What got you into cars?

Post by MissLeighMcKay on Wed Aug 12, 2015 10:50 am

I had this question come up on the RSUK facebook page and I wondered why all of you lot got into cars.

For me, I got into cars as soon as I was sat down on the floor and given a car mat and the little cars. I was also given micro machines as a kid too.

My mum also used to go down the seafront with my uncle (her brother) for car meets as he could drive and was into cars. I say was...because he drives a Citroen C3 now and has given up his life of nice cars.

i honestly couldn't say, from as early as i can remember its always been about cars for me, i think my dad working for fords had something to do with it but whats weird is im the only one in my family to not work an office job, and to have any mechanical or electrical knowledge (even before school)
so some strange third influence coming in from somewhere putting me on the path i'm on haha

I got into speed when my old man took me out in his bosses at the time brand new SLK must have been around 8 years old. I fell in love with the feeling if being pinned back in your seat from acceleration. But I didn't really get that into cars until I crashed my first car which I had to then strip out for parts so I could make some money back to buy another car that's when I started modifying and caught the bug

Sure it started from when I first watched Fast and Furious (Paul Walker!! RIP) and then I made friends with some car guys, hung about with them while I was in secondary school. Brought Fast Car! Got a modding bug but never had the money and never learnt to bloody drive until I was 25. Used to play passenger and go to cruises in 2010. Now I've finally got my dream car and all my old friends cant be bothered with it no more!!
My parents have never been in to cars much. Mum used to like to write them off quite a bit! Hehe.

I think so. Just I gotta watch cash flow next month or so! And I want to see if I can get someone else to go with me. You need a proper answer by a deadline?
