    Default First Car?

    Was chatting to some work buddies the other day about the first car they ever owned. Mine? I'll tell you that in a sec. The year was 1971, i was 17 and i had just passed my driving test (1st time too!), time to see my (un)friendly bank manager about a loan. I remember him to this day, he was such such an arrogant t**t! Wanted to borrow a hundred and fifty quid (my keypad won't let me do a pound sign, aaaarrrrggghh!), i weren't in his good book books and the most he would lend me was a ton. Anyway my Dad lent me the other 50 and a week later i was the proud owner of a 1963.....wait for it.....Vauxhall Victor! FB Model i think it was back then.
    Its laughable to think about it now 36 years later but back then to be fair i was over the moon with it, sad i know. REAL plastic seats back then, awful in summer cos you suffered with a sticky a**e and flippin' freezing in winter. Think it was something like 15 or 1600cc. Took me and me mates all over in it. Ahh the joys of youth eh? I'd be interested to hear what was your 1st car? Don't be embarrassed, its between friends!

    Mine was an "N" 1974 Vauxhall Viva, bought it for £75 in 1985.
    Built like a tank, even had a home made wooden console fitted round the gearstick for the radio.
    Traded it in a year later for an Escort RS 2000 "t" reg for £100, bargain.
    It was a very simple car mechanically wise, so not much to go wrong, unlike the modern VX

    My first car is a 1978 mini clubman estate in white with 1098cc engine and I still own her. I have tried to sell her three times, but after 16 years I could not part with her.
