    Oooh Cortina! My old man bought a brand new Mk 1 back in the day and promptly got a fast road cam and head installed.
    Yes he's still a boy racer even at 80 years old, he's got a Carerham 7 with a full race all steel 1700 crossflow and he's just bought himself a Porche!!!!!
    I'm having a blast in that at the weekend;)

    WOW, they're both impressive vehicles for an 80 year old, most at that age are rocking a mobility scooter, way to go BFG's dad:)

    I knew we were related.. LOL.. I had a Subaru Brat (Same vehicle) as my second car.. First one was a 1970 Cutlass Supreme with a 350 Rocket in it.. later upgraded to a 455 and better suspension to haul that beast. :)

    Defrost rarely worked so most days I'd drive to school with my face bundled up sticking out of the sky light or side window:)

    It actually made it past the safety glasses when I was slathering it on with a cloth.. Thankfully I keep water nearby at all times when working with caustic chemicals and I put on a face shield afterwards. :)

    Love the first car pics guys, just waiting for misterS to come along and trump us all, I'm imagining his first car to be as awesome as all his other stuff, a 67' Mustang Fastback maybe:)

    No picture tho but I'll jump on the first car thread here too: although if you follow this google link you'll find the car model I'm talking about: google.com/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=qmuJVObWLMzH8gfy_ICoDQ&gws_rd=ssl#q=vw+golf+ii

    Since I'm a tad bit younger then some of you I owned my first car in 1998, it was dark blue 1991 VW Golf model II with diesel engine with some internal features of the model III since it was one of the last ones made in the model II frame. Drove it for 7 years after retiring it to the holy motorways. Currently I'm still with the 2nd car a Toyata Yaris again diesel from 2005 (which is my first brand new car) also in blue but metallic this time around and less dark. And hoping to drive it also to the holy motorways :)

    1989 Red Nissan Sunny Hatchback. I drove that poor old car into the ground, so I thought... Guy bought it off the garage I traded it in to. Garage sales guy told me afterwards, that the new owner brought it back to show them the finished restore and it looked like a new car. :)
