What was your first car

Answering the "Tyred" thread set me thinking.
My first car was a 1932 BSA V Twin three wheeler like this one click here
I wish I still owned it. I bought it for £16, and sold it about 18 months later for £18 to help raise the money to buy an engagement ring for my wife at a cost of £27. She still wears it today!

Oh! slightly different but in my case the answer is the same.

Sorry €dstowe, I did a search for first car and it came up blank. If there are no replies I will tick it.

!949 Ford Anglia that cost £49. Fondly known as a 'puddle jumper'.

My first car was a 1980 pacific blue Mini, still my favourite car despite the fact that it leaked so I had to drill holes in the footwells to let the rainwater out.

The rain would also cause the rear window heater fuse to blow, which took out the indicators at the same time.

And the battery (in the boot) terminals had become corroded so that occasionally it would fail to start - the remedy was to smack the right hand terminal with a hammer to knock the rust out.

Kids today don't have this kind of fun, because they all buy brand new Citroens & Peugeots which come with free insurance...
