What's wrong with not wanting to see a decent old car get trashed? Or am I missing the point here?
Oh, this kind of shit really makes my blood boil. It's this type of 'classic' car fan that makes me really tempted to buy that Marina and give it something that would make a Top Gear durability test look like a trip to the valeters.
Q: what a minter Doctor , a real "find" please don't sell Her to the BBC and Clarkson's mob , I am sure She will find a good owner ,good luck with Her. Martin
Nothing at all is wrong with not wanting to see an old car get trashed, but that "Don't let the nasty BBC" nonsense is pretty much designed to make me buy things just to smash them to smithereens and put the video on youtube titled "Practical / Popular Classics Marina Restoration".
It's a tidy old thing, and nice to know that there is still one out there that is as it was built. Not something I'd personally want, but it's blatantly one of the most original and tidy ones about and anyone who likes cars can see that.
It's just I have a constant, nagging, psychopathic urge to ruin the day of anyone who expects any Marina to now be destroyed by the BBC / Top Gear / Clarkson and feels the need to send messages to random ebay folk to try and talk them out of selling to the BBC. FFS, the Doc is obviously a proper car enthusiast and a reasonably discerning one at that - he's highly unlikely to flog something to Top Gear anyway.
Whereas he would flog it to me....
