Oh boy, this is a fun one…
The first car I remember sitting in the back of was a silver Mazda Mx-6???
I was too young to remeber what it looked like or weather it was good or not. It had some water temperature issues but apart from that it wasn’t so bad. After that we had a Ford KA
Again, I was a bit young to remeber but I remember it made an absolute racket when the exhaust fell of one!
The next car was a blue Renault Scenic, like this
It had beige cloth seats, but the thing we all remember it for was when we went to a safari, and the monkeys got on the car. I remember one got his “you know what” out by the wing mirror and another hitched a ride on the back. We tried to get it away by spraying the windscreen washer on it, but it just ended up licking the windscreen washer like it was some ice cream that had just melted on the cone.
The next car I sat in the front with my Mum AND Dad. Yes… It’s the famous Fiat Multipla, a silver one with blue seats
Do you remeber the Top Gear episode with the Rover “James” and it ended up leaking out when Clarkson, Hammond and the old ladies were driving? Well it turns out this was not an exclusive feature of the “James”. I remeber going down to Legoland and getting a free shower hahahaha!
The next one I didn’t have room to sit in the back of, so I sat in the front. The Mitsubishi Colt
Basically this was a much more fun version of the Mirage we see today. It did good fuel milage, was nippy, and was my Mum’s favourite of the bunch. However, the thing we all remeber it for was when she totaled it into the back of a Yorkshire Tiger bus on a autumn evening
After that, my Mum bought a black Ford C-Max
It was terrible in every way. It had leather seats, cool, but too cool. It was freezing in winter because the heated seats broke. We also ended up getting lost in Leeds because the sat nav broke. If everything worked, it would have been a very nice car, but evrything was broke, so we sent it back after about 1 week or something.
Next was the most generic car you could possibly buy. A base model black Ford Fiesta
There was that one time the windscreen broke, but that’s all that happened. My Dad ended up selling it to his employers when he left the job, so I still see this rolling around town sometimes, which is really weird.
After that (and my Mums current car) is the Peugeot 3008
Despite what everyone says about French cars, this has been going strong for quite a while now. It has climate control, which still works, a sat nav, which still works (although you can’t put in addresses which is a bummer) and it’s a bit sluggish but it does it’s job.
But this isn’t the last car we bought. Here’s my car (when my driving license comes it’s been nearly a month and I can’t get a provisional)
Ok I’m not that cool, heres my real car
A red Kia Cee’d. Yes I chose the red because I am SICK of black cars. I haven’t driven it yet, but from what I can tell it seems to be pretty underpowered, overloaded with unessacary technology (typical 2021 car), and has the dreaded electric handbrake. But who knows, I might love it, or end up driving off a cliff in frustration
Edit: Oooh I forgot the mention the first car I sat behind the wheel of. I may not have a driving license, but when I was 11 my Mum bought me some driving experience around an old airfield. It was a black Audi R8
I only had a few minutes driving it, but I remeber it so well because I had the time of my life pretending I was Michael Schumacher or Fernando Alonso, although I only got up to 50 mph and drove it for 12 miles, it’s a car which has a special place in my heart and is an honourable mention.
