I started my working life as a hgv mechanic. My first car was a 1955 Rover p4 90. I bought it for fifty pounds in the late 60's. After replacing the brake and fuel pipes and resetting the hand-brake linkages, I got it through the MOT. From then on I had miles of fun with it, Until one day a rear passenger opened the the door on a lane while the car was still moving and severely creased the door. I then lost interest in it and did a swap for a van. Now that I am retired, I now have a P4. 95 undergoing a body sills etc restoration in my garage. So the Rover P4 was my first and maybe my Last car.
