Been driving since 1984 and during that time
Austin 1300
Fiesta
Metro
Matiz
Honda Civic
And now.....Hyundai i10 as pictured.

My favourite was my very first one, the Austin 1300, lovely little car with bags of character. Very smooth drive too.

We had an Alpha Romeo Spider soft top at one time . My main memory of it was driving back from my parents in Northumberland on the A1 with eldest son. "Do a ton,Mum" he said. So I did and the soft top collapsed in (suction).
Otherwise mostly Fords. I needed a car for work and the LA gave a good loan scheme for buying a car. But only something very plain and functional.

My favourite car was a berry coloured Peugeot 108 which I bought a couple of years ago from new. When I bought a touring caravan I had to trade it in for a 4 x 4. I sold the caravan and car to my son not long after and he is paying me back monthly. In the meantime all I could afford was a bronze Vauxhall Corsa 04 reg, but at 69 it should do me for the rest of my driving life as it had one previous owner and low mileage.
