Default Car history

December 1998-January 1999: Mazda 121 1.3 1991 [H]
January 1999-February 2004: Mazda 626 1.8 1996 [N]
May 2002-????: SEAT Toledo 1.9 TD 1993 [K]
February 2004-April 2010: SEAT Toledo 1.6 2001 [51]
April 2010-present: Škoda Superb 2.0 TDi 2008 [58]

Erin's [wife's] list:

May 1998-January 1999: Mazda 121 1.3 1998 [R] (traded it in with my 121 for 626)

She shared with me the 626 until 2002, when I got the 1993 1.9TD Toledo for myself , and the 626 became hers

We traded the Toledo 1.9TD [can't remember when] for a:
Toyota Yaris 1.3 VVTi 2003 [53]
We then traded that in for a:
Audi A3 1.4 TFSi 2010 [10]

We also have a RX8 1.3 2005 [05], hence me being on this forum

Before her 121, Erin had a Peugeot 106 1.1 1994 [M] [this was when we met in 1998]
Her first car was a Nova I think

121s are dinky little Mazdas in Europe, my 323 is too small as it is, I will not go any smaller, just too unsafe IMO.

It was like that, in a navy blue colour
Bought in privately in 1998, sold it a month later in 1999 for the 626

Wife's 121 was in a red colour
We sold it, along with my 121, because we couldn't afford the costs of it, and we needed a bigger car because my oldest was on his way

All very small 4 cyl, including posts above. Way too small for me. No Zoom Zoom. Would have to supercharge or turbo them!
