This week We were looking back at some old EBC Brake photos and brochures from 'days gone by' which then got us talking about the first vehicles we all owned (some of these can be seen in our new 'Taking a Break' YouTube series Taking a Brake with the EBC Team | Episode 1: Group CEO, James Hallett - YouTube

So, the question We have is what was the first vehicle you owned and what was so special or, not so special about it?
Was there anything 'quirky' about it? Did it have a name? Did you do any special upgrades to it?

We would love to see photos of your first vehicle and will be sending some free EBC goodies (Cap, Mug, Pen, Lanyard, you know the sort of things!) to a randomly selected forum user.

Get searching for those old photos in those attics/lofts/garages/under parent's beds or just on your phone or computer if you are from the younger generation.

We can't wait to see what you all used to drive, and I am sure occasionally push!

My first car was a Renault GT Turbo Raider with the colour coded wheels. No real modifications to be done so kept it standard, which in those days was more than enough. I wish I still had it as it would have made me a small fortune......

My first was a 1966 VW type 1 (Beetle). Nothing really 'special' about it. and I didn't have it very long before a drunk t-boned me and totalled it. I may be the only person who ever had their car totalled by a Chevette! My next cars were cheap rustbuckets, bought for no more than $250 each; a 1972 VW, a 1970 Ford Maverick, a 1969 Chevy Chevelle coupe, and a 1962 Ford F100 pickup.

Then I bought my first 'real' car; a 1978 Honda Civic coupe. Man, I loved that car! Wish I'd kept it when the motor went and repaired it. You just don't see them these days...

My first car was a pickup truck. 64 Chevy C10 with a three speed on the column, AKA three on the tree. It was my dads retired plumbing truck. The first new car I ever bought when I got a job out of College was a 1984 EXP Turbo Coupe manual. They didn't make very many of them and for good reason...
