    Back in the 80's as a young apprentice it quickly became evident that transport was essential in this game. Lugging tools around on a bus was not much fun...So as soon as I turned 17 I applied for my provisional licence and took up driving lessons. Passed first time wohoo & for my 18th birthday, I had saved up £55 and purchased my first car. It was Datsun Cherry 100A. cost me £350 to insure it! It had a tendency to overheating. but it was MINE & my pride & joy.

    Vauxhall nova sr. Got it stolen, was used by joyriders for two weeks and the police got it back for me. It was a great car.

    Also had a mk2 escort which my mate rolled and that was the end of that. I bought the mk2 for next to nothing, they are worth alot now.

    Mine was the Yamaha DT125. Liquid cooled I recall.
    Really would have preferred the Honda 4 stroke equivalent and it has a nicer noise

    ugh, I never really bonded with any of my 4 strokes.. currently have a KTM300 2 stroke crosser, awesome and terrifying in equal measure

    Bought a D reg Fiat Panda in 1996 for £800, put a Peco big bore on and handbraked it into some guys garden wall. The wheels locked and I just lost control, it made a right crunch, smash all the front end in. We just pushed it home and scrapped it.

    A mini was my first car, had it when I was 18 for about a year. Passed my driving test 6 years later :)
