Midnight blue MK2 ford Escort 1.3 with white rostyle wheels with polished aluminium trims. Can't remember the model, it wasn't the poverty spec but not a high spec either. Bloody awful drive with a fierce clutch and poor fuel economy.

Bedford CA van , old Birmingham Post and Mail delivery van . Been round the clock once but would cruise at 70'all day. Only bought the van so I could transport my Trials and Clubman Racer to events. I fitted town and country tyres and it would go anywhere.

First car driven was a Ford cortina mk4  2 litre ghia. I was naughty and drove it all over on my provisional licence. 

First car after passing my test was a 1979 opel kaddet coupe, I sprayed it cardinal red and put a white go faster stripe over the bonnet and roof

White Vauxhall Viva registered  in 1965 and bought about 1968, I can even remember the registration number of this car (CWM 34C)  but not more recent cars

Took it to Esthwaite in the lakes for a fishing day and chassis snapped when four of us got in it to come home. All passengers sat in the opposite side to come home .

First car was a Wolseley 15/50 bought between 4 of us for 20 pds after a party. We drove straight to Wales for the weekend after I had got a cover note 3rd party.

Car lasted 3 days before we wrecked it. God bless the 1970 s .
