First car I ever drove was a 1978 Austin Allegro 1100S (no quartic steering wheel) which was, coincidentally, a driving instructors car; but not my instructor, because I was about 12 and it was my grandfathers car.

I actually learnt to drive in a Corsa B, circa 1995. No idea what the reg was. But once I'd passed, that Allegro became my first car.. still complete with dual controls!

Passed car and bike test in 1977. The Queen decided to throw street parties all over the country. Nice touch I thought. :)

This was when you could pass your bike test on a 100 MPH 250.......and not a nancy boy 125 like today.
