Margaret Fletcher… Yes

Roy Penfold… Once a car very similar to a friends pulled up. I opened the passenger door and got in to find a very confused looking chap in the drivers seat. Just as I was apologising my friend pulled up behind..

Terry Hardwick… I did a Austin 1800 and my key opened it and I got in then realised and rapidly got out.

Judith Monk… Did it the other day!

John Williams… I sat in one and an old lady was in the passenger seat driver went off to get a parking ticket scared the shit out of me and the woman I thought I left my car unlocked

Nicki Dann… Lol no ! You know what I mean

John Warner… I nearly broke into another Mini Cooper once, same colour. Luckily I looked through the window and realised it wasn’t mine. Mine was about 3 cars away.

Keith Blizard… Yep at Goodwood Races and the car and first four letters and numbers were the same !

Alan Parker… Yep, back in the ’70s when car locks werent so good got into what I thought was my Cortina and started it up and then realised it was not mine coz it was manuel and mine was auto.

Bob Cockburn… Yes, last wk…..I tried to clean someone else’s tyre. Doh !!!

Alan Parker… That was good of you Bob. If I bring my car round could you give it a wash?

Brigitte Lee… My daughter recently had a stranger get in the back of her car by accident!

John Coleman… I actually got into 3 mk4 cortina’s one night after a night shift thinking each car was mine!! All lined up one in front of the other! Key working perfectly Christ it was weird one mistakes acceptable but 4 cars same make and colour ect and point being the key fitted all of them no problemo

Alan Parker… just shows how easy it was to steal a car in those days, I had a mini you could open and start with a nail file

Leigh Wieland-Boys… I had a blue Hillman Minx back in the 70s & on more than one occasion tried to get into someone else’s – remember thinking once that someone had stolen my sheepskin seat covers…..then realised it wasn’t my car!

Mick O’Dowd… Er…Yes!

Julie Findlay-jones… Unfortunately yes just as the owner walked up as well I was mortified.lol

Andy Qunta… Yup!

Dave Nattress… Yes for sure, and very recently in Wickham Avenue, Bexhill and more than once have I lost the car in a car-park. As for actually getting in wrong cars, I was sitting in Morrison’s car-park a few years back waiting for Mrs N to return, and waiting and waiting, she’d gone for the usual 2 things – which means at least 22, and parked very close to my car was the same model and colour and a lady weighed down with a couple of shopping bags and obviously thinking about goodness knows what opened the rear passenger door dumped the bags before I really caught on and then opened the front passenger door and threw herself  in next to me.  I said as pleasantly as I good, (it was no great problem, and a real LOL), ” wrong car dear”, and she didn’t get it but looked over as I said it again in and then caught on.  Embarrassed was she, you bet?!?! and she apologised and we both laughed out loud, she collected her bags from the back and off she went.
Used to work with a guy who had exactly the same company car, Black Ford Amontillado, and the times I came out of the office and stood by his car and hit the open button on the key and failed to realise it was his not mine so wouldn’t open!

Alan Parker… Remember losing my car in North Weald Market car park some years ago. it was half an hour before I remembered I’d changed my car from a sierra to an mg the day before and had actually walked past it 6 or 7 times before I remembered. doh!
