my 1st car.
Opel Kadett Cub 1.3 4speed
back in those days you were judged if you had colour coded bumpers and headrests on the seats and a 5 speed gearbox, as well as spotlights, i had none :ROFL:
Bought it for R6500 with 220 000 km on the clock in 1994 (was a 1990 model)
Drove 60 000km a year with it for 3 years at flatout speed in the red line (literally 170km/h) everyday covering the entire western cape as i was a field engineer then.
Only reason i sold it coz i moved to UK back then. Never onced serviced it except oil and oil filter change every 20k km - viva Opel

Toyota tazz. what I really loved about it is that for the period of about 5 years that car never had a mechanical problem.

I remember when back to the future had just come out, and me being young asked my dad innocently, dad, how can the car drive without wheels?

my dad said stop being stupid, cars cant drive without wheels, and then I said that car in the movie could without wheels.
and then I showed my dad somebody had stolen both our wheels on the passenger side, and left the car on bricks.

so from the drivers side it looks okay, but then from the passenger side, both wheels were gone,
and it wasnt like fancy rims or something, ordinary steelies, and standard tires.

This would be my current car. 2006 Corsa C 1.4 Sport. Rear wheel bearings done at 290000km, clutch at 355000km and is currently on 391000km. Super reliable and everything still works and that includes the aircon.

I've only owned 4 cars.
1st - Dawoo Matiz
2nd - Mazda Mx6
3rd - Ford Feista
4th and Last Audi A3

I've got to say it's the Audi A3 is my favourite.
