Yes - 1948 Morris 8. Black.

I was given it when it failed it's MOT and I learnt a lot about cars with it. But I never put it back on the road...

My first car on the road was a grey Mini. 1962 model, I think... I got it in 1969.

I got my 1st car, when I was about 20 or 21, in 1963 or 1963.

It was a 1938 Morris 8.

It had a fold down, luggage rack, on the back, & a sliding roof.

The roof was useless, so, I paneled it over, & painted the whole car.

One running board had to be replaced, also.

The semaphore indicator arms were faulty.

I bought a set of 4 flashers, from Halfords, & fitted them.

I had 1 fun camping trip, up to the Isle of Skye, with it, before I sold it.

It was 2 tone black & maroon.

It also had a hand, starting handle, on the front.

I remember perfectly well. A 1963 Black and White Triumph Herald 1200cc. The car cost me £65.00 and cost me £90.00 to insure the fucker!!

Car insurance was still a rip-off back in those days as well!

Austen Maestro. Nice red colour 100% reliable and no rust which was unusual but I did look after it washed and polished every week. I missed it after I traded it in for another car because the newer car I bought I had nothing but trouble with it.

My first car, when I was 23, was a 1935 Morris 8, BUU 930, which I bought from an Oxford Boat Race Coach, then living up the road from me in Coventry. I didn't have to take any driving lessons because I had previously had a Bond Minicar 3 wheeler, without means of reverse and with a column gear change. All I had to do was practice reversing which I did at night with my father sitting beside me as the competent driver. Which was something of a laugh as he obtained his licence in the 20's when no test was necessary to get one and had never driven a car in his life! I passed first time even though some burke drove into me at a T junction during my test. Which was annoying as I'd already done my emergency stop!

Ford Classic 1500 4 door, bought it as a scrapper for £35 intending to put it on the road. It didn't happen. First car I could actually use was a 1965 Minivan HAB 941C. The driver's floor was a polished steel nameplate stolen by someone (not me) off I.C.I's West Bank power station gates. Writing facing up, some idiot didn't think that one out very well.

1946 Rover 14, with "Roverdrive", a sort of pre-select semi-automatic gearbox. leather seats, walnut dash, 17" wheels, front opening windscreen etc.

Reg HLP 109, grey.

Bought it in 1962 for £25 which the dealer allowed me to pay in 5 weekly installments of £5. Was a petrol shortage at the time, and he just wanted to get rid of it.

A good one now will fetch up to £15,000

1985 Mk3 Ford Escort XR3i in red. Only 105bhp, if I remember rightly, but quite lightweight compared to a modern car. Seemed fast at the time, but now my standard 2 litre diesel is quicker to 60. It had over 100k miles on the clock, when I scrapped it, but many repairs and part replacements over the years.

I think it was a Vauxhall Victor built in the 50s. It had a front windscreen that wrapped around the sides and you could bump your knees gtting in and out.

I then had a couple of big bullnose vauxhalls and one, a Cresta I think, that looked american with wings at the back.

I bought a Bedford van which didnt run and had it parked up for a couple of years using it as a love nest!

"I got my 1st car, when I was about 20 or 21, in 1963 or 1963.

It was a 1938 Morris 8.

It had a fold down, luggage rack, on the back, & a sliding roof.

The roof was useless, so, I paneled it over, & painted the whole car.

One running board had to be replaced, also.

The semaphore indicator arms were faulty.

I bought a set of 4 flashers, from Halfords, & fitted them.

I had 1 fun camping trip, up to the Isle of Skye, with it, before I sold it.

It was 2 tone black & maroon.

It also had a hand, starting handle, on the front."

I currently have a 1936 Morris 8. Black and blue. Nice little car, though it's yet to get all the way up to Scotland!

Apart from the "AC Petite" 3 wheeled with two stroke engine and belt driven gear box (I remember the registration) in 1965 I bought a Morris Minor 850 side valve registered in Jan 1950 They only came out in the autumn of 1949 so was one of the first. I could decoke it in half an hour! But I ran it into the ground and scrapped it in favour of a Morris 1000 Traveller, my dream car of today. Just as well i scrapped the first one as the back seat could have told many an embarrassing tale!
