1972 Beetle.

It never died.
It just kept on going.
It was eventually sold -not because there was anything wrong with it- for more than it was bought.
^this, mine was a bashed up farked rust bucket, could see the road beneath your feet:D the windows weren't sealed in anymore, so rain pissed through... but somehow it kept going and going

I had a car very similar to rpm's one. A four-speed, 1300 POS Golf that gave me more uphills that anything else.

The only pic I could find is one from when a mate of mine and myself went to Boknes to go visit some friends there - can't remember why my mate was chasing one of the girls with his plakkies though :crylaugh:

1967 Mini 1000S. Paid £500 for it at the time. Fitted radial-ply tyres which made the handling and roadholding even better. Was amazingly economical fuel-wise

Opel Corsa 1.3L Bakkie

At 21 years of age in 1997, I bought myself my first car, a brand new Opel Corsa 1.3L bakkie at R56K (Before digital photos were really in, so I have no easy accessible picture.) :crylaugh:

1964 VW Type 3 Notch Back 1600cc, bought second hand in 1969 for R400 with 40k Km on the clock.
Had it for over 200 k Km and it had it's life ended against a horse after I sold it.
This was in my youth as a 21 year old, we had a jolly good time with it.

Sorry for the bad black and white pictures.
