MY FIRST CAR WITH CARFAN
- THE Mini Clubman
We are starting a new year with a new format for the Carfan
column - one that centres around "firsts", be they first car owned,
first car to reach 100 m.p.h. (or even 200 m.p.h.), first car to
include seat belts for example.
To this effect, our
Editor has called
first dibs to regale
us about his first car
which was a Mini
manufactured in 1973,
the colour was known
as Teal blue and it
must have looked
quite striking as this
particular shade is still
available - providing
you purchase an
Aston Martin DB11 and
very attractive it is too.
Editor Julian followed in the footsteps of Carfan by passing his
driving test first time after only a handful of lessons and as two
close family members had previously owned Minis, he felt confident
enough to make it three but wanted something a little different and
the Clubman fitted the bill with its rectangular front end, being a
facelift of the original, ground-breaking Mini.
First cars usually evoke fond memories and this example is no
exception, so with a few hundred pounds and a teenager's desire
for independence the Clubman became a much-loved part of
the family, seeing him through Polytechnic and providing reliable
transport around the country in fair weather and fowl and never
letting him down.
Personalisation came in the shape of seat covers and floor mats and
one stand out memory was getting used to the correct use of the
"choke". Younger readers may have to look this up for clarity as it is
seldom seen in a car today due to motoring advances.
Despite water ingress through the door freezing in the footwell, this
vehicle retains a special place in Julian's heart and if he ever sees
one he needs to remember the Carfan wave!
