VW Golf GTI...

But the first one I drove (aside from the learner car from the AA) was a Toyota Corolla from the 70s...well embarrassing with rust everywhere...but when you're 17 a car is a car and when your dad is paying the bills you drive, learn and keep quiet :laughing:

Think I win the uncoolest car for a 18 year old 😕 A 2006 ford focus c-max 1.6 diesel....

The day I traded it in, 6.5 years old, not even 50k on the clock. Got absolutely pennies for it considering the condition it was in. I'd have it back in a heartbeat tho as a daily drive and keep the rs as a garage queen. What am I saying?? A 23 year old that would have a people carrier in a heartbeat...

A 950cc Fiesta. As basic as basic can be inside. But I didn't care, I had freedom! I loved that Fiesta.
It died on Christmas Day 1993. Caught fire driving along in the Yorkshire Dales heading home for my Christmas dinner after work. This may have been related to tinkering I did under the bonnet :blush:

My brother had one of those. I seem to remember that it had a foot operated pump to squirt water onto the windscreen . Haven't cars come a long way!

Mk2 Escort back in 1989, I spent 6 months doing it up, a family friend re sprayed it and then I put it into a wooden fence within 5 days of having it on the road :blush:. My old man was not impressed at the time at all. I did repair it and eventually put it back on the road.
