Reporter Victoria Bull asked those in the Marlowes Shopping Centre about their driving dreams and memories.
Carl Hurley, Old Town: ‘My first car was an old banged up Fiesta. There’s quite a few I would like, but I think my ideal car would probably be a classic BMW from the 1960s or a vintage Alfa Romeo.’ Mark Kirby, works in Hemel Hempstead Market: ‘My first car was a Ford Cortina . It used to start when it wanted and cut out when it wanted – absolute nightmare. I’d definitely have an Aston Martin DB7.’ James Wylie, Chaulden: ‘I was very happy with my first car, it was fast and I was young. Cars are not a big thing for me – but a Jaguar would probably be my ideal.’ Leslie Brand, Grovehill: ‘I am sort of into cars – the first car I ever drove was an Astra. If money was no object, the supercar I would choose would be a Bugatti.’ Neil Cox, Kings Langley: ‘My first car was a little blue Mini. I was really proud of it, it must have been about 1984. I used to put £10 in every week on payday, and it would go everywhere. It was a great car.’
