1981 Chrysler Sunbeam Ti.

Bought it for £400 back in 1992. THis is the only picture I have of it now, the dreaded rust monster did for it in the end :lol:

Ahhh the sound of twin 40's sucking through trumpets sniff sniff, brings a tear to the nostalgic eye. The Spax adjustables I had on it on the other hand make my STi's HKS setup seem particularly comfy :driving:

I had two cars before I even passed my test :lol: (nae surprise there really!!)

1st was a 1972 VW Beetle (looked good but was a mechanically a shed)

then a 1980 Mini Van. I spent a fortune customising it inside and out :driving:

First scooby was a 1997 turbo in Reddish Blue metallic ;) which I bought new from Nobles . The rest as they say is history :)

I had a Vauxhall Viva. Finished laughing?

Long story, two cars into one, shell never been on road (mechanic training vehicle) and donor vehicle. In the end it was a two door saloon, with the Firenza(anyone know what I mean) Droopsnoot fitted on and in white. Ran it for about a year then ditched the 1256cc sewing machine and fired in a 2300cc VX engine one weekend. Holy crap, that transformed things!!! Never kept it after that as moved into a more modern XR3i.

Viva reg was TGA102R, no one ever forgets their first car no matter how sh!t it was.

Me too, had a mint 1975 mini, with 19k that my granny had owned since new.

It had never been above 30mph till I got it, then it lasted about a year

I had 3 cars before i was old enough to pass my test, first at age 8, an L reg fiat 500L, then a J reg Fiat 500L and finally a Datsun 100a, can't remember the year of it but i did tie up the front wishbone with berry wire after it snapped :driving:

First car on the road was an Xreg Mk3 Escort in sienna red (brown) with white steel 8 spokes and those dangly conductors on the back bumper, just in case i got struck by lightning :lol:
