    Congrats Ann

    First cars are very exciting .. I bought a battered well-worn Ford Fiesta (10 yrs old at the time) but it was mine and I loved it!!!

    I hope you have lots of fun and excitement with your new car. And don't worry if you don't get a reply quickly as there's not many online during the night.

    Hi,

    Congratulations on the new car. I know just how you feel. I passed my test in 1986, and have always driven, but first it was parents car, then when I got married family car (which was really more my husbands as he used it for work)
    Just after Christmas after a bit of nagging (and 21 years) I have my own car. It is a black Ford Ka and gorgeous- well worth the wait. My sons call it The Egg or Egg on Wheels, but are still happy to have a lift in it.

    I think there is something nice about 1st cars also.

    Mine was a Vaxuhall Viva, which had more plaster filler on the body work than metal. I'm sure it wouldn't be roadworthy by todays standards.

    Although I had no real interest in cars then and still don't, I do remember that car with some fondness. Or is it for what you get up to in it when you are a teenager. Who knows, it was so long ago, who can remember that far back.
    I can remember at the time thinking it looked like the type of car Jack Reagan in the Sweeney cop show would have driven :eek::eek:

    Awwwwwwww thats annoying.

    I just got my own first car too!!!

    It's a little P reg Nissan Micra Vibe. Kinda metallic yellow....... It's called Peg, or The Peg.

    I think Peg is sick though...she makes funny rattly noises just now...taking her into the garage tomorrow. Poor Peg.

    Hope you get a car sorted soon!!
