what was your first car


Recommended Posts

Just wondering what everyone's first car was. How much it cost and what happened to it?


Mine was a k reg rover 214 sei bought off my friends uncle for the princely sum off £200 which I had to push start every morning!! It ended up in the scrap yard in the sky when I snapped the drive shaft and couldn't afford to fix it. I would love to have that car even now but I'm not sure if that's just nostalgia!

Ford Escort 1.3 - 30,000 Miles on the clock, I modded it subtly, but ruined it with shitty chavy bits & then it got broke into so I scrapped it.




This was as far as the modding went before it was scrapped:

1.4 PTE 5 door "freedom" (yes it's the origional colour)


Paid 2k for it from a dealer in spring 2003, chucked about 5k at it on bits and bobs, crashed it 4 times, one fairly hard non fault, two little ones my fault, then the one that wrote it off which was also my fault)




Probably the biggest regret of my life TBH

Mmine was battered Gold Ford Fiesta 1300 Ghia, it was like shite off a shovel, it had a brown vinyl Roof that was a bit worse for wear.


I took my then Girlfriend at the time to the west Mids safari Park and the monkeys started pulling the vinyl off the roof the little Blasters lol


Loved it though


i then went up market with a Manta which blew up then a Sierra and then onto a Mercury Grey XR3i
