It matters not a jot to have a headlining the same colour as the inside of a teapot on a crap car, adds to the experience of owning such a thing
THIS CAR WAS OWNED BY A NON-SMOKER ANd how important is this, really, on a shonky old crate?

The second R5 I had was owned by a chainsmoker before me - the thing stank, and once you'd been in it for 10 minutes you did too. Shampooing the carpets and seats did nothing for it either. Have to say I won't be buying a car from anyone who smokes tabs in future.
It's been annoying me as well. I thought this whole anti-smoking thing had gone as far over the top as it could possibly go, but apparently I was wrong. I'm sure several of my fleet hav ebeen smoked in, but to be perfectly frank I couldn't give a flying f**k. It's not like you're going to die of lung cancer from sitting in a car in which someone once enjoyed a Lambert & Butler, is it? I don't smoke myself and I don't particlarly like people smoking around me, but the way this whole smoking ban thing has been dealt with really cheeses me off.

Absolutely right!! If you're a non-smoker, that vile stench is reason enough to not even consider buying a car. I went to look at a really tidy R25 Monacco a year or so ago, but as soon as I opened the door and filled my nostrills with fag stink, I turned and walked away!
I loved a lot of things about my R25 TXI, but one thing I couldn't live with was the horrendous stench of stale fags that came with it when I bought it. When the ashtrays had filled up someone had even taken to flicking their ash into the tape deck!!I guess I bought it thinking it would be an executive express, all leathery and sumptuous, but from an olfactory perspective it was like driving round in an old red phone box.

Give me a good description of the car's mechanics and rusty bits first please. If I see non-smoker at the bottom I'd probably think, "OK that's a bonus" but it really isn't important on an old car to me. I reckon 20 years of dog hairs are harder to shift than a bit of fag ash!
Oh and here's the only Tredia Turbo you'll get for Â£100, Hirst
Seems the owner spent more on Players No.6 than Waxoyl
Thanks to Darren for the pic
By the way Marinast, any chance you can make your avatar a bit smaller please? I don't have widescreen and it's pushing the threads off my monitor!
