Vauxhall Grandland. No picture as you wouldn't thank me.


I googled it. Looks like someone inflated an Insignia.

I honestly wouldn't have noticed it, was the remit to design an SUV that looks just like all the others?

Well car makers are dammed if they do and dammed if they don't.

Make an SUV like all the others = Grandad land.

Or

Make an SUV not like all the others = Juke.

Nobody wins.

In France on Monday & saw several new Renault Espaces, I didn't know they made this new version & I have to say they looked really smart, quite low and sleek more like an estate than an SUV thing. I also saw one badged "Initiale" on the tailgate where the other say "Espace", this used to be a trim level on Renaults, but seems to be a model now.

What on earth did I see today? It was on an R reg. R***BCH I think it was.

It looked like a modern incarnation of a Fiat Topolino / Triumph Mayflower. Horrible, but what was it? I assume it was Japanese and based on a Micra?

Another car I have never seen before, the owner said he was not surprised as he thinks only 6 or 7 were built.

 

M.C. Acer kit, this one built by the owner built from Vauxhall Firenza mechanics and Dolomite dash by the current owner.

You know that bug eyed Corolla they did?

 

A saloon one of them. The rear looked utterly at odds to the front end, like a surprised expression and a dreary rear. Actually now I think about it, reminds me of an ex.
