this sure makes one feel mature. My first car was a 1949-1950 Hillman side valve which I bought in 1957 while I was still in high school.. The motor leaked a little oil and I sold it within a few weeks. Good car to practice driving shrtly after havingt earned my driver's licence.

1978 Dodge Colt, which was a Mitsubishi in disguise. Had it for a year until it threw a rod bearing, then picked up a '77 Volkswagen Rabbit. Kept that car until it was just not worth fixing anymore, and then picked up an '86 Pontiac Sunbird. Hung onto that for a couple years, then bought a '95 Pontiac Firefly. Got married, wife got pregnant, and we decided we needed something bigger. So we got a new '98 Saturn SL, and kept it until 2002 when we needed more space for our 2nd child - and got a Pontiac Montana SE. Now that the kids are old enough that we don't cart around strollers and crap like that, we got the '05 Kia Spectra5. It's been very good to us so far - almost 2 months on the clock now. By far the least problematic vehicle in the first couple months I've ever owned - not one problem yet. :-)

Wow, now THAT is a list! And I know ALL to well about having kids an small cars.. The talon (which is two doors) could NEVER be a family car. LOL the Optima.. just the right fit! Plenty of room and comfort. Next on the list? Quite possible.. the Amanti.. heh.. either that or I might look into the BMW 3 Series. But that's not for a ways. We'll see what happens.

My first car was a 1992 Chevy Cavalier RS 2.2L. I bought it with 111k on it. I thought it would never last but i beat the crap out of it anyways. I think it was the best car GM ever built. When i finally parted with the Cavalier I got a 1991 Olds Cutlass Supreme 3.1L which had half That car has cost me a fortune in repairs (expecially the first week) but i still have it. When i got married I started drive my wifes 1996 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2.4L. That thing was a piece too, I made her trade it in on our new Optima. :P

OK another British classic was mine, 1958 Singer Gazelle had an overhead cam 1600 motor, I bought it in about 1972 I think, then a new mini clubman, then a 1966 MG Midget (wish I still had that one), then a Morris Marina TC Coupe (for my sins), an Austin Allegro (dear God), and so it's gone on all sorts of stuff from Fords to Holdens (General Motors Australia equivalnet of Vauxhall). Currently driving a 97 Mazda Astina V6 and a 98 Nissan Mistral 4WD while awaiting the new Kia.

Ford Fiesta Newport, the most annonymous car in the world!


Ha ha, what a brilliant comment! That is such a random name for a special edition.... targeted for people on the Isle of Wight????

My first car was and is a KIA Picanto SE, most happy with it!
