Crikey, haven't seen Peter Simpson since he was on on George "blubs like a baby" Clarke's tv show, amazing space

 

And back then I was thinking, haven't seen Peter Simpson since he did Practical Classics

Love Peter Simpson!


Isn't he a bit of a used car dealer? Seem to remember he buys and sells a few, Volvo's I think, or have I made it up?

Overall, I think the feeling is of being pretty underwhelmed. On paper, a far better drive than the Honda, but in reality, I prefer the hopeless handling and bouncy ride of my black brick.

Oh dear, really? I've been wanting to try an Omega for a while so bought one about 30 minutes ago, collecting next week hopefully. It's pez GLS spec and was cheap so worth a try.

Yup. Was telling me earlier how he'd bought a 2010 Hyundai something or other for £300. Ex-Police, and a wheel had fallen off, but that still sounds pretty good to me!

Oh don't get me wrong. My Senator craving shows no signs of abating. Much better looking than an Omega, and VELOUR. Not interested in one with leather.
