    My first was a little beat up old Golf( can't remember specs guys!). It was pale blue and kept on breaking down soon to be followed by another blue car Ford Escort 1600. Much better! My favourite car ever was a £200 Ford Capri that the the previous owner had T-cut( took it back to another coat of paint underneath). I loved that car! It was a beautiful red colour with that distinctive long bonnet and I used to have to put my daughters baby seat in the front. It couldn't go faster than 60 miles an hour without extreme effort but I didn't care! One day I parked it in a supermarket car park for some milk and someone had nicked it. I only left it for 5-10 minutes. I was gutted. The police found it funnily enough near we live now but in a side road in a ditch with all my windows smashed in. I was heartbroken because we didn't have any money to do it back to original condition so I had to scrap it. That was one of my worst days ever! Yes, I am a bit of a car fanatic, always have been, maybe because my dads family used to stock car race in their early days. It's in the blood. I have an Isuzu trooper 7 seater for the kids and to pull the horse trailer. Also blue. There is a trend there I think. Anyway, please tell me about your cars.

    My first car was a motorbike :) A Honda C70 that I still remember fondly. My first car was a 1963 Mini, and that is still probably my favorite car ever. I'm still a biker, with a Kawasaki Vulcan 500 and an Aprillia 50cc scooter, though if I were to buy a car now I might go for one of the new Fiat 500s.

    Have fun,
    Gleth

    I love those minis especially red ones or the ones with the Union Jack on them. Do you like the new version mini. I'm afraid my brother despaired of me ever riding pillion with him on his motorbike. Apparently I'm meant to lean into the bends not try desperately to stay upright and destablise the whole bike. I ride horses not bikes and yes, they are unpredictable but so can other road users for you bikers. We have a pub up the road which has a bikers night on Thursdays where all the bikers and family have a BBQ.

    A Fiat 500 - the original one, not the current model. Two-cylinder air-cooled engine, no synchromesh gears (all that double-declutching!). Gas (petrol) tank just in *front* of the passenger compartment, fabric sun roof - but what character.

    My husbands favourites are anything James Bond drives but he can dream especially when his wife keeps buying these expensive gadgets!

    My first car was a PINTO. No further comment is necessary. My next one was a very cool brand new T-Top BLUE ( Haley ) Camero!

    It was way C00L.;)

    Wow! I am jealous, you are not in the same league. I got into a Camero once in SA and it was so fast! I loved it. My dad had mercedes S sports car with soft and hard top and that was one hell of a car and a lovely red colour.
