Oh dear, I knew this question was going to pop up one day.  :-[
Perhaps a simpler question would be be 'of all the Omegas you own, how many can you remember where they are?'  :D
Thats actually more difficult to answer than the first question.  ;D

You have a good memory Albs, and yes, it was over a Pint with Twiglet in one of he's Locals, all of that info was about right at the time, think it was around 2011 (8 years ago  :o), problem is I did buy some more after that and it all kinda went down hill shortly afterwards.   :D

Two:

PFL 2.5TD Estate in burgundy, which was a bit of a nail (and returned awful mpg)
FL 3.2 Estate in green, which was extortionately expensive (Roger Buddens), suffered all the usual problems and eventually sold for about 400 two/three years after I paid 4000

I'd consider another if they weren't all knackered, rusty and on their last legs, as they really were a lovely comfy ride.

Ten I think, but could be more, collected from as far afield as Hartlepool, Haverfordwest and Clacton.

I still have a 2003 3.2 police special, had it 13 years, now on its 8th clutch.

I hope to attend the Brackley gathering in my battered V reg. estate. sporting three items from previous cars.

The 1st was a 2.6 CDX saloon in silver in which the engine died. 2nd was a 2.5 elite saloon also silver which was written off by a Frenchman in a rental mokka. 3rd was a 2.2 manual GLS estate in nocturno blue which I sold to a banger racer unfortunately. 4th was a 3.2 elite estate in nocturno blue which was vandalised by druggies several times but now lives in Bristol. 5th was a 2.5 elite estate in a weird sort of reddish brown which was sold to someone who probably dismantled it or raced it. and the current one is familiar to several people on here too and which has been hit by an Asian in a Vectra who drove off and as also had one of the doors kicked in (druggies again). but is now ok again.
