If you don't look like this after ten minutes of car ownership, you bought the wrong car:

Certainly not a great advert for Photobucket. My gran could display photos quicker than that, and she's dead.

No he's bought a Renault Koleos Diesel with leather seats, apparently no one in Britain actually bought one, even though they were on sale here for 4 years. The GGG as usual were ahead of the curve when it came to recognising the classic potential of what others think is just old shite- see also Rover P6.

Also as you can't see the pictures, I feel I should point out Mr Conelrad lost the fingers of his right hand to a giant French pussy and is currently sitting at a speed dating event at what looks ,from the white plastic garden furniture, a retro French Pikey site.

Any more info I can provide about the photos, just ask.

You're welcome!

It's been 35 years since I drove a 16 , but I seem to remember it's a lever down near ones left shin, sort of where a bonnet pull might be. Presumably the vent and lever are dependent on left or right hand drive, also am I right in thinking very early cars just had a vent with no flap?

The car must be registered before we can drive it away. So the dealer is driving us to a fairly distant town so we can experience some German bureaucracy.
