What kind of cars did you guys and girls have before you got the DS4?

After a string of company cars (mainly Austins), of which the last one of which was actually a Citroen (BX19 TZS) handed back in 1993, I had a 405GTX, Celica GT4, then a 306. Then I went Japanese.... Lancer, Rover 623GSi (Honda Accord in disguise), Nissan 200SX Turbo, Honda HR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Qashqai, and finally a newer RAV4.

Looking at that list, noticed that all my vehicles were ether Japanese, UK, or French! Bit strange never had German or Italian, considering been driving over 30 years.

What's your list?

After reading your post I started thinking,
I have to go a long way back but here is my list going back to 1973

1973 Lotus Cortina pre loved, 3 year break
lived in Gibraltar and didn't need a car, 1976 Ford Corsair pre loved, 1978 Morris
Marina pre loved, 1980 VW Polo new kept for 10 years, 1989 Talbot Solara new, 1992
Orion 1.6 Ghia new1990 Escort Mexico pre loved, 1991 Escort
RS 2000 pre loved, only had it 3 days and it got written off rear ended at
speed, 1994 Citroen BX estate pre loved, 1995 Ford Mondeo pre loved, 1996 Citroen
BX pre loved, 1996 Vauxhall Corsa new, 1997 Peugeot 405 pre loved company, 1998
Peugeot 406 pre loved company, 2000 Peugeot 406 new company, 2003 Volvo S60 new
company, 2006 Mazda MX5 new, 2007 Mazda RX8 new, 2009 Jaguar X type new, 2010 Jaguar
XF new

2012 Citroen DS4 new


Probably missed a couple but that is most
of them, change quite often as I get bored quite quickly and in the past could
afford to change, still like this DS4 so will probably keep it the full 3 years
or more depending on financial situation.

What kind of cars did you guys and girls have before you got the DS4?

After a string of company cars (mainly Austins), of which the last one of which was actually a Citroen (BX19 TZS) handed back in 1993, I had a 405GTX, Celica GT4, then a 306. Then I went Japanese.... Lancer, Rover 623GSi (Honda Accord in disguise), Nissan 200SX Turbo, Honda HR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Qashqai, and finally a newer RAV4.

Looking at that list, noticed that all my vehicles were ether Japanese, UK, or French! Bit strange never had German or Italian, considering been driving over 30 years.

What's your list?

For me: Ford Fiesta 1.2, BMW E60 520d, BMW E60 535d, then the Citroen DS4 THP-200 :)

When I read this thread I often refer to the internet for photos of those cars you ownedthat were made inthe 60s or 70s or even 80s as I am not familiar with some but some do ring a bell. The reason being my age and above all the fact they were not available in Poland then. Some makes are gone now, like Austin or Talbot. And I wonder if you can name makes from behind the Iron Curtain, oncepopular and some of them also gone for good. So I include a photo of a car for you to make a guess. Clue: this car is not Polish.

Well it's rear-engined! After that I run out of ideas

Looks like a bit of a limousine style of car that only the Elite comrades would get to use.

Thought I would give my part 2 (prequel) ...
1969 Vauxhall Viva HB Estate (mums old car gave me after I passed my test in '82)
1966 Triumph Spitfire IV Mk 2 (wish I had kept that to renovate instead of selling for a song)
1973 Renault 12 (bought as an MOT failure and took to one of those 'special' garages that do MOT passes for an additional fee
)
1982 Vauxhall Nova (my newest car so far by then as a ex-demo) - Then I crashed it twice and no car for a month or so meant it was time to get a job with a company car to avoid that problem in the future

So then.... Austin Ambassador, Austin Montego, Austin Montego, Ford Orion, Austin Montego, Austin Montego, Austin Montego,
And finally a Citroen, the BX19 TZS.
