1997 to 2015

54-twingo_3900176811_oI drove my first twingo ever on Tenerife in 1997. I was there on holiday with some friends and we decided to drive up Teide.  The car hire company had Twingos available and it was a no brainer to chose one.  We had a great drive up and down the mountain and a few evenings out and about playing the twingo game.  (Like “Yellow Car” but with twingos!)   Back in 2015 there were twingos around but no where near as many as 1997 and certainly none to hire.
