Your first car may have been a bit rough around the edges and maybe it didn’t like to start on cold mornings, but it will probably always have a special place in your heart.

In spite of its quirks (and the sometimes surprising car insurance costs), you had fun, experienced new things and built treasured memories together.

We wondered how many of you would love to get your first car back. So we gave you the chance to do just that, with First car, first love – a competition to give someone back their first ever car.

Touching stories and memorable photos of your first cars flooded in. You can see some of the best in our gallery below.

Things you need to know about Over 50s life insurance:
Premiums stop after your 90th birthday but you still enjoy cover for the rest of your life. In the first year, if you die from natural causes we will refund any premiums, or if you die as a result of an accident, we will pay your cash sum. After the first year regardless of the cause of death we will pay your cash sum. Depending on how long you live, the total sum paid in premiums may be more than the cash sum payable on death. If you stop paying your premiums before the end of your policy your cover will stop 30 days after your missed premium and you won’t get anything back. This isn’t a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made. Inflation will reduce the buying power of your cash sum in the future.
