Where did that go???? 8 cars (me) 4 cars (her), close on 1/2 million miles, 2 clutches, gawd knows how many oil / filter / air filter / fuel filter changes, 2 prangs (both in the first 6 months of driving).
The next 25 years? Who knows!!!
Sat my driving test on December 12th 1990 on my 15th birthday so a bit over 26 years driving for me, sorry Richard.
Two accidents in the first couple of years, both in my GS - one my fault, fishtailing into a ditch on a metal road in the country, the other not my fault, head on collision with someone who pulled out in front of me into the middle of a country road and stopped dead like a deer in headlights!
No accidents since then.
I've also owned 8 cars, roughly in this order (some of them overlapped each other and I can't remember exactly when I bought and disposed of some of them!)
1977 Citroen GSpecial 1129
1980 Subaru 1600
1984 Daihatsu Charrade Turbo
1977 Citroen CX 2400
1988 Honda Accord 2.0
1997 Citroen Xantia 2.0i
1998 Citroen Xantia V6
1997 Citroen Xantia V6
5 of the 8 are Citroen's so I think that puts me in good standing. (For the insane asylum
8 Petrols, no Diesels. One Turbo. 5 manuals and 3 automatics!
Clutches - 0 (!) Radiators 1. Timing belts changed 2, timing belts snapped 0. Cars with timing chains instead of belts 2. Cars eaten by the rust monster 4.
Miles ? I haven't a clue, but unlikely to be anywhere near as high as yours!
