Do you always love your first car? I certainly did; an old but good pre-BL Morris 12, born in 1938.  :-* :-* :-* :y 8)

No, the said Mk1 Fiesta 950 pop with no reverse light, rubber bulb on the floor for washers, non recline seats, no radio etc was a hateful piece of shite

That's no good for a young man!  :o

Mind you I don't think that Ford Fiesta 950 Pop was ever described as a fanny magnet!  ::)  ;D

The Morris Marina 1800TC Coupe however.....  ;)  :y

Strange that.

I don't recall many girls back in the day saying "Ooooooh , my boyfriend owns a Morris Marina. My pussy is so wet"..... :)

As the OP, I get to decide what is old. My 16 year old Omega is my new car. My 28 year old 190D is my older car, but it isn't old.
Old is 1970,s or older.  :)
You’re just highlighting how old you are migv6 :P

If it was in my garage it would get sold pretty quickly.  ;)

Don't forget to convert it to run on chip oil before you sell it. This will make it more attractive to a wealthy Ferrari enthusiast. :)

A VW beetle I drove used the spare tyre to pump the windscreen washers. What a bleeding stupid idea that was, esp if you had a puncture and you'd flattened your spare by washing the windows.  ;D

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.
