My First Car

This is a post I have been meaning to wrote for a while but kept forgetting and also wanted to get my car washed before taking pictures of it.

This is my first car, my little yellow banana car which has been named 'Mater' as in the tow truck from Cars. This is because Lil's loves cars and originally wanted to call it lightening McQueen ha ha. 


For my first car I wanted a reliable, clean car yet not have to pay to much for it and not be too expensive to run. I kept saving and kept looking and finally came across a few. Most had gone by the time I got there but this one was still available. 

It came with a folder for of history and has only had one owner from new before me. It has been looked after and was just a cute little car that would suit me. 

I check the insurance before even asking to look at the car, luckily it is a very reasonable price and with a good company too. It is so cheap to run with a full tank being only £20 and only being a town run around really it doesn't use a lot of petrol. 

I absolutely love my little car and and so glad I finally don't have to rely on buses anymore. I just can't believe its my car sometimes, I think it's where I have been waiting for so long to be a driver.

What was your first car?

  6. I never got to drive my first car. I bought an old banger and by the time I had passed my test it didn't drive anymore. :) x

  7. My first car was a 1993 Vauxhall Corsa and it was 13 years old when I bought her. She cost me £800 and had one previous owner. I loved her, then a few months later a really horrible man crashed into me and wrote my poor Lucy off. Still to this day I am angry with that man, that was 10 years ago haha Enjoy your first car, she's a cutie.

  8. I had 3 cars before I had passed my test. I bought two of them for my mum to drive us around in whilst I was learning (never 2 at same time) I had a Ford KA then a Hyuandi Amica SI, then a Vauxhall corsa that was 10 years old, then a Ford Fiesta. Now we have a Range Rover.

  9. That is a great little spunky car for you and the family. I love the color and the name. How cute? Mater. What a great reference, I am glad you went with it -- fun for the kids! In addition, looks perfect for a first car and a great price. Thank goodness it does not take much for petrol!
