How many cars from new ?

My Dad has just bought his 1st ever brand new motor at the grand old age of 74. He has always bought 2nd hand cars in the past, but due to a recent windfall, decided on splashing out on a new Fiesta.

This got me thinking.....how many cars from new have you had in your life ? I've had 3 so far (an Astra TD Estate, a BMW 316i, and a Pegeot 307 HDi Estate - all company cars).

Hows about you ? How many, and what were / are they ?

    None, the same reason as MMA Guy

    It may change in the near future though as Ill be able to purchase one through my company, sell it and make a much smaller loss.

    Never owned 1 new one-the loss of money as soon as I get it home would break my heart

    I'll cross that bridge after i've burned it.

    Always bought second hand, maily due to financial constraints and wanting more for my money. Brand new fiesta or few years old BMW 3 series with all the gizmo's. I know where my money would be going.

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    Couldn't see my 74 year old pops running around in a beemer, to be fair ! I think the
    fuel alone would eat up his pension.....

    Sorry Smacky, wasn't referring to your old boy, a fiesta was just an example I plucked from the top of my head.

    0 for me to, always buy 2nd hand and modify them to my liking. Cheaper than buying a car built to your liking.
