When I saw that on Vecartec a call to the blog parade was launched, which carries the title “My first Car”, it was clear that I would have to write something about it too.
At the first car from my childhood I can only remember dark. We had two VW buses, one in orange and one in red. I think the orange was the first. With the buses we went to Turkey and spent our summer vacation there. Three or four weeks on the track we were on the way.
Over the years only vehicles of the VW Group came into the house, because my father was hired by a VW-daughter. 2012, I moved professionally to Karlsruhe and drove home every weekend. After about 16 years of the Ibiza was no longer suitable for long-haul, my father bought a golf with which I should drive for the time being. But after another year, the Ibiza also stopped driving in the city and I had to decide if I wanted to continue the golf and my father buys another car or I.
Since this year an IAA was held again in Stuttgart my friend and I drove on the way back from my home vacation there. For the last six months we have tested various vehicles, but apart from the Toyota GT86 and Subaru GT, nothing really convinced me. And as luck would have it, just at the Subaru Booth we met the trader from Duisburg. He would still have a black GT in the store that I could have within a week. So I spent the next few days comparing prices and asking other dealers. But no one had a similar price and was able to give a guarantee for 5 years. So it became it, the Black GT.
My first own car
And because Black is such a boring color, an appointment was immediately booked at the Folierer, who made me this incredibly cool yellow on the car. Sunflower Matt Metallic. The most beautiful color I could imagine for my car! That was at the beginning of October 2013. Since October 2017, my car has been paid off and belongs to me all by myself! By the way, for a long time my GT was the only yellow in Germany, until Toyota released a yellow edition and also one or the other wrapped or dipped his car. Many yellows still do not exist!
the car. In color, that’s striking. I am regularly referred to the car and the color. Luckily only by people who find the car or the color beautiful. There have already been some very nice conversations with this. So you don’t necessarily need a dog to get into conversation with strange people.
Unfortunately, you can now see some quirks on the film. Unfortunately, my fellow people on the parking lot are not very respectful. And sometimes there’s something on the street. But the film is also there to protect the paint. And look good still does it!
The most beautiful memory with my car
Phew, what was the most beautiful is hard to say. Especially the rides through the vineyards make me a lot of fun. Curvy streets, green forests, beautiful views and if you get up early enough, breathtaking sunrises! But see for yourself, photos often say more than 1000 words!
For all those who buy a new car, I can only recommend to do a driving safety training to get to know the new car.
What was your first car? What have you experienced with the car?
