Just been talking to a mate !!!!! Well he aint a mate just someone i know !!!! And his mum and dad have just bought him a brand new Mazda RX-5 !!! Think thats what its called !!! The fast 1.3 engine and funny back door car as i informed him !!! This is his second car !!! His 1st a Clio 172 sport !!! Bought by his mam and dad too !!!

Now yer parents nearly always buy yer 1st car !!! Or help finance it !!!

Mine was a Mini !!! And not those BMW ones !!!! A D reg 1986 jobby !!! :bash:

All my cars since have been financed by myself !!!! As is everything i have !!

But what was yer first car and how did yer pay for it and how much of a shed was it ??????

Bet it was nothing like the above!!!

My first car ....(Jesus this is really gonna date me !!!)...was ....................An Ex US Army 1946 willy's jeep !!!........canvass top & no heater .......

But Ya know ......if I was offered it back tomoz ...I'd be there in a shot !!!! & think what it's worth NOW !!!!!

it was 24 Quid in a auction sale at Birchwood airfield ...(when it (The areodrome) was sold off in 1972)

EVERY time I drive down the M62 into Liverpool I look over to that Huge hanger & remember drivin it out & on to the road ..NO tax No Ins No MOT ..No Fook all really ......ended up tradin it in fer a 1966 mini Cooper "S" wiv a 1071 short stroke engine !!!!1

Oh & it's reg No ........WWK 609... That's prob worth Even MORE NOW !!!!

Aww Bollox ....I'm all upset now !!!!!

A 1.2 B reg Ford escort. Given to me for free by my Ex's parents for FREE! :mrgreen:

Took it for a spin in the evening. The following day the ex put it through a brick wall whilst learning to drive in a car park...

All my cars have been financed by myself, parents never rich enough to buy me a car LOL. My first was a £900 MG Metro Turbo, fantastic little car, that eventually fell to bits (not surprising though living near the sea at the time).

My first car was an Opel Corsa V reg 1.0 12v 3 cyl job paid for by myself with a little help from mum. The zed is my 2nd car which is partly financed by the £3500 part-ex deal that I got, I'm paying for the rest myself.

mine was a D reg Gold coloured golf 1.6 td when i was 17! it was a beast!

it only cost my parents £100 and i had it for ages and still never had to do a single thing to it! it was a tank! i'm sure its being used in iraq making way for the army tanks!

2nd was a punto funded by me

3rd was my zed, also funded by me!
