EDF's "dancing turd" advert was created after an advertising executive took a test drive in a G-swiz.

The Audi Q7 was originally an agricultural machine, designed to prepare the soil for a large flower show held annually in West London. This is why it is often referred to as a Chelsea Tractor

The Austin Allegro was going to originally have a steering wheel in the shape of a dodecahedron, but Harris Mann, with his acrylic hair got wind of this, and said it would be too uncomfortable to handle, a triangle was also proposed, but in the end they went for the square option. There are questions as to what they were smoking in their pipes in the BL R&D office during the 1970s, especially Harris' cheese fetish

When the entire Talbot range was undergoing development work, it was clear that it would be a far superior to anything else that PSA would be offering, so it was decided to downgrade one very basic feature of all the cars, such that they would not overshadow the rest of the range. Which is why an intermittent wiper function was ommitted, and the same column stalks (without intermittent function) were used throughout the range.
Current fleet:  Mercedes.  Xantia.  Berlingo.  Discovery.  Forward Control.  Nova. Historic shite.
