    Bright red ford escort MKII. Very battered by the time I had finished with it, but I loved it.
    09 XFS 3.0D PL, Black on black, 20" kalimnos. What more could a girl want?

    So I open my door to my enemies
    And I ask could we wipe the slate clean
    But they tell me to please go **** myself
    You know you just can't win.

    I find it sad how people who barely know me or my story act like they have the right to judge me.
    You judging me does not define who I am.... It defines who you are!

    Great subject ....
    mine was a mk1 cortina , with a 8 track stereo ( high end in car entertainment for it's day )
    at tick over it sounded like a wound down gramophone , as I accelerated the music turned into pinky and perky on acid.
    When my best loved tracks came on . I changed gear / revs to keep the music sweet.
    Ahh , if only life was still this simple.

    Peugeot 504 Estate, 21 before I needed a car, was serving in the Royal Marines, beer tokens were more important, then marriage and kids came along, FiL was serving in Germany and buying a new Merc as his retirement gift so gave me his 4 yr old 504, lovely motor in its day.

    Great memories of a Ford Cortina Mk1, the heater on it was great. That was in 1976 but cant remember the car year.

    Mine was an old Vauxhall Viva, NTB 707R Royal red (I think) burgundy anyway, donated to me by my then father in law for helping him with his new Ford Cortina and passing my test in it. Affectionately known as the "bodge" for obvious reasons, it always broke down outside a pub or at the front door, woe betide if you washed it you may as well call the RAC at some stage in the next journey. Three engines and two gearboxes later I partexed it for an A reg Vauxhall Cavalier 1800 fuel injection white, that car was probably the most reliable car I have ever owned.

    You and me both!

    What is obvious from this thread is that many have fond memories of their first car, and wish they still had it.

    I am one of their number, but would lay odds that if I drove the Sprite now I would be amazed how bad it was: Though the way you could hang the tail out very predictably would still appeal ........

    Austin A35 with no floor purchased for £10 (about £80 now) in 1969. The car was ancient then. I had to put a new floor in supplied by my brother who worked at an Engineering company gratis. I spent weeks during a hot summer drilling and pop riveting the floor in only for it to fail the MOT on the brakes I did get more for it in scrap than I paid so I saved up and got an Escort 1300 XL (LVM820G). I sprayed the grill matt black as I coveted an Escort Mexico but couldn't afford one.
    Comfortably numb...
