Just been thinking about my first car at 17 and laffing about it and got me thinking what did every1 else have

Mine was a 1997 P reg green citroen ax 1 litre

I put an ax gt bodykit on with ferrari f50 vent. Renault 5 turbo center exit exhaust

14" saxo alloys

And stripped back seats out to make way for 2 x 12" subs 2 amps and 4 6x9s lol

It literally struggled to move lol

Pic for refrence not my actual car

Mk 1 Astra 1.2 in baby poo beige - resprayed it black, was years ahead of its time as the engine used to cut out when leaving the motor way or approaching lights, never did find out why but did go through x2 starter motors :wacko:

Vauxhall Corsa B 1.2 vegas. As far as I can tell the vegas meant a rev counter and different cloth trim! Happy days walking in to the local garage and asking what can I do to make it go faster... the mechanics face said it all. :dry:

Technically a 1997 impreza sport 2.0- got it aged 14 for just under £500, mainly to tinker with and learn about cars! Was lucky enough to buy a few days provisional insurance on this (hence L plates) but was too expensive to insure when I passed...

The first car I drove on the road on my own answer is very boring: a 1.0 corsa (awful thing) ImageUploadedByTapatalk1487706454.258323

First car was a B reg ford Fiesta. It was a 0.9 litre engine and had done 100k. This was when I passed my test at 17. It was all I could afford and was more rust than car. It fell to pieces about 6 months after I bought it and was replaced with an Austin Metro 1.3. I crashed this about 3 times much to the annoyance of my Dad. I saw one on eBay the other day and someone wanted 6k for it ! Had loads of cars since, even had an Evo at one point :0) ....
