Start off by buying the wrong car, then cut it up and move the engine into the cab...

 


It always amuses me that e46s vie with the PT Cruiser as the car that's too shit for Autoshite,

I like the Dirt Every Day guys, but yes that one ended up as little more than a shell clothing different running gear.

Most of them do.

 

 

 

On another note, I want to hate this.

 

But then I hear it.

Possibly been on before, but some quality motorway policing from when officers drove 2-door range rovers, there were gaps in the central reservation, and a crashed E-type jag wasn't a big thing.

Warning. Severe amounts of 70's chod. Love it!



Also, that winter looks utterly bleak. Using 2 range rovers to pull out a jack-knife'd lorry though...!

Being the camera man who got that close to all those recovery ropes under tension...

Or being the camera man filming the officer running backwards for safety reasons, whilst running forward yourself.

So very obvious the improvements in vehicle safety over the last 40 years.  Some of those accidents and the injuries they caused were somewhat unpleasant, but a similar accident today would probably see little or no injury at all.  The Ambulance losing control was just ridiculous, and I shudder to think what lack of facilities exist in one, not least after it's been belted into a police car and had it's contents liberally distributed internally.

 

Different times.

The chap with the e-type was very lucky though.

E-types are lethally dangerous cars. I've driven a few (from a very early flat floor that I did not fit in to a lat V12 auto) and every single one of them felt like the slightest bump would put the steering wheel through your chest, rip bits of you apart with the dash, and make a mess of your head on various nasty bits of interior.

I don't like them at all. But that often happens with a model of vehicle you work on for cash.
