    My first boyfriend's car was a Ford Capri, I really loved it and thought I was so special having a bf with a car. I can't believe someone put sand in the petrol tank of the Triumph Spitfire. How mean!

    My husband had a Spitfire too, I like to remind him we wouldn't all fit in nowadays! Love the Reliant too, we saw one the other day, my son thought it was broken as it only had 3 wheels! 😀

    Hi Anne, oooOOooo you lucky lady, being driven around in a Spitfire! My Uncle only ever drove a Robin Reliant (manky brown in colour) as he could drive it on a provisional licience, I bet my Aunt would have much preferred the Spitfire!

    Kip was a car and a half! I need one like that as I hate driving, but Herbie has to have been my favorite car from the 80's or was that earlier. Herbie was a cheeky car with plenty of sass!

    I think Herbie was earlier because I remember him from my childhood, I love the old fashioned VW Beetles though and Herbie was the original 'Love Bug' x

    I remember a friend at school said his dream car was a TR7, they did look pretty fancy back then. Unfortunately our only other Triumph was a Dolomite, not fancy at all!

    Oh wow, a Spitfire. My 80's were spent in my Dad's cavalier! I think that I was a late developer when it came to caring about cars
