Many of us remember our very first car. We saved up for what seemed like forever and we finally got together that few hundred pounds to buy our first set of wheels. That little car was our lifeline and it took us to the university and back, took us to see our friends and allowed us to go shopping on those rainy days. We probably even gave it a name and although it didn’t look great, we still gave it a wash and polish at the weekends. However, after a time, it became impossible to start in the mornings and even when we got started, it would stop again.
