What was your first ever vehicle, and who bought it?

Here we will ask questions to see what music we prefer, where we were, etc

1979 Peugeot 504 1800. Kar was geel en is die Kaaswa gedoop. My pa het hom nuut gekoop WAY back en ek is tot vandag toe spyt ek moes hom teruggee. Grondpad gery soos geen ander. Keer op keer 8 studente op 'n slag uit Stellenbosch plaas(Elsenburg) toe vervoer en ook lekker tussen wingerdrye ingepas as ons moes snoei.

RWD en grondpaaie op die plaas kon niemand hom vang gedurende die rally stages oor naweke nie.

Gaan nog weer so een soek. Bull-run materiaal. Ek het hom gekry met 256000km op die klok. en Speedo het so 8 jaar nie gewerk nie. My pa het hom eventually verkoop met 360000km op die klok.

My eerste ryding was Suzki 250 DR, 2de een 400 DR, 3de een was 600 DR. Het toe eers my eerste vierwiel ryding geky en dit was Toyota Hilux 4X4 1994 met 18 R enjin. Het hom 19 jaar gehad. Vir die volgende 10 jaar verskeie Opel Kadett en Monza van my vrou, maar het toe ook 800 DR gekoop. Ry n ou vir die laaste 6 jaar met 2.7 4X4 en het nou die dag vir my BMW F800 GS gekoop. Het almal self gekoop.

I got arrested for driving naked. I guess I shouldn’t have put four wheels, an engine, and a steering wheel on my bathtub.
