SIMON LISTER’S CAR CV

A taste of the 49 cars Simon’s owned so far

804 ECD – FORD ANGLIA

‘My first car, pictured on the sad day of departure to the breaker’s yard.’

ALC 989Y – LOTUS ELITE S2.2

‘One of five series 2.2s that I’ve owned, this one the Holy Grail – a one-of-seven Riviera.’

K850 FVX – FORD ESCORT RS COSWORTH

‘An entertaining family hatch – having three young children at the time, it taught me how to pack for a holiday.’

L894 XVV – PORSCHE 968 CLUB SPORT

‘Great car, the power could not overwhelm the excellent chassis – one of the cars I wish I could have hung on to.’

YXP 63 – GP BEACH BUGGY LDV

‘Owned twice now, first when I was 21. Spotted it for sale online having been expertly restored – now enjoyed by my children.’
