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.

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.

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.

The first car I drove was a 1l Yaris 1999. Was my dads old car and drove it for half a year after I passed. First car I actually paid for is my 1.6 Focus Zetec S 2011 and was 2500 cheaper on insurance than the Yaris. Had the Focus for 8 months now and still amazes me every time I look at it :)

My first car was a pale green Ford Anglia that wouldnt do more than 40mph without shaking itself to peices but it was ok for poodling round the trading estates learning to control a car, we quickly got shot of it and bought a Mk 1 Escort 1300L which I had for about 2 years until the day before I took my test when I was confident of passing I bought a Marina 1.8TC, It had twin SU Carbs and went like stink !(the reason my test took so long to happen was the fact that I was in the Navy and could only squeeze lessons in whilst on leave every 4-5 months.
The Mk 1 Escort and Dads Cortina Mk 3 (my little brother Chris in the drivers seat! He's now a driving instructor!)
