What was your First car you OWNED.

Just having a debate about the first car we all owned and loved or hated.

Mine was a brown renault 16.
Column change and an umbrella handbrake
poking out of the dash.
It was pig ugly but it was a lovely drive.

Well, I guess its technically a Locost but since it was in bits I dont think that really counts. So its a 2.0l TDDi Mondeo with 260000 miles on the clock.

Some people can never handle the truth and always try to shoot the messenger instead of taking an honest look in the mirror (its always easier to blame another than to face reality), but secretly they wish they could grow a pair and be the messenger !!!

Mk2 3 door Golf GTi 16v in blue (small bumper version)

Had 115,000 miles on it but went like a dream, handled like a go cart compared to the borrowed Mini and Citroens (dad owned a garage so drove all the cast offs and trade ins!) I had driven previously. Luckily I lived to tell the tale but had a few hairy moments but was 22 when I got it thank god. If I'd been 17 I would have got myself in trouble.

A 1968 VW Beetle.

Colour: Toilet Blue. Not sure VW called it that though.

It was great! Used more oil than petrol. Dont suppose running on just 3 cylinders helped as one piston had a huge hole in it as i found out when i set to rebuilding the engine. In fact i had to scrap the whole engine as it so far gone and upgraded to a nice new shiny 1600cc which ran on unleaded.....QUALITY!! Upped the bhp from 35 to oooohh around 50 i reckon!!

You couldn't pwn your way out of a wet paper bag, with "PWN ME!!" written on it, from the "pwned take-away" which originally contained one portion of chicken tikka pwnsala and the obligatory free pwnpadom.

Mk 1 Fiat Uno 60S, E-reg '87.
Though it was bought for me so technically my first bought and paid for was Alfa 146 1.6L M-reg '94.
The Fiat was loads of fun (so light with tin foil panels) and the Alfa felt like an improvement (it had more power and I wanted a boxer after my Grandad's '87 pre-impreza Subaru) until I bought the current Focus.
That's my limited experience!
