Just read the IronDukes thread about motors and it brought back memories of all the shit-heaps I used to own. Coincidently, my first car was an Austin Princess 2, 500 quid, undoubtedly one of the ugliest cars ever made. Not content with its hideousy, or its reliability, I then part-exed it for the second ugliest car ever made, the Ausin Maxi, for 800 quid. After growing out of puberty, I discovered that a car was just as important for pulling burds as the meat n 2 veg, and therefore, I purchased an old LHD Golf 1 GTI. Imagine my disappointment 2 years later, that I was still a virgin. I was posted to Germany, and loans were cheap, but after 2 weeks of being in BAOR, I found myself having no coffee with the CO. 21 days later, I bought a fucked-out rusty Opel Kadett SRE (?). I drove this until the drivers seat was almost through the floor and decided to ask Joe, the friendly bank-manager in Mansergh Bks to lend me 15000 DM. I then bought an all singing VW Golf 1 Cabriolet, full Kamei body-kit, lowered 50mm, twin square headlights, lo-profils on alloys, on leaving HMF I had to sell her. Its my favourite car still. Inbetween this, I ve had a Mini Mayfair, an Opel Manta, an Opel Kadett E, a VW Polo, Opel Zafira, Opel Frontera, a Honda Jazz, an Audi S3 and now drive a nice German motor. The worst out of them all, looks aside, was the Frontera, 2 tonnes of steel powered by 100bhp just doesnt work. The best car is the Golf Cabriolet, and the one I drive now. I wish I d had half as many wimmin as cars. What was your first shit-heap?
