(Picture is not the actual car)
PROMOTION at work in February 1990 was accompanied by my next company car inherited from my predecessor.
The white Vauxhall Cavalier was bought new a few months earlier. Its registration was G622OHO and it was a 1.6-litre, 5-door model.
Like the Escort, it may not sound exciting now but it was a very nice car of its time and I was very happy with it.
Sadly I didn’t have it too long – it was stolen from outside my house some time in 1992. I went out one morning and found only a shower of glass on the roadway. It had vanished, along with my entire collection of Tina Turner types.
It was never recovered.
