When I was 17 (before I even had my driver's license) I was on a bus on the way home from volunteering at the RSPCA. I spotted a Hillman Minx on the side of the road with a sign on it's window. It was for sale, only a grand! I had the money to buy this thing but didn't on my mum's advice. I didn't even have my license, this little car had a bit of rust and needed a bit of work to get it running again. I don't regret much but not buying that Hillman Minx is one of the things I do!
I drive a 97 Mazda which I bought last year. As much as I love my little Astina (who is in car hospital at the moment as she needs a new radiator) I still yearn for my classic car. I search about every now and then even though I no longer have the money - this time I found a Minx that is in mint condition. I'm starting work soon so let's hope I save enough money and the repairs on my existing car aren't too expensive so I can call her my own!
