Joking aside, I think I probably am. But why spend money on your health when you can spend it on cars?

In terms of head room, the seat isn't on the highest setting - I've checked. But I am in agreement on the steering feel, it's lovely.

In 405s with sunroofs headroom is a bit limited, only a little better in cars without.
I don't think they're designed for tall people.

I'm probably being a little hard on it, I've had a look underneath and can't see anything untoward , I've took pictures as well.
I've been using it daily as it's the only usable car just now . I think the engine feels a little thrashy and that's what I'm feeling when driving it. Apart from a bit on the rear arch there is NO rust which for a carina is unheard of.

While my Datsun gently Rusts.

Yes, but when I did I got immediately shouted down by the know it alls, so I don't mention it anymore.

Fact is it's the only one I ever owned that had that shit applied and it's the only one that's rotting like a Mercedes.


I am seriously shocked by the pics.

It never looked like this underneath while I had it. I never ever leave mud on the undercarriage.

What? I missed that. Pray tell - I was considering undersealing mine until I read that.

Underseal on new metal where water cannot get behind it is fine, providing its totally sealed with no cracks.

Underseal on old crappy metal/rust, does a fine job of making it look pretty.

But holds in moisture so the metal carries on rusting until a lump of underseal and rust falls off, disclosing a hole.


I use underseal though, covers the welds great.
