few vehicles were all Italian scooters. The first one covered more miles being pushed than it ever did under its own power. 

Now I'm 100% Triumph transport - Spitfire, 1300FWD, and push-bike for daily use. I believe the bicycle was made by Raleigh, so my fleet all hail from the midlands - east or west.
