My First Car

My first car in the early 80’s Fiat 127 YKX 863M

It was pretty reliable and rust free. It did have a few troubles – including the head-gasket – but many of them were caused by my abuse.

Note the lack of driver’s side mirror. It had not fallen off, there was never one fitted ! This, and the lack of a heated rear screen, could make seeing behind difficult. I managed to fit a mirror to the quarterlight and someone gave me a heated screen kit and these add-ons made driving a lot safer.

Re: My First Car

I also had a Fiat 127 as my first car. I drove it till it quite literally died. I changed gear exiting a roundabout in Croydon and the stick came away in my hand ! Got a second hand gearbox, but by then it was on the way out. Loved that car I did. The yellow flying flea . Remember it had a casette played and when you ejected it, it shot out like a bullet.
