  7. Mum’s Hillman Minx. I loved that car
    Dad had one of those! BOF 492C. The four of us went round France for two weeks, squished in it. Great fun.
     
  8. Grandpas Florida car 1983 yellow Buick Regal, just like this one. And it looks like it’s in Florida as well. Love those fake spoke hub caps...

    I was in my 20’s tho as couldn’t afford lessons prior to that.

  12. My driving instructor’s Nissan Micra.
    Unfortunately the day before my test someone had driven into the back of it at a roundabout, and so the rear tailgate and bumper had a nice V shaped dent, and the rear window was smashed and replaced with a plastic sheet.
    It didn’t look exactly great when we turned up for the test, and of course all those little ‘markers’ that I’d used to line up on for reversing around a corner were no longer there!

  20. Of course :D
    .....Despite the fact I got the examiner that everyone dreaded; he lived in the same town as me and rumour had it that he never passed anyone from Fordingbridge first time because he didn’t want us ragging around the streets!
