  1. SaaB 9-5, the new for 2010 model. No wonder SaaB went under, making proper saloons that looked smart.
  2. Subaru Legacy/Outback/Forester. But avoid Diesels because the engines fail catastrophically. According to the internet.

    30 years ago Audi were making their "vorsprug durk technick" reputation with these. Downhill ever since? This is a lovely place to sit. These are lovely engines to cruise and to thrash. And this one looks to be in lovely nick. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1989-Audi-100-avant-2-2E/123938447309?hash=item1cdb4e9fcd:g:lxAAAOSwCd9do0Tg
  5. None of them are car people at all and none of their cars are more than two years old, except for youngest's rusting '04 Focus and newest driver's 09 Corsa. So between the kids and their spouses: BMW 1 & 2 series, Audi A6, Touran and (my favourite) a Ssanyong Rexton. The Petrol 1 series goes wrong a lot. The Petrol 2 series was a bit of a bargain as the lad's boss wanted rid after six months and needed an employee to dump the lease on. But he doesn't think much of it either. The Diesel A6 is only a week old and is the third A6, so Audi must be doing something he likes. I was dissapointed that the 4.0 badge on the bootlid doesn't indicate a big engine? ( But he is desperate to get the "lane departure control" deleted, 'cause it scares him.) Daughter loves her petrol Touran, but just admitted that they still havn't managed to sell the Golf Dieseel ruined by VW's updated software. Horse-girl loves the Rexton, with it's 3 tonne towing weight. and school-run dominating presence.

    Worst thing about this Corvair is the wheels. Still a lovely shape, even in this doomed condition. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Chevrolet-Corvair-american-hot-rod-rat-look-rolling-chassis-restoration-project/133198961190?hash=item1f0346da26:g:aAgAAOSwL0NddWN8

    This. I hate having cars outside my place. Of the three I have got, (all working) I wish I could hide away at least the two I'm not using / playing with. Dead and rotting cars outside? Yuck. They belong under cover, being cared for. Or in the shredder. Why havn't we all got enough garage space? Rant mode - off.
  8. Seeing those pictures of the BX seat mounts etc reminded me that I had my BX fitted with the accessory seat adaptor kit which moved the seat runners back about 50mm for extra leg space. Simply a pair of steel bars with suitable holes and screws. Also how I struggled with back pain on those seats, dismantling them and shoving bits of ply and packing foam in, trying to get some support for my poor bloody spine! My eventual solution was a new job with no driving 1200 miles a week. Good work on the wet, I hate wet inside a car. I can live with most car issues, but not water, steamy windows mould and rotting mats.
  9. Black seems to be the colour used by Hyundai on their pressed steel valve gear covers back in Pony / Stellar days. (google images etc)

    Good to see a Princess with the correct headlamps for a change! Vinyl roof apart - the perfect spec!
