It was 30 years ago today that I bought my first Lancia. A Fulvia S3 Coupe for 795! It didn't take long before it was joined by a Fulvia 1600HF Lusso with MOT and tax for 250..........happy days! When and what was your first Lancia? (S3 pic below)

March 1989, my first car - a Fulvia S2 Berlina HAC461K from fellow LMC member Ivan Rhodes. Here having its handbrake adjusted prior to MOT.

Followed by an S2 1300 Coupe, a 16V integrale, S3 Thema Turbo.

I bought my first Lancia, a 1990 Dedra 2.0iese in 1994, the first of 5 and probably the best, certainly as far as specification went.

Shown here in a holiday mood! getting ready for a run to and down the Dordogne.

Good thread!

My first was a 1988 Thema 8v ie LX. Bought in 1992 at 55k miles. Sold 18 months later with 90k odd on it - and that was all private motoring. I was 23 when I bought it. Took it to Budapest and back without a single mishap. Happy happy days.

My first "new" car was a Lancia, a Y10 Fila, F368 YRP, bought on 10th June 1989 from W Ganderton & Son in Buckingham. I drove it for 120,000 with just a replacement clutch at 88k, although plenty of suspension bushes (usually around MOT time). Sadly I had to scrap it in 2002 after it sat for some years, the final straw being when some scroat smashed the rear window and nicked the badges.

My first Lancia was the one I still have, and my only one, bought in 2003 from a dealer in County Durham.  That's probably the least interesting answer you'll get on this thread...

My first Lancia was a Fulvia 3, JVC721N, in mirabello beige, bought in June 1984. The month before my 17th birthday. When birthday arrived, L plates were already on, and I took to the road in it at 0.10hrs.  The first family Lancia was an S1 Beta 1600 Coupe. HUB734N, bought from my dads cousin in Sept 78.

My first was a Beta HPE, I think pre F/L, Red with the funky mustard colour seats (not technically mine as a company car, hand me down from one of the directors) in 1980. Only had it for around 6-9 months, but managed a holiday down to South West France and even slept in it overnight the first night in France as we had underestimated the distance we had to travel......

Given I was travelling all over the country for work, I would have covered around 15K miles whilst I had it and only one problem from memory which was corrosion in the fuse leading to the radiator fan.

Very happy experience.

Everything comes to he who waits..... This is just the beginning.... Speaking from a bit of experience... but still in the minor leagues compared with some LMC members (ask our treasurer...)

I bought a Gamma sedan, my first Lancia except those driven while in the trade, in the rain under a street lamp in Pershore around 1989 for 300. It misfired, the paint was peeling, one wheel bearing was knackered and the clutch slipped. But it had 12 months MOT/Tax and four new tyres. The Sports Car Centre at Drakes Broughton adjusted the clutch, I poured something from Halfords down the carb throat which cleared the misfire. I never changed the w/b but had the roof sprayed and used it for ten months. A week after selling, the new owner rang me, could he borrow the workshop manual as the cam belt had gone. That was the first of four Gammas thus far.

tricky one this, my dad was given my S3 appia when i was 7yrs old ish, i claimed it and said it was mine (told you i was brain washed from an early age) and at 11 learnt to drive in it on my mum and dads field, 1st lancia on the road was a 1990 thema 16v auto in about 2001 i think, this was part ex'd for an integrale evo and then dozens of lancias started flowing my way  Cheesy
