Almost a third of the write-off value. If they insured 4 they would be quids in - thieving b*stards

But there are third party liabilities to be considered as well.

I think my first car insurance was £100 which was about the same cost as the car, my first one, a Well worn Hillman Imp. This was around 1971 and if my memory is right the Co-op was the insurer.

Interesting topic as now that I think about it my recent policies on Mazda Mx5, our current Xtrail and Hyundai i10 all come in about £250 fully comprehensive (self and wife). Almost certainly my Imp policy would have been 3rd party, fire and theft which was considerably cheaper than comprehensive back then.

This would appear to point to insurance being another example of something that has become cheaper in real terms over the years, but this conclusion is based on my own experience and is not researched.

No idea about insurance cost but my first car was a new Renault Dauphine at a cost of £365!

I try and state simple facts in a nice way.

Ah the infamous Dauphine!! I remember them well, with considerable hatred!! They were an absolute nightmare to do any work on. As the apprentice I ALWAYS got the sh**y jobs, and the Dauphine had more than its fair share of them!

As for the cost of my first insurance, my memory isnít good enough (it was 48 years ago now) My current insurance is, in my tight fisted view, very reasonable indeed considering the car I drive.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

As I remember the Dauphine had only 3 gears and no syncro on first. You had to stop to engage first or make lots of noise.
Plus as I remember the fan blades were very close to the rear grille. Heard storied of fingers being chewed by those blades.
Werne't they all red and used by mini cabs?

My first car was an Austin A35 van. Useful for carrying hay bales and horse tack. The driving instructor told me that if I could drive that I could drive anything
Caused me no end of problems when I drove Chris's Corsair which was an automatic. This was because the A35 went faster with the choke out so I just drove the Corsair the same way! Of course this caused it to conk out on a regular basis, usually at cross roads!
