What was your first car?
First car was a second hand beige Nissan Micra – ten years old when I got it. Clapped out. So reliable.
What did you pay for it?
I think I paid £400 for it.
How old were you?
I was 23, I think at the time, so it would have been 1995.
What was the longest trip you ever took in the car?
The first time I took her out, I was so nervous, I drove from Wexford to Rosslare behind a jcb. That was the longest journey ever. Took me three hours, I was afraid to overtake.
How long did you keep your first car?
I kept her for five years I think. I’ve no real negative memories of her. A reliable ride so she was.
