In my 1st car - 1947 Mk IV Jaguar - bought it for £50 in 1962, fairly cheap but the engine needed work. It would be worth a few bob now!

12 point turn on any narrowish roads! :roll:
Beautiful inside and out though and was great as a youngster to (legally) get her up to over a ton on the M1. :)

Passed in 1978 in my Grandads old 1969 Austin 1300 with a strip-speedo. It had a red strip that went from left to right instead of round dials.

I Googled strip speedo. Wish I hadn't.

Nissan Micra - it was rank. My instructor gave me a brand new one to take my test in which was an updated model than the one i'd done all of my learning in! I wasn't impressed!

My driving school car was so uninteresting in comparison, it's not even worth a picture - Mk3 Ford Fiesta (diesel), circa 1994.

1981 Toyota Corolla saloon...I remember it being pale metallic blue, with a blue interior - tasteful :D

The instructor was so confident I would pass (2nd time!) that he dropped heavy hints about how his grateful pupils often bought him a bottle of whisky - yeah right, like that was ever going to happen, especially as I was still reeling from him putting up the lesson cost from £4.50 to £5 :-o

May 1981 in a 1974 Ford Cortina 2000E. First time om my 17th birthday. I do believe passing your test was easier back then. Passed my motorcycle licence in 1982 and my class 2 in 1999.
