What was your first car and why did you buy it? My first car was a 1999 Blue Opel Corsa. I bought it with my first pay cheque from my first “real” job, straight after college. I wanted a Corsa as that’s what I was used to, having learned to drive in one, and was terrified of driving a car that wasn’t familiar to me – which is funny now that I’m in and out of different cars all the time with work. What did you pay for...
