What was your first car?
Fresh from the test centre, I bought this early 100E Anglia ('54 maybe?) for a couple of hundred quid. Leaking fuel tank, vacuum-operated wipers that stop on hills, three speed box (with no second gear), more rust than metal.
Whitewall flaps and a radio cassette made it a (snail-like) cruiser. A fragrant whiff of petrol and pomade followed me into every nightclub in north London.
I've never loved a car so much.
