I was a late starter to the driving game compared to my peers. I started driving lessons when I was 17 but I got hit by a car speeding with no lights on ( in the dark ) and well It knocked my confidence in driving and I stopped- even though id paid for a block of 10 I just couldn’t do it but after years of catching buses and then getting myself a little moped and the coldest ever winter( going work at 7am) Id had enough.
Id worked all summer at a scout camp in America in 2002 and this gave me a huge savings pot so as soon as I got home I 1st checked out the insurance costs eeekkk so my first car was an old E reg red polo a few months later I got the car in April. My poor dad even took me for some driving lessons in my first car.
I passed my test on Friday 13th so its not unlucky for some at all.
oh the happy memories I have in my first car. It gave me such freedom, been quite ill I couldn’t walk far, with out getting tired. So my first car gave me a whole new life. Alas the head gasket blew which cost a fortune to replace, so my baby had to go. I really loved that car and would love to know what happened to it but im guessing it was sold for scarp.
