Never been one for cars really, had a couple of Fords, 3 Peugeots, a Mazda 6 and currently have a Skoda Superb sportline which is an absolutely brilliant car.

I passed my test in June this year, but I'm not as young as that makes me sound!;

Best car I've had, Nissan Micra.
Worst car I've had, Nissan Micra.
Only car I've had, Nissan Micra.
Like you I passed my test not that young, I was 40. My first car was an Austin Metro (?), Rover Metro x 2 , Vauxhall Corsa and Astra and currently Nissan Juke. I loved them all even though I’m not really a car person.

Learnt in a Ford Fiesta.
First car was a Renault Twingo
From then on I've had a Renault Clio, VW Polo, Mini Cooper D 5dr, Mini Countryman and back to a Mini Cooper D 5dr.

Feel bad because my current car colour is Orange but lets be clear its not a B*******l Orange its a burnt orange.
I went to the club shop and bought a PNE keyring to help redeem myself when I got it last month

Me neither.

First car was a perfectly acceptable Corsa which I drove up to Chesterfield from Herts on the day I bought it from my ex-gf (1 nil Greegs).

Next was a Golf which was great until I started to fall asleep at the wheel.

I can vouch for the new Peugeot 3008 from the passenger seat.

My favourite was my Uncles Car that you could stick your head out of the roof, and had those Left or Right arm Signal things that let you know which way they were turning!. Circa `62-64.

And yes, I don`t have a clue about cars as I`ve never bothered to take a test ( should have done TBH).

I did have FAB1 and loads of other Matchbox cars when young though ;).

Anyway I digress, sorry.
