My very first car was a Datsun 120Y, bright yellow. I think they only had yellow paint. I never saw one in another colour.
Yellow and rust actually.
If I hit a bump in the road a bit of the bodywork fell off !
I've had a fair few cars - when I had money - and no family - now I've got a Ford Focus estate.
Loser - as my kids call me.

Hi Bjr, i got here at last. :lol:

The Bugatti Veyron is a gorgeous car. 8)

I'm learning to drive at the moment in my dads Ford Modeo so i'd have to say that. Only problem is i'm 5ft tall and it's a big, heavy car. It'll be right though. :lol:

My very favorite car was the first one I myself picked out and paid for. Not one that my now-ex-husband picked for me. The one I picked for myself was a 1986 silver grey VW Jetta GL. Great handling, great gas mileage, and fun and easy to drive. When I got the car, it had 112,000 miles on the odometer, and when my daughter finally blew the engine about a year ago, we estimate that it had at least a million miles on it (The odo quit working years ago). Original engine, second transmission. This car went everywhere with me--to track driving schools at Heartland Park in Topeka, KS, Hallett Raceway in Oklahoma, Solo II Nationals competition (always finished last, but had lots of fun), Made it easily to the top of Pike's Peak, several times to St.Louis, more times than I can count to Kansas City, Tulsa and Oklahoma City. We were sorry to see this one go, but we still have a 1987 Tornado Red Jetta GLI, works a lot like the first one.

OOOhh, how fantastic to see this thread, when I am picking my new car up today. Not new, but new to me, I am so excited..BMW X5 I can't wait.

Although, I have very special memories of my little orange and black mini, with bucket seats so people had a job to get into the back.
She flew and stuck to the road like sh1t to a blanket....sigh.

M'lud, my ex always had Mexicos, RS2000s, RSturbo's etc, but was always getting stopped in them. His first was a yellow 1600 sport, she was luvly.

Ooh how exciting ! They are nice cars - they look impressive in Black or Silver imo. 8) Infact, do they actually do them in any other colours ? :?

Must say though, these days the only cars that grab my attention are the seven seater variety - needs must. :mrgreen: Hoping to replace ours in the summer and must say there are so many out there now we are going to be spoilt for choice !

Can we hazard a guess as to which 7 seater you WON'T be choosing :?:

mumof5, she's black, with Sat Nav and a TV :shock:
Sorry I couldn't reply straight back but I had to rush to school,
to collect my daughter, to wash her hair, because a bird had pooed in her hair and all down her sweatshirt. :shock:

Didn't know we had albatrosses in Derby :D

Since I am not in the market for a Porsche, I am perfectly content with my silver Volkswagen New Beetle! I became a fan of VW twenty years ago when I first owned a handsome, charcoal grey, white topped, special Wolfburg edition of the VW Cabriolet.

For an antiquarian car, I'll take a Bugatti any day. Favourite car that my father owned was an old 1.5 litre "Flying" Riley from the nineteen-thirties!
