    Default What was your 1st car and how old were you?

    As the title suggests really. My 1st car was a Mk 2 Cavalier SRI 130 and i was only 18. As you can imagine the insurance crippled me but it was worth it.

    17 years old..Triumph Dolomite 1850 Sprint with overdrive. In red and a cracking car....(promptly followed by a MK1 1300E Escort) Both would be worth a few quid now.

    My first car and learnt to drive in was a Morris Marina at 18. Awful car in every way. If you accerated too hard it used to flood the carb and stall .
    Then seen sense just after passing my test and bought an Astra Mk1 1300S . But got bitten buy the hot hatch bug and sold it 3 months later to buy a Mk1 Golf GTi . Cracking car.....very quick - it had been modified in some way cos it didnt arf pull you back in your seat
