First car Mini of course, what else could you afford when your 17 in 1977.

Something like this without the arches and spots.

Then I had a Volvo 360GLT used to drive 65 miles Elgin to Aberdeen and back every day???? It never let my down once.

Then it gets boring with peugeot diesels etc

Until we got the Pink Jazz!

Had to share this one with some people who might be interested.
Went to a local car show a couple of weeks ago (Himley Hall Dudley).
While I was walking round boring my Son with tales of my old cars I came across a Capri.
Just as I said I had one exactly the same as that, I walked to the front and realised it was my old Capri!

Great thing was it was in fantastic condition only having 73k miles on it and being owned by the same bloke since 1989 until he sold it to his mate a few months ago.

Nice story , great coincidence eh ?

I had a brand new 1.6 Capri Lazer in 1981ish (y reg I think) but would never admit that fact in public ... :wink: Part exed it for a new shape rs turbo (c reg ??) that rusted away even faster than the capri had been doing ... :lol:

Couldbn't quite believe it myself, but it was great to see.
My cousin had one of those turbo nutter escorts, had it nicked from a multi storey in newcastle. Back in the days of mobiles happily being left in cars. So he phoned his own mobile which the thief answered and predictably laughed and told him to F*** off. Car and phone never to be seen again!

What a trip down memory lane that was! I think my first fully road legal car (ie no rust holes bigger than your hand) was about half way down that list.

Some of these overlapped others and some I only kept a week or two. I`m sure I`ve left a few out as well.

Out of all of them, only the Scenic and the Virago were stolen. I got the Virago back the same day!

A veritable Google-feast Mike :P It's so easy to reminisce with pictures nowadays, memories at the stroke of a keyboard, great. I'll get my list up soon - have some original scans as well. Problem is remembering them all :oops:
