    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 :worthy: . 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 :cry:

    Hopefully iv'e chilled out a bit now on had 7 cars in the last 6 months :wack: ive owned this S13 for about 5 weeks now and though about selling it but im back on it again.

    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

    Since 1997......

    1979 Ford Fiesta 1.1L (same birth year as me :wack: )
    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. :)

    Haha, you best get buying chap, a friend of mines had over 30 cars already and hes only just turned 18 :wack: 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 ( :wack: ) 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 :cry: TBH I probably woulda killed myself in it, I was dangerous enough with the Cav :smash:

    I had that Cav for 5 years and then stacked it into a gate post :cry:

    Im the same as Brooksie on this one... My first car was also a Renault 5 GT Turbo - Phase 2 in tungsten grey

    R5GTT.

    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 ;)
