Yes- the Granada is registered -DL which fits (or is an unusual coincidence) as the last keeper change was in 1971 prior to it coming off the road in 1973 was to an address on the Isle of Wight.

Their mum is not quite as keen.

I've just popped to the Indian in it. Chucking it around a roundabout at not many mph made me feel like I was taking mulsanne corner in a pre war 24hr race. All at 20mph tops!

I drove past this today, so I know where you live! I always look at the cars on your neighbours drive and recognised this one straight away!

Chucked a low bid on this whilst drunk watching the footy yesterday. One family from new, doesn't look too battered. Hopefully it won't leak like a seive nor have knackered front suspension and door locks made of cheese like my last one. It does however have the TDI PD 130 lump which many rate as a high water mark in VAG dizzlers. My lowball offer was accepted, to my suprise. A Seasoned shiter and collectionist has kindly agreed to retrieve it for me from the midlands.

It's quite well specd with leather, factory sat nav, headlamp washers, sunroof etc, all extra cost kit. The listing also mentions a "solar panel" on the roof. Was that a factory option or is he talking tosh?

Well bought. A much nicer and better appliance than the equivalent aged Vectra washing machine.

It's built into the sunroof glass, pretty rare option I think! Sounds a well specced motor, I do like B5.5 Passats and nearly bought another this year but I was being too specific about colour and trim level.

For me, this is absolutely the Passat to have. Right mark, right motor, right colour.

When you come to sell it for £2.67 tomorrow lunchtime, please let me know.

Ps. Good to see you’ve got your mojo back.

Poor man's B5 110 TDI. They're still good looking cars, especially the estates. The last longitudinal engine FWD VW.

That looks a decent one. Clean enough. Just keep her serviced and make sure the fuel filter is sound.

Joy of multiple wishbone front suspension too:)

They do steer better than a Golf platform car but don't handle as well. A bit "what is point".

My Golf platform Bora handles like a fucking boat, and it has recent shocks, they really do feel 20 years old compared to more modern stuff, it feels broken driven back to back with my mates mk1 Focus, the PD130's are good though :)

The girlfriend's son came back from school with some cardboard cut out and glue cars.
This one caught my eye.

The Passat is even more boat like! The Bora handles okay but it's no 306 or Focus.
