My First One Ever


Recommended Posts

I posted this in my thread about my S4, but got no responses so i thought it deserved it's own thread.

Let's see pics of your first one. Minds out of the gutter folks. I'm talking cars. I'll start.

The inimitable Mazda 800 Estate. Very similar to an esprit actually. 4 Cylinders, 4 wheels, gearbox behind the engine, rear wheel drive, windows. I wonder why I upgraded? :)

Come on everyone, don't be shy... :)

Hmmm. Why doesn't the pic of my car load?

You needed to put image tags around the picture rather than a link to the picture for it to show in the post like this:

Actually here are my first 4 cars (I get bored quickly). My fave was the XR2 which I sold for the Scirocco and then bought it back as I couldn't bear to be parted from her. I still see it around now, it lives in Eaton, Norwich and it looks the same as when I owned her.

Hi,

This wasn't my first, but definetly one of my favourites, even fitted a TV and Video in it way before LCD's were around. Rover SDi V8SE with Vitesse kit.

This was my first car, a 'lovely' 1.3 Austin Metro... :)

rolled it at about 2am the night before, about 11 years ago now, on a stormy night with Def Leppard on the radio if I remember correctly.

Not a scratch on me, but the following summer I started to re-build it, and I pulled a broken front light right into my knee, giving me a deep cut. It got infected a week later and I ended up in hospital for a week...! :sofa:

Mine was one of these - same colour. And before you young chaps start to titter, it was as old as me when I bought it!

No picture, unfortunately, but my first car was a '67 MGB, British Racing Green, of course. Purchased in 1971, followed up by a '63 "B" a few years later. Love those British cars! I know--there must be something terribly wrong with me.

Some awesome first cars guys.

My Mazda doors had red vinyl on them which in 1980 just didn't cut it so I was off to Woolworths where I lived and bought myself two vivid blue (much the same as the outer colour) furry mats which got cut out and bonded to the masonite door inners. Cool. B) Seats were still red vinyl. No cassette player, just an AM radio which sucked, so I carted around a portable cassette player which ran on batteries which I had to hold on when getting exuberant in corners or it flew across the car and slammed into the passenger door or me. :o

Rebuilt it with my dad from totally seized. Never got cuddly in it with anyone. :( No wonder really. :X

ps Sorry I didn't do a big search before starting this up Alex. :innocent:
