2008 Toy­ota Prius High-mileage daily driver used for busi­ness and plea­sure mo­tor­ing. Bought at 117,000, but still re­li­able and ef­fi­cient at 191,000. No rea­son to change it, so I'm not go­ing to.

2003 Land-rover Free­lander TD4 HSE Auto Bought in 2016 and now our sec­ond family car, used mainly by my part­ner but also for family drives/hol­i­days. Un­der­went a re­cent ex­pen­sive ser­vice, but still needs new glow plugs be­fore next win­ter.

1992 Rover 827 Coupé Early ex­am­ple and a gen­uine 44,000-miler. A very tidy car that was dis­played at the 2017 NEC Clas­sic Car Show. Some 827-only parts for the Honda en­gine are get­ting scarce – no­tably a dis­trib­u­tor cap sourced from Amer­ica (see main text).
