I'm 55 but what is more slightly unusual is my wife owned a modded Evo VII which we sold to buy the GTR and she now has my Evo IX GT which runs 530bhp, her age is 56!

I'm 30 but turning 31 in 2 months. Really chuffed I can finally own (what I consider to be) an iconic car at such tender age! Insurance is still a killer for me though...

There's IS a 19 year old driving R35 (on PH) but I think his dad bought him the car and insured it under his dad's name.

I feel sorry for him. He will never get the feeling from going from a shit box to something nice. Everyone should spent some time in a piece of crap.

Mine was a Renault 9 GTL, in red/brown. Even the registraion said CAK. The seats didnt slide back and forth, and the back didnt adjust. It just swung on a pivot, so It was look at the roof , or look at the floor.

True, but he wont have the massive gap to bridge.

Didn't realise this was turning into a "my first car" thread

Morris Marina 1.3 - definitely a crock, but rwd and pram wheels made it fun in it's own way! I "upgraded" to a 1.8 twin carb shortly after
