The first car I ever bought was a 1960 Mercury Comet. Actually, I didn't really buy it, I painted a room in a house for it. If that tells you anything. I built my next car, a dune buggy. I guess the first car I "bought" was a 1950 FordF-1 pickup,a hundred bucks. Really wish I had that one back. First new car was a 1972Mercury Capri, German built. Hmmmmm.
Vauxhall Viva for 130 pounds (2nd hand of course) a few weeks after passing my driving test in 1971. Pretty ropey car and my mum shafted me a couple of years later when I planned a road trip to France by "influencing the mechanics" in the local garage to seriously fail the car for its MOT. Subsequently sold for scrap
Mine was a Lamborghini Miura.....oh wait, that was a dream.
The first car I bought with my own money, was a Ford Escort Estate.We had just left a major US company (hint: We're the dot in .Com), and set up a company with a couple of ex salesmen. One of them suggested I buy this car from a contact of his.
I traded this in for a Ford Sierra. A week later the garage contacted me and said "Did you know that Escort was two cars welded together".... I was NOT impressed.
