It was a 1977 Lightweight Landrover, I hammered it round the Desert, loved it but it broke down loads and the fuel tank leaked a lot and that was placed under the front seats... shocked.gifGood thing I never smoked as a youngster.

In 1997 also, I had a white 1.2 1987 Nova "Antibes". Me and my pal both had them, mine was a E plate, his a D tongue.gif. He had a cherry bomb on his!!

Ah man, it brings back memorys thinking about that. One of them was when we were in the 6th form at school and he'd chucked a McDonalds ketchup at my car. To pay him back I took a big bottle of mustard from the school canteen (when he was in a lesson and I was on a free period) and blitzed his motor with it!! Those were the days...

My first car was a 1997 Jaguar XJ8 3.2 V8 smile.gif

I learned to drive when I was old... and after passing drove cars officially "owned" by my wife before I could afford to get my own insurance and 2nd car smile.gif

I had a 1983 MK1 Astra GTE as my first car in 1991, was spot on until i rolled it 3 times in early 1992 and ended it's life prematurely frown.gif

Best bit was the insurance back then, it was £234 for 8 months TPF&T. Still 4 weeks wages for an apprentice then though....

My Viva was a new mark than that one - HC I think??

[/ QUOTE ]

Yes would have been a HC. Mine was a 1968 HB (same age as me!!) Was a great car, bought it for £70, drive it miles with little bother then sold it for £135 six months later!

Mate of mine had a HA Viva! 1964 I think. Used to thrash his to death too and it kept on going. They don't make 'em like they used to (thankfully!)
