The first car was a Mk4 Cortina in beige / rust and primer and powered by a 1.6 pinto lump - this was about the time when the XR3's and 3i's were coming out, my "old banger" used to make minced meat of them :D

R reg (1976) Ford Escort Mk2 1.3L, "Sahara Beige".
I think it lasted about 3 months before another identical car failed to give way to me on a mini-roundabout and wrote both off.

Still have it stored in my mum's garage .. project for a time in the future ...

Project is starting ... well at least I'm going to start acquiring the bits I need. First up is a front disc conversion to make the wotsit stop a bit better. (If anyone hears of anyone breaking a Metro let me know as the pedal box and cylinders are apparently the thing to use!)

Went to see one the Chairman of local A30/A35 Owner's Club yesterday and had a ride in an A35 for the first time since the late 70's ... only this one wasn't standard ... 1400cc TURBO-CHARGED engine under the bonnet ... rapid and loud!

My first car was a Volkswagen Golf 1.6 which I just sold last year. For this holidays we got an offer for a cheap car rental, we got almost exactly the same Golf that we used to have and we are driving it all the way up north to Glasgow. Can't wait :)

Funny thing if you didn't know. This post was made by person hired for seo for that website.how do I know? I made software that helped people doing that :-P

On topic, I didn't have car yet, but my father have 306 that I drove few times but I really like peugeot 206cc look, I was looking at audio tt and mazda rx8,but I am leaning towards peugeot, even though I don't really care about cabriolet function, but it looks much better closed than normal 206

Wanted a mk2 1600E Cortina but this was the sensible option and Dad let me have it cheaper, regretted it ever since.
Wish i'd had the Dolomite Sprint I nearly had also, regretted not having that ever since also.......
