    Default Youngest R10 owner in Australia?

    Ahoy-hoy!
    Can i justly claim to be the youngest current R10 owner in Australia? I bought it when I was sixteen and am now eighteen.
    Can anyone claim to beat me???

    I got mine when i was 17 and just got off my p's. I don't think i saw another one on p's while i was on them. Keep flying the R10 flag and show the minis and vw's french power!!

    Actually he was only 12 when he got the blue 10S. we gave him the brown one for his 13th birthday because his mother was panicing about the blue cars total lack of brakes. He'd been driving the blue car for about 2 months and I'll never forget the shock on his face when he first drove the brown one and discovered what the middle pedal does, I don't think he's used it ever since (who wants to slow down anyway). That's my boy

    Don't know what to get him for his 14th birthday.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Same here Cor, 18 years old, we can start lessons at 16. When I say my sons been driving since age 12 I mean on our property only.

    In my family we only drive manual, automatics are lazy cars for lazy people.
    Also, I'm in the motor trade and I see how much they cost to fix, you'd have to be bloody mad to drive a modern automatic.

    Hey Alan we're not much different, my brother and I are eyeing off my old mans 1969 Porsche 911E he's had sitting in his garage since 1980.

    The old man turns 70 this year so maybe we won't have long to wait.
