Do you remember the thrill of getting your very own first car?
I thought it would be an interesting thread to see what everyone's first car was and pics if you have them!

My first car of my very own.....

[img]http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu31/KellyPics2009/suzie.jpg[/img]

When I got a better car, I couldn't bear to sell her so she is still sat on a friends farm. Didn't want anyone else with a pink car on the island!

My first car was a Peugeot 107, cheap and a great little car! Sold it 18 months later :lol: Yes, they are wheel trims :(

Arrr it's sad when you think of it not being around anymore :( That's why mine is still sat there and hasn't been scrapped, even when I have been really short of cash!

My first ever car is my fezzy! After my dad suddenly past away 3 years ago when it was coming round for me to start driving a year later, with the money he had left me i was flicking through dealer sites to see if anything caught my eye and when i saw "Oscar" i fell in love. My mum phoned the dealer straight away to see if they still had it and if they did could we take it out for a test drive. Although I knew from the beginning it would have to be a fiesta, as my brother and sister both had when they were learning and my dad had owned many classic fiestas so it was kind of a tradition to own one.. ^_^

The first picture i ever saw of my baby :wub: He'll be 4 on his birthday this year! :D

[size=4]My very first 'car' was an NSU Prinz 4L, the same as the one in the pic. Same colour as well. The reg. was PSP 345J. It had an air cooled 600c.c. 2 cylinder engine. I bought it from my maths teacher for £25 when I was 16! Now I know why maths was not my best subject! :lol: [/size]

first car was a Triumph Stag v8, went like hell and so did the fuel! but when your young and single it did not seem to matter so much.
Colin Heath
First car was a Fiesta Popular E138GRF... was very basic, a world away from my current Fester
Stoney871

I don't have any pictures but mine was a Mk3 Fiesta. Called it Skippy cause it was just that....a skip! Did a fair old chunk of mileage in it though and couldn't fault it. My mum even had it after me for a year!
ManxKat
Those old fiestas were like little tanks weren't they. Lasted forever :)

My first car was a Ford Escort Mk 3, reg SFJ 79 X. I got it in 1988, had it a couple of years then traded it in for another, newer Escort.

My First car was an off white old V-reg Escort 1.3 Estate Mk2... with silver windows :S

Had a it a few months, then one night lost the back end on a bend in the wet, mounted a double kerb and rolled it 2.5 times

Similar to this one

It was a great little thing, it did start to slowly die before my mum got rid of it though. Think it went to the scrap heap in the sky :(

Luckily I climbed out of the hole that used to be the windscreen injury free... considering back then i never wore a seat belt. The corbeau Bucket seats i had in the car seemed to save me being thrown around.

But spookily, the guy i bought the bucket seats off rolled his car on exactly the same day the year before :o

My first car was a 1.0l Corsa Comfort which was affectionately named Doofus because the reg ended in DFS. Many sofa jokes were also made :P. Great wee car to get started in the world of driving but you can imagine the joy of moving up to a 1.8 focus :).

I can imagine that was a nice feeling. I was driving round in a Saxo VTS when I first passed my test, then my other half brought me home a 1.0l Corsa. I was not impressed!!!!! I had a go of it just to prove I would hate it, and I was right, I mean I had to change gear just to go round small bends!!!! :lol:
Jammin0990
Haha, yeah the Corsa is a hair dryer with wheels but to be fair it got me from A to B.....well eventually. Turns out electrical problems are rife in them. A problem with a lambda sensore left me at the side of the road at rush hour after college one day :/. My Focus is a warrior though. Had the same problem with the lambda sensor and a misfire on cylinder 4 but each time I've been able to limp to a garage. :)
ManxKat
Well exactly, when you first pass you are grateful of anything - have to start somewhere!

First Car was a Mk2 Focus LX in Panther Black
jordan_macgregor
My first car was a 1.25 Fiesta Freestyle, loved it! Dont miss it though, its as much as i was willing to pay insurance wise but the 1.6 petrol just has enough punch for me, for now ;P

I'm still not that brave when it comes to making modifications, so it was mainly cosmetic what i had done to the Fiesta, but still loved it.

I'll put some new pics up of my new [had it almost a year] car, once iv finished LED lighting it to the hills!
John Jones
2002 Vauxhall Astra 1.6

I couldn't afford to drive until I was in my mid-20s, so ended up driving my partner's when I finally passed my test. It was a lovely car.

It was quite a shock when I had to drive a T-reg 1.1 Peugeot 206 between that car and my current car, as I had never driven anything smaller than a 1.6, ever! It was a little pedestrian for my liking.
Fastfordman
2002 Ford Ka was only 10 months old at the time.

It lasted all of two weeks before I started messing with it by changing the radio . Swapped for a brand new fiesta 1.25 finesse after 18 months as it was basic to say the least.
Preee
My first car was a Nissan Sunny , brought it real cheap as the engine had blown it was 12 months old at the time , yeah it sucked , but not as bad as when i swapped it for a Rover Vanden Plas 216 what a mistake that was haha

MK1 2 door white 1.1 escort £50 plus £150 to get it through MOT.
DaveD
1965 Singer Chamois CTK 979C (posh Hillman Imp to you). £395 in 1967 just over two years old with 18k on the clock. I could fill the six gallon tank for £1-10s (£1.50p). I bought this because I learnt to drive in a Hillman Imp, eight lessons at £1 a lesson and passed first time.
