Slightly jealous

Post by qprdude » 30 Sep 2013, 20:30

Daughter's just bought this, and I'm a little bit green,. Does anyone else get jealous over their kids cars? =P~

Nope, eldest has a 1.4 Pug 207 which is absolute rubbish and youngest has a Nissan Pixo which is a fantastic little car but not one for me.

Now if either daughter came home with a showroom condition V6 XM I'd be very jealous :lol:

My daughters have, respectively a C3, an Escort Cabriolet + an Alfa GT Cloverleaf and the youngest a Clio that she hates.
Wouldn't want any of them - the Alfa is interesting but very high maintenance.

The middle one is making noises about buying a Mercedes S-class. I have been trying to persuade her to buy a 2002 Cadillac instead* - that might make me a bit on the green side but otherwise - nah!

I did like the youngest's SAABs and her Rover 75

*There's one near where I work and I've followed it through town a few times, it rides in a very regal fashion and there's room for a football team inside (all while leather)

Saab and Rover 75. My last two cars. Both lovely cars, but the rover had the edge for class. Had the top of the range 2.0 diesel. Lovely car.

Daughter has the brand new Disco, and her husband has a VW Sharan 6 seater with electric sliding doors etc.
Son has a 5 series BMW and a 1967 2.1 turbo Audi Quattro Coupe for summer use.
Why can't I afford those kind of wheels?

On second thoughts. I have a Citroen. :-D

My first 806 was an r reg 1.9TD and I loved the turbo sound. It always felt faster and more powerful than it,s 90bhp. My current expert 2.0hdi sounds the same. You hear and feel the turbo working and it feels faster than it's 110 bhp should be. My daughters astra cdti 120 couldnt keep up with it and she was gutted :lol:
