    You definitely wouldn't have deduced from the ad artwork that this car was about the size of a malnourished wheelbarrow.

    Guilty, I took a 4000 mile car in almost perfect condition sold my Audi A6 and went back to driving old cars everyday. I used it for everything I would have used the Audi for  over nearly 2 years and it never broke down.
    I did have to hit the starter  motor a couple of times and a couple of small jobs, rear brake cylinders and new exhaust and that was it. Took it to 16000 miles and strangely it wasn't  the winter that caused any damage but the summer sun on the velour and dash trims which started to fade.
    I used it to go quoting jobs for my business and Im sure I got more jobs as it proved a good ice breaker when turning up somewhere new.

    I have a 1994 model with the later 4.6L Northstar V8. It is a Japanese export model, so has factory tinted glass and a few other features peculiar to that market. It goes well and it's a nice place to be. I have had it ten years and it has been reliable in service so far.
    Minor things have needed doing, but nothing has been exclusive to this model:
    I had to replace the plastic grommet in the gearshift cable end, where it links to the gearbox switch, as the original perished. The cable end wouldn't then push the gearbox switch far enough in 'Park' to tell the car it was out of gear. The result was that it wouldn't start in 'Park' or let me close the trunk lid! A new grommet was the fix for that.
    One of the temperature sensors in the AC pipe died, but I got a couple of new items from the USA via eBay. Fitting them is a job for this year, so the car can come out to play again.
    Six-cylinder took it to Shitefest '14.

    Those are pics not long before I sold it and started using the Princess. I loved the Vauxhall but it had a manual box and I prefer autos.
    The Princess was bought to take over from the Vauxhall but a big change in my life and job meant I was  working from home and needed something big to tow with and a big loading area so I sold the Vauxhall, kept the Princess just for fun and bought this for towing as you can never have too many V8s.
