Do you remember your first car?

The huge excitement that came with realising you can go anywhere, whenever you want.

The sad acceptance that motoring can be quite expensive when you had your first MOT.

The surprising feeling of guilt when you traded the car in for something less rusty.

Our first cars are special, which is why Direct Line’s First car, first love competition is fixing it for one reader to win back their first ever car.

Take a look at the infographic below to see some fascinating statistics we uncovered about British drivers’ relationships with their first cars.

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.
