Well I already posted this but my Hijet was my first  cheers I work in film and television and wanted something for moving kit or for sleeping in the back of if I am on location.

When I was 16 I used to have a 50cc 1973 Italian Vespa with no indicators, speedo or ignition just a kick start and some lights Smile

1982 Ford Cortina 2.0 GL MKV.

I had been in the Army a few years and just moved to Germany really and in 1993 I bought it for 500 DM.

I had it for around 18 months, and managed to drive back to the UK about 15 times in it, before it gave up the ghost and died - RIP.

Almost identical to this one [They called them Taunus, not cortina]

Reliant Robin, when I drove it out the show room it kept stalling, salesman just shouted handbrake. He was used to selling them to bikers who were not used to handbrakes.  Very Happy Very Happy

Yoir??? Is that a Scottish term?

First car - 1967 Hillman Imp Californian, drove it for miles even before I passed my test (girlfriend had already passed, that was handy  Wink ). First van I drove was a 1972 Commer PB1500, my dad's, that I learnt to drive in. First van I owned was a Mk 1 Escort, pile of shite.

First car 1967 Sunbeam Stilletto. Not this car, but an old MOT failure the same colour bought for £30. I learnt to drive in this car on the fields & then scrapped it.


First van 1986 Ford Escort. Bought this whilst doing up our first home. Sold it, because it kept getting broken into.

Hovis 1ltr MPV Hijet was my 1st 4 wheel anything.
It was due to a HUGE lack of interest on the "Daihatsu Owners forum" that i started this one, been 5? years now
Smile

I have owned 3 tin cans in my time: Hovis, a Renault for 5 months & back to Smurfy which is my 1.3 MPV Hijet.
