    A Hyundai Accent? Blimey, it's a wonder you didn't give up on driving there and then!

    Mine was the ubiquitous R-reg 1.2 Corsa, back in June 2000.

    Same here, dark nasty green with quite a bit of torque which made it easier not to stall...

    An 02 plate Renault Clio 1.2 4 years ago, was quite a good car to learn in, very easy to parallel park, but as it was a 3 door, and i am quite a tall chap, it was difficult for me to get into a comfortable driving possition! Still, i only needed 14 lessons before i managed to pass my test in it, so i didn't have to bear it too long.

    I can't remember for sure - it was so long ago. OK, it was 15.5 years ago. I think it was an F reg Ford Fiesta belonging to the driving instructor. Anyway most of my practice driving was in my mum's D reg Polo Coupe S.

    They were a good car in the 1970s, provided you got a 1850 or a Sprint. A pal of mine bought a 1973 L-reg 1850 for £150 when we were students, & we hammered round Edinburgh's cobbled steeets for years, mostly sideways.
