Mine was a MK IV 1999-2002 Ford Fiesta. Got it free. My parents bought it for my brother and was passed on to me. Was a good reliable whip.

Moved on to a MK II 2004 Renault Mégane, this was the first car I actually bought myself. Caused me nothing but trouble as it was an unreliable piece of French... You get the picture. However I loved the styling of it and despite all the trouble, I sort of loved it.

Currently got a MK V 2010 Volkswagen Polo. Really do love this car.

Got my full motorcycle licence last year and want a bike but can't afford one, and because of the rules in Northern Ireland I'm restricted to a 125CC for 2 years!!!

I will post some pics when I get home from work. Edit: For are US peeps who don't have these, (I think) 1) Fiest 2) Mégane 3) Polo, the model is my mum lol

Nowhere near as nice as this one, 1980 Camaro.

That's what makes your first car so special - the memories



Mine was an inherited 1984/85 Nissan King Cab ute (pick up)

The damn thing was near indestructible which was just as well, the way I used to drive it. I had more fun in that car than all of my others combined.

In hindsight, I'm glad it wasn't a muscle/turbo rocket car, because I'd be dead.

My mate had the wagon version - that was also near indestructible. Flogged the living hell out that one too.

DKW 3=6 in 1960. It cost 800DM (used) which was about $200 at the time.

This was our family car we had just before the Mercury Station wagon.
I can't believe someone else owned one of these, well in the U. S. anyways.
Ours siezed up on the way to a family gathering in Ramona California and my Mom took the oportunity to get rid of it.
She strongly disliked adding oil to the gas for the 2 stroke engine. LOL Fabe

A brown Plymouth Valiant Brougham 2-door, 318 V-8, automatic.

The last straw was when I started it in the garage, it backfired, parts of the exhaust ripped open, not to mention waking up the dead!

(Don't get me wrong, it was a fun car to have for a while.)

Saab 96 1970. I paid £100 exactly at the time. I've had four of this model over the years and would love one now. Never see them on the road anymore. I don't know whether they are considered a classic car but they are by me

Those Saabs are real classics. I think the early models had 2 stroke engines too. Later I think they switched to Ford engines.
