Well I thought it would be cool to see what everyone had as their first car, and pics if you had any?

Here's mine, 1.4 MK6 Escort
Still had the GTI skirts and rear spats to go on, along with a genuine set of 17'' Mille Miglia Spiders in black 8-)

Image

Unfortunately I never got chance to finish her, thanks to a kind farmer spilling sh*t on the road this happened :(

Image

So Let see/ hear about your guys first cars :)

This was mine :) It ended up with a friend who scrapped it when the MOT was gonna cost him too much. Wheels were rubbish and too big haha

Not often the first car doesn't get written off :P as it seems, but I did bump it, there was a fog surround missing and a dent, lol hence why I meshed up the drivers surround

First car I drove was my mums 1.0 Nova Saloon.
My first car was a white 1.1 Pop Plus with Si bumpers and interior.

I don't have any pictures of either to hand but there are some pics of when I smashed the Fiesta somewhere in the house so if I find them i'll scan them in and put them up (yes I am an old bastard who had a car when there were no digital cameras!!)
