......Was your first Car/Motorbike?

......Was the Rent on your first place after leaving home?

I think it was £6 ish an hour (coincidentally also at Argos)

Yes, I paid my parents a small amount when I went back for a few months after university

Toyota Yaris

If you count university I think that was about £60 per week. In the real world it was £750 per month between 3 of us

£700,000 (after 15ish years of renting)

My first unofficial job was at The Warren in the Summer of 1977.At the Amusement Arcade on the front(where the pub is now)dolling out the change & looking after the machines.
50p per hour paid in cash at the end of the week.
Hours totted up on a bit of scrap paper.
There was a story I had to say if anyone asked what I was doing there..😁😁

That place made the owners a fortune.No one would really know what was taken by the gaming machines & Bingo Hall.
The old girl had a new XJS,the other cars were a New Merc SL,Jag XJ6 & a Triumph Stag which looked a bit sick parked by that lot outside.

From memory that arcade was run by the Harrison’s, they had a big house near where the squash courts used to be in Dawlish
