They Wernt Classics So Now They R So Old They Arnt Worth A Look At These Days — This was my first car so I loved it like every 1 does with their first. It had a great exhaust noise that nade u feel that u were going quicker than u were, It had no mod cons with it and what I loved was the foot pump by the pedels for the windscreen washer, u dont get cars like that anymore. It wasnt too slow eather for what it was, no cat cause of its age and no rev limiter eather so it screamed in to gear and went up to 85mph but felt like 150mph, it brings back good times as any first car should.

Pros: U will never get that real driving feeling in a medern car

Cons: rust and age now it was an old car years ago when I had it.

Good Car For The Price To Drive — the color will knock your socks off (lime green)-has real good pick and doesn't rust out like the newer ones do.This car is not for dating purposes!!This car will handle the snow with no problem at all up to 12 inches.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: great gas millege

Cons: hard to find parts for

'81 Fiesta — Car belongs to my Dad, I first learnt to drive in her. Bought by my dad approx 5 years ago of eBay of all places! Used to belong to an ex-RAF mechanic who never took anywhere! When we picked it up it was still rolling on the original '81 tyres! No visible signs of rust, car used to be waxoiled regularly. Originally produced in 1977 the Fiesta was Fords first front wheel drive and was built in response to a fuel crisis. Therefore ecomy on the car is fantastic! This Fiesta was built in the Spanish factory as opposed to Dagenham, meaning the bodywork is less prone to rust.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A car thats over 25 years old in showroom condition, what more could you ask for!

Cons: None!

I Miss This Car So Much, It Was Like A Go-kart, So Low To The Ground, Fast Accellerating, Etc. — Awesome car, used to call it 'the roller skate', it looked cool, was low to the floor (so it seemed like you were going faster than you really are, lol), fast accelerating (for a 957cc lol), shame it rusted away.

Pros: Looks cool, performs well, awesome car.

Cons: So old, rust protection wasn't at the top of the list in those days (cheap cars, die, buy a new one). So if you don't have a garage to keep it in, the chassis will get car cancer (rust away) and it will go to the big carpark in the sky.

First Car Loved It! — Rust bucket on wheels not worth the insurance money-only 1 break working rolled backwards with handbrake on- super!

Pros: 1st car-couldn't be fussy for £250

Cons: fell apart
