And now I put a tank in my Tigga.

When I was a kid one of my jobs for pocket money was licking all the green shield stamps that came from the petrol station and sticking them in the green shield books.

Not a hatch but last year I was quite surprised to be given as a courtesy car an X reg "Ford Granada 2.8i Ghia Auto X". Brilliant.

The registration plate even had 3D "robot" lettering.

Austin 1300 'GT' (which qualifies it for this thread!) with spotlights and vinyl roof
mine was blue, which made it much faster.
I had the Riley 1300 twin carb version, the electric ariel made it go quicker

Hot Hatches, ive had two mark 2 Golf GTI 8V's, one Golf GTI mark 3 16V, one Golf GTI mark 4 turbo 20V, by far the best driving car of them all and the most fun and the most uncomplicated was the mark 2 8V GTI, loved them, totally unmodified as well, shame all the mark 2 GTI's you see these days are owned by holligans LOL. Still have my mark 4 GTI turbo, not as sporty as the other golfs but more comfortable and good on moterways, millage now around 160,000, it still runs very well so am going to see if I hit the 200K mark.

My Granada 2.8i was one of the nicest cars but unluckiest cars I ever owned, I sold it 6 months after I bought it because people just couldn't stop hitting it. The guy I sold it to torched it after he went on a drunken car smashing spree
