Passed my test on the 11th November 1996 aged 17.

My first car was a Vanden Plas Allegro that was given to me as payment for fitting a CD changer into a Mk2 Jaguar.

SHIT! I've been driving for 10 years now!!!!! :eek:

Passed Sept 2004, first time!

Remeber the day well, was off college for the day, only had a half lesson before and straight to test. Drove a shit old Austin Metro, the gears crunched everytime i out it in reverse (Got 2 strokes for that). Regardless, passed anyway!!

Got home, had a cup of tea, had a poo, jumped in my Mk 1 Ford Fiesta 950CC, put 3 quid of petrol in and drove to my mates playing Oasis - Live forever on tape.

Drove everywhere after that, clocked up 18,000 miles in 6 months.

I passed in Oct 1994, drove my mums F-reg Escort for a while, until she got p!ssed off that it was never there when she wanted to use it, and then bought a 1.6 cavalier. Bought my Type 2 shortly after that, but only use it in the summer months. Now got my beetle too, hopefully will be my daily when I have fixed it up a bit.

February 10th, 1991, when I was 17 :D

First car was a Mini - bought it when I was 16 as a rotten mustard-coloured wreck and rebuilt it with my Dad into this:



Mine is the one on the right. That photo was taken two weeks after I'd passed my test, it's Moel Famau in North Wales :D We drove over the top and down, coming from behind the sign - the weather had closed in whilst we were enjoying a flask of coffee on the top :D

The one on the left belonged to Road Rally Mk1 on here :D

Edit: Ooh I found another pic:



Same day, somewhere in North Wales :lol:
