My First car purchased WAS....

As the title suggests.

What was your first ever car ever purchased and how old where you?

Mine was a 1970 HG 253 V8 Holden station wagon ( in vomit green ) back in 1977 and I was 17 at the time.

1980 Alfetta GTV 2.0l at 16.... $600, held together by rust, electrics worked when they decided the time was right, but sounded great with twin Dellortos!

Austin Healy Sprite Mk 11A. 18 YO. Drove it as though I was Jim Clark. When I blew the engine I had it bored and tuned with extractors, cam, high comp' pistons and a 45mm Weber. It then would twist and snap the puny axles where the spline entered the diff so I carried a spare axle around with me in the boot plus the tools to do a roadside swap. Stripped out its already meager comforts and fitted a one piece fibreglass front which hinged forward off the chassis. When I was taking it to be painted I had the front fitted loosely because it was just a short trip and it had to be taken off again; not thinking, braked hard at a downhill intersection and the whole front came off the car and went sliding on down the road. How embarrassing! Removed the bumpers, the windows and the quarter vents and fitted curtains to the roof ( which was never up ). It was so light I could pick up the back. Blew the engine again but by this time I could work on it blind folded. Had little bits of cut in half washer to shim the inlet manifold. The non syncro first ( from an Austin light truck ) was so low geared you could climb a tree with it, consequently, with the extra power, I always started off in second so it was effectively a 3 speed. 4th topped out at about 70 mph. I had padding fitted to the roll bar and another pad for the top of the screen to carry surfboards. 4 point harness in case I rolled it. Widened ( steel ) wheels with pumped rear guards. Mags came later.
Brilliant brilliant unassisted direct steering that Porsche should copy for feel.

You would have to point a gun at my head to get me back into one.

Some self flagellating fool actually drove an MG Midget ( the same car, different badge ) around the world for charity. He drove 39,000 miles alone through 27 countries . His book is appropriately titled - "Not in that car!", by Roy Locock. Yes that's his real name.

Brilliant Red 1990 e30 318is early 20s. Still wish I have held on to it, just for its looks and how well it was built.

1966 VW Beetle when I was 15.
It was a great car to learn how to drive in.
Plenty of understeer on entry and tons of oversteer on exit,
especially on snow

1995 e36 318i in Monaco Blue. It was 12yrs old at the time I got it and I was 18ish. Still in the family - engine's still going strong but no aircon (without new compressor and that ain't happening for what its worth) and electronics are shaky.

I still think it had the best steering system i've ever driven.

Yes, it was a Volvo 544. If you have never seen one, it's like this, see....


Mine was white. It was a 1964. I got it in 1974.
It hauled a$$ as I recall, but had mechanical brakes that punctuated every stop with a question mark.
