Those that know me well, know that I always have a emotional association with my cars - not sure whether it’s a ‘bloke-thing’, or just a ‘me-thing’, but today is a sad day. Now that I’ve retired, I’m saying good-bye to my Vauxhall Insignia (19100 miles!) as it’s returned to the Leasing Company – it’s my last ‘company car’.
It’s been a great car in all senses – great spec, superbly comfortable, rock solid to drive and not bad mpg.
It’ll be the last business car and it follows in the tyre treads of various marques I’ve driven since the business started in 1989.
Toyota Supra – Fastest car I ever owned
(and scary in the wet!) 320bhp
Lexus GS300 Sport (my sophisticated phase)
Back to Ford – My first Mondeo
..and back to the sophisticated look – Jaguar S type
..and back to Ford for the new Mondeo
… and that’s rare!
