You know, amazing how many people here who have owned dozens of cars actually REMEMBER them all.
I have had far over 100 cars, I'm 41 years old. Started at 19 with cars, having had dozoens of motorbikes before that, bikes like honda XL and XR 500, 600 Yamaha XT500 etc.
Here comes a small try
First: Ford Fiesta 1100
then a succesion of Opel Kadett D's.
Golf Mk 1 1600
Polo 1100 and one Derby (polo sedan)
'bout a dozen mini's, mostly modded.
Second car was a '80 Giulietta 1800 , black.
Second Alfa a '66 GT1300JR, rosso red of course.
2 Sud's
1 Sud Sprint 1500 ('82)
'bout half a dozen Alfetta's , first and second series, all models.
Roughly 15 Berlina's, perhaps more
About 30 or so Giulia's
I'd guess about 40 Bertone Coupe's, varying states, '66 to '75, from horrific to great
3 Alfa Sei
2 Squadra Bianca race cars
one Ferrari 308GTS
let me see, one BMW 1502, hearing aid beige.
And I'm quite sure I forgot some cars, but just now can't think of 'em...
