My first car, the MG Metro | Thank Frankel it's Friday

It’s a pity I don’t have a photograph of it, because it was the first car I ever owned. It was a black MG Metro, almost new at the time, number plate PUC 364Y. According to the DVLA it was last MOT’d in 1992 which came as a surprise to me, not least because I thought I’d written it off eight years earlier.

Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
