Thanks for the memories
I’ve been a reader of CCW for many years now and never fail to drift back through the years of my life and remember the cars I’ve owned.
Since I first became interested in cars at the age of 13, I’ve owned 44 vehicles. I’m now 65 and retired.
My first job was working at our small village garage during evenings and weekends straight from school, and then full-time from the age of 15.
I got my first car around the age of 14 and learned to drive around our little field at home. From then on I just couldn’t get enough of cars, engines and all that goes with these old cars. They all had their own character – some good, some not so good – but I loved them all.
I wish that I’d kept registration numbers and photos, but I haven’t much to show, just memories.
All the cars – from a 1940s Standard Flying 14 to a 1990s MGF – were daily drivers. I wish that I could see them all lined up neatly in a huge workshop, and each with their current value.
