I'm interested to know what cars do Brian, Roger and John own? Also how many?!

Any pictures, maybe?

According to Jackie Stewart, John apparently owned a Volvo!

...but while your still the proud owner of the Magic Years boxset, I highly doubt that John still owns the above mentioned Volvo... that´s a proof to me that life goes on, isn´t it? ;-)

I think Roger might have an Aston Marton, and I think Brian may have a Mercedes. I don't know about John, though.

I've seen a pic before of Brian and Roger next to a silver Mercedes, but that is lost somewhere on Brian's website! And it was a long time ago. I read somewhere about Roger having an Aston Martin. I cant' remember where that was either. One of those "profile" things, I think. Sorry I'm not much help!

I've always wondered the same thing too.

John still have that volvo... i´ve seen pics of John´s house and that damn ugly car is still there xD hahahaha..

Somewhere in the pictures section, there is pictures of Roger´s house for sale, and a black Aston Martin is parked there..

Brian being a family lover :P... must use a 4x4... I´m sure... and it goes with his style I think..

Bye!

I can picture Brian draggin' the whole family around in the 4x4 lol. Then his kids are in the back are like "Daddy, I'm thirsty" "I'm hungry!" "Daddy I really really have to go to the bathroom!!" and Brian's like "Quiet down back there, or we're not stopping for ice cream!!" and Anita's like "Dear, shouldn't we stop for directions?" "NO! I know how to get there, we don't need to stop for directions." lol. At least that's how my family was.

Brian said on his website that he drives a Geo Metro. He said he likes it because it can only go 40mph.

I think John's first car was a Mini that he bought for 50 pounds very long time ago. He had a Volvo as well, the one mentioned by Jackie Stewart, and I've read somewhere that he bought himself a Porsche in the 80's and after having a drink or two at a Status Quo gig's after party he was stopped by the police for drinking and driving. /the legend says that's why Freddie added the "don't drink and drive my car, don't get breathalized" line to Don't loose your head/

I think Roger had many cars. I'm sure sometime he had a Ferrari, which caught fire in france, and I remember a story by Chris Taylor of driving to Montreux in a Rolls Royce, but I'm not totally sure of it. But Roger is a great fan of cars so I think he had many of them.

I know Freddie owned a Mercedes. He didn't have a driving licence so it was driven by a man called Terry Giddings and after Freddie died I think he inherited the car.

According to interview with Guitar magazine, Brian had, around 1998, a Miata in the driveway and a 'strech' Jag at his London home
