    What was your first European luxury car and how old were you?

    I was 22 when I first had an E Type 4.2 Jaguar 2+2 in Sebring Red.
    I wish I still had a lot of the cars and Ducati motorbikes from the seventies, they were very cheap then.
    So how old were you? and what did you have?

    What constitutes a luxury car?

    Bought a VW GTI when I was 28. An MGB at 30. And my wife and I bought a Volvo XC70 (used) when I was 33.

    Bought a 2000 MB S430 in 2005. I must have been about 52.

    Not sure what qualifies as luxury but I would have been in my mid 20s.

    Possible cars that might qualify:

    Humber Super Snipe
    Mercedes 220 LWB
    MGB
    boattailed Alfa Duetto 1750 twin Dellorto carburetors & 10mm cams
    Austin Healey 3000
    Healey Mini Cooper 1275

    later I was lucky enough to work selling cars, Alfas, Renault, Citroen, Saab, Lotus, Volvo ...

    AbE: forgot some:

    E-type
    Triumph Bonneville
    a DKW
    Alfa Berlina and Guilia

    I have only ever had 1 European brand vehicle and it was a Volkswagen Quantam with an inline 5 cylinder and 5 speed manual. I was 19. It was a great car and have some good memories from it.
