And so on to a total of 57 cars by the age of 24 do not recommend this to anyone.
Currently Vectra 2.0 Dti Mofo and a S13 drifty toy
I chose an :dermal: FWD XR2 over a RWD S12 back in the days, can't believe I did that now. I was told RWD car not good for first car.
Fuckin hell Adam, you must have had the most cars ever on this board
ill find out when i start
any sujestions? ( i have £2500)
Wish id concetrated on one now though, a couple stood out as favourites though
1. 5 Turbo first Turbo Car
2. 1st AE86 Got this vision of playing Sega Rally when driving and nearly ended up in the canal (i was 17)
3. First MR2 Ghey SOHC Camry engine but it was red lowered with 17's, I was 18 playing basketball alot and at college. Yes i was the daddy when it came to having a cool car when your mates all had metros and shit . Shit now but at the time i was KING (chicks digged it man)
4. First S13 wondered how anything could be faster.....lol
The rest is just a blur really i got to the point of just buying cars for a laugh to see what they were like.
I seriously wish i'd just kept one and built on it cos with all the money iv'e lost i coulda had some pretty special now
Hopefully iv'e chilled out a bit now on had 7 cars in the last 6 months ive owned this S13 for about 5 weeks now and though about selling it but im back on it again.
Nah Julian beats Adam for number of cars owned, must run into the millions. lol
First car was a 1991 E34 520i SE, the pimp daddy that all my mates thought was 8 grand's worth, when it was 800. haha
first car was a R5GTTurbo ..
then i got heavily into Beetles ..
then Merc 190 Cosworth ... before it became a knobby chav mobile .. now did i love that car ...
yeh buy somethin that runs and is as cheap as possible build up some no claims and then thank yourself in a year or twos time. make sure first car is cheap enough to not worry about if you stack it into a wall or ditch or something.
Blah look at bon bon and adam in their flash cars when they were young...why the fuck did i end up with an escort when i could have apparently had stuff way better for not much more cash
1979 Ford Fiesta 1.1L (same birth year as me )
1989 Ford Sierra 2.0GL (introduction to RWD)
1989 Vauxhall Cavalier 2.0CDi (fantastic car only let down by its FWDness)
1992 Nissan 200SX S13
I like to keep my cars, never ever sold a car yet, Fiesta died, Sierra was written off, didn't get a payout as the driver at fault did a runner, Cavalier was written off this time driver at fault stopped so I got a decent payout, in fact, even better than if I'd have sold it.
Thats a lot of FIRST cars LOL
Mine? Well, it was a Ford Fiesta. 1000cc of pure unadulterated snail ghue
yeh i was looking at using my mums pug 106, to go some no claims, then when im about 19 or so get my own car.
Haha, you best get buying chap, a friend of mines had over 30 cars already and hes only just turned 18 Then again, he DID just get banned for a yeah so you got some time to catch up. LOL
As for me and the original question.....
1.6 L Vauxhall Cavalier. Cos it was cheap to insure. I initially wanted a Nova ( ) but my brother had just rolled his and the parents werent impressed with how it (hadnt) held up.
So I tried to push it the other way and had the 'rents sold on giving me my mums old Carlton 2.0. Then we rang the insurance company TBH I probably woulda killed myself in it, I was dangerous enough with the Cav
I had that Cav for 5 years and then stacked it into a gate post
Nissan S12 (never drove )
Mazda RX7 Turbo II (nearly drove and so miss )
Toyota Starlet RWD (drive!)
Im the same as Brooksie on this one... My first car was also a Renault 5 GT Turbo - Phase 2 in tungsten grey
oh how i miss that car! Fookin rapid for a 1.4. I pissed an R32 GTSt for a quarter mile in it once running a bar of boost, so you skyline owners watch out for those little french fag packets because they pack quite a punch off the lights
Pretty small list in comaprison to some of you guys here.
My first car, Nissan 100NX 1.6i (loved the targatops )
Then came my S13 200SX:
And now my Sil80:
how did you chaps afford insurance on your first car as a 5 Turbo etc etc?
