Two a 2.6 CDX manual saloon & a 2.2 CDX auto estate 2.6 was faultless the 2.2 was gutless & had the usual problems associated with the Desmonds.

A few.......   5th Amendment and all that   :-X ;D

Probably easier to say what flavor I havent owned, never owned or driven a 2.5 or 2.2Dti, otherwise got the T Shirt for the rest.

My Favs are and were, 2.5TD CD Black Estate, a really good Workhorse, My first MV6, 3.0 Manual Estate, Leather with all the Toys, has moved on to a better life now with a SuperCharged V8 under the Bonnet, and lastly my 3.2 Manual Silver ExPlod Saloon with LPG, still have that but currently off the Road.

First time I met you, you had a count up and decided you probably had 13 at that time, but you weren't completely sure. You had a bit of trouble remembering where you had left several of them.  ;D

About a dozen. I currently run six, all petrol and manual.
I began enjoying big Vauxhalls buying ex-police Senators at West Oxfordshire Motor Auctions (WOMA), Witney. They were lovely cars to drive, very fast, but with that distributor stuck just behind the cheese grater grille, prone to be bad starters unless run every day. I ran a fleet of 4 for a while. As the clutches failed I moved on to Omegas, which were available more cheaply on e-bay, and have a wonderful members' forum. Sadly, Omegas were last manufactured in 2004, and were not replaced by another RWD big saloon, so now we enthusiasts have to struggle on with 18 year old rust buckets or Jaguars.

Just this one, which I've had for 8 years.
I reckon it's got a couple of years left, before I move onto a Volvo(probably)
I no longer see RWD as a requirement, but if I'm going to own a big car it needs to be an estate

My Current First and only Omega is the Pinnacle of my families vauxhall owning history.

In 1993 I bought a 30K E reg Mk2 cavalier 1.6GL off my father in law, and foolishly sold it in 1997.
In 2000 I was GIVEN a 1992 J reg mk3 Cavalier 1.8L from the same man, and my wife used it until 2013
In 2001 I bought a 1.4 Lsi Mk3 astra saloon. which I wrote off in 2002,
and bought a 1.4LSi mk3 astra hatch,
Which was written off in 2004 which was replaced by a C Reg Mk2 cavalier 1.8e CDI auto costing 6.67 which was replaced about 6 months later by a 1.8e SRI mk2 cavalier saloon costing 40
Which was joined by a CalibrE mk2 cavalier 2.0SEH which threw it's conrods through the block on the Runcorn bridge
Eventually in 2008 the SRi was replaced by a mk3 astra 1.6 Arctic spi, which was written off in 2010.
Then in 2014 my son was given a mk4 astra W reg 1.6 16V Club by his grandad with 18K on the clock and in 2015 I bought a mk4 astra 54 reg 1.6 16V sport, with only 30K on the clock but it was so uncomfortable that in 2016 I replaced it with a 3.2 MV6 (auto) saloon. It has 195K on the clock now.
Intention is to keep adding 20K a year and keep it on the road as long as possible.

I`ve had just one,a MV6 saloon, which I had for four years before the tin worm got the offside front chassis leg and the ABS ECU failure saw it off to the scrappers.
