This will let us all know how old you are!!!!!!:tup:

I learnt in my brother-in-laws Rover 110!!! and Passed in a British School of motoring Mark 1 Escort. And I remember being overtaken by someone and saying to the instructor....'I'll never drive that fast' :shake:....and I meant it!! Now, 35 years later and probably 20 plus speeding points have come and gone....:whistle:...

I bought a 1934 Talbot London when I was 16 1/2 in 1960, to keep me off of motorbikes. As soon as I was 17 I was out with my mates in it and hardly stopped driving. I had one lesson just before my test and took my test in a 105E Anglia. I've always liked them since.
