Ok, so I like cars. Yup, I do, so I thought I'd start a thread for everyone to show off their brums!

Here are ours.

First off my little Toyota Aygo xcite special edition, only 2 weeks old. 1 litre pocket rocket! I love it. It's mainly used by me for nipping around and to and from work.

And here is Duncan's car, which is a 1.5 ltr Renault Captur. We've had in 12 months now from new last year and it's the work horse of the family and is used for Duncan's work as he does heavy mileage and for the long journeys of the family.

Why is it making you chuckle! I can't help liking car's lol, love my brums, and my top gear!
Just because I remember you making the fleece thread, and then I see "show us your cars" ha ha....I clearly am easily made to laugh! Please don't take any offence to me laughing, it is not a bad thing! x

I haven't don't worry, I was curious. Well we all like to see things that we enjoy. I just haven't converted my passion for fleece into something I can make for the cars lol.

I get 500 miles on a full tank and it costs me less than £60 to fill it up. 2 litre diesel turbo injection. It can shift for a big car. Plus it seats 7 so I can take a lot of the grandkids in one go instead of making 2 trips. ;)

Yeah Zafira's are fab family cars! Ours only had one problem in that sometimes it just wouldn't start, even the manufacturer couldn't find out what was wrong with it. We replaced allsorts on it. Eventually gave up and traded it in for a suzuki. That was rubbish, ended up replacing the whole engine on it. Can't commented on my Aygo so far as not had it quite two weeks yet, but the Captur is fab. 620 miles on a £35 full tank, it's a beast and so economical. Both have zero tax so that is handy too!

They are good cars. Apparently the new ones have a tiny 1ltr engine but with a turbo that goes like the clappers, very economical.

@Flutterby your new car is fab! I haven't seen any like that! Very unique and cool. @Chief Guinea Pig - yes I remember 'show us your fleece'! Ha ha I should have realised who this thread belonged to!

I'll have to take my car through the car wash before taking a pic!
