Ford Popular - My first Car image
Article excerpt: 1968 saw the arrival of my first car, a Ford Popular of indeterminate age. Well actually, I picked it up from my brother, whom I had given twenty-five pounds to, which at that time represented about four weeks wages for me. It looked great, once your eyes got past the small dents in the sides, the dull green paintwork and worn leather seats. I was as happy as "Larry," as I raced through the lanes and small roads back to my home at the scary speed of just over twenty miles an hour, a rare old speed for me in those days.
