What was your first car?

Recommended Posts

We all agree that we've now been swayed by the BMW bug at least at some point, but what was your first car? To start the ball rolling, here's mine back in 1982...

They're pretty valuable now too. Strange how values/perceptions change!

Do like the xr2 fiestas too. Nice cars.

First car I was driving around in was a 4 speed 205, it was actually a great little car. I purchased a 1.2 clio soon after, which I successfully rolled into a field after 3 months.

Just put a deposit down on my 21st car in 10 years of driving, a Clio 182.

Is that a touring? Don't see very many of those!

I gave away a gearbox to someone with a 2002 touring recently so he could keep it racing. Must a rare site at a track!

Most have rotted away now or been butchered,a good original one will be valuable for sure,I've had 2 mk2 golf GTI's the last being a run out edition in pearl grey,tastefully upgraded,both would also go for a premium now too,I've also owned a cavalier 4x4 turbo 204bhp rare cars now,if only I had of kept them.
