    Mine was a bit of dog from what I remember. As I was saying to Lee last night, always drove around with a roll of gaffa tape and a supply of elastic bands.......and a foot pump. Not for the tyres but to keep the Hydrogas suspension.......erm...........inflated.:laugh2:

    the first car i actually drove was when i was 10,it was an old morris 1100 which my dad and i prepared for banger racing. i raced with the juniors until i was 13 then i was TOLD to go with the older guys as i was too aggresive towards the other juniors, but my little morris was no match for the bigger cars the others used,ie austin maxi,granada's jag's,cortina's etc,so i managed to get hold of an accident damaged mk2 jag,1974 and got it ready for the following season. it progressed from there and i had allorts,including a heavily modded rover SD1 which was basicly stripped and rebuilt using steel checker plate,weighed nearly 2 tonne by the time it was finished lol.

    my first car i actually purchased myself when i passed my test at 17 was a ford escort mk1 1300xl 2 door in a gorgeous metallic purple,with 13" alleycat special alloys,2" big bore exhaust and racing buckets with 6 point harnesses.

    then my next car was a 1983 rover SD1 vitesse, 3.5ltr v8 with 5 speed manual. awesome car. bring back the old days i say.

    all this new crap does nothing for me.

    My first car was a Ford Anglia 105E when I was 17:

    A bit like that one. Unfortunately I don't have piccies of it, because I immediatley took it apart. Stupid boy. All it needed was a bit of lowering and some 5.5j rims and I would of had a car. No, I decided to try and fit a Rover V8 into it. at 17. With no cash. What a dullard.

    Experience and hindsight are wonderful things....

    First car that I owned was a beetle from 1969 babyblue, unfortunally no pics but loved it perfect little party wagon easy to spin and play around in the gravel with. Then my brother "helped" me change the sparkplugs and sqrewed them on wrong. That made one of them go "pof" and I swapped it to a 1975 Datsun 120f, BIG MISTAKE.
