Your First Car

Recommended Posts

Mine was a Brown Coloured Austin Allegro. 

My wee pride and joy. 

Got me to my work and back in Kilmarnock sometimes. 

Wrote it off, rear ending a Jehovah Witnesses Car on Corkerhill Road, in 1984.

Circumstances of crash meant I was not at fault. 

Moved onward and upwards with my next vehicle. 

Royal Blue Morris Marina Estate.

Morris 1100. Had it for 3 months, then it fail it's MOT.  :(

Bought a Vauxhall Viva HB.

Still had my 1100 which I took to North Street Motor for the guy to try a flog it for me. Think it was still there after he moved on years later. :)

I think it's because when the rozzers pulled you over back then the first question they asked was if you knew the reg number, presumably to check if you'd nicked it. So the first thing I did when I got a new motor was to memorise that.
