  1. https://duggystoneradio.com/2019/12/02/the-road-show-9-jack-kirk-tv-and-movie-cars-special/ Oh and if radio's not your thing we also have The Road Show blog. This one was taken from our latest episode on cars from TV and Movies
  2. Thank you, that means a lot. Nows probably also a good time to mention that on Facebook we also have a group page. Just search for The Road Show - Duggystone Radio and, by all means if you want to, add yourselves to it. It just means that when we're looking for peoples opinions you can comment with your views and experiences. It would help me immensely. Thanks.
  3. Hi, I don’t know what Autoshite’s policy is on shameless self promotion but I think if there’s a place to promote my new radio show it’s here. So ten weeks ago I was approached by a dad of an old mate of mine who has an online radio station called Duggystone Radio. He follows my Instagram and took a liking to my little history lessons of cars so he wanted me on a show. And before I knew it, The Road Show began as a little 10 minute segment on Monday’s Business Show but it’s already expanded to its own hour-long programme. I’ll admit that the show does still need some work. From next week I’ll be turning it into a show which, rather than just covers one topic, has various small segments that hopefully will become regulars so people know what to expect. I want it to have car related news, perhaps a segment on someone’s interesting car, maybe even road tests - who knows?! It airs on Sundays at 11am on Duggystone Radio (you young blades can download the app on your Androids and iPhones) and then it gets uploaded to Mixcloud afterwards for people to listen to whenever they want. I’ve been a member of Autoshite for a long time and absolutely love it’s community so I wondered if you’d be interested in giving the show a listen and telling me what you think. I mean let’s face it I’m no HubNut, I’m 18 after all, but it would mean the world for me if my shows got your backing as petrol heads and enthusiasts of shite cars. Thank you. This episode was the second we did. I cover a wide variety of topics (like developments in the electric car world, people’s first cars, even a report from the NEC Classic Motor Show a few weeks back) but this one is probably the most shite so far, it’s Cars You Love To Hate. www.mixcloud.com%2FDuggystoneradio%2Fthe-road-show-_-cars-you-love-to-hate%2F&h=AT0Msi3J2qq27etz5c-2ajIXFqU8KH05ane_LT574H6f19ZeVeZlgn0JuN7r0LTX5kUADI3jIKe5AIOJVji8aqQXIbSyP0H6nB6PUeUcc39gTYcKzMpAEN3ekHxjoaM-CxJ0nVDA04axpjLSsIU6I7u_zXIEJXEeo5zeJqzscez2ZdWieRjFfxK2k52K9iuNmVIJDB7RQ4_jR8sk1Lq16ucKLVD3Xbqsk4XIbURTwYbOBwNao8DX1_yrf553_mteE7U6w6jbX9max9p-EhQIe-aOLLgjUPpendgA0m0rQ6uwJxJGZbmc0XFJq32gb0WmjwbQoUdR6y7uFbycHd5I87FdCDZdZfDfcYQL9HShBwiZNDsvdfIkUvE7RFQ1rCWfBC6n40h8eExsigoV3X8G-6vmWEgtkgnifBdMOm_HHnqYOnWETRVLy_FRiYGsoWwynz5QT7HjzzQ940rsLc5lHFcm7yOvuQaANNEregFuaR2dkTsrRCuId8U7eBs06kHYB4sk1X89yuHsMhmpant1_gA7YJa6pqIuVbpusxVJDfQEaa8f8-RDCIsWxtR6ZYYPqcji8crcQYHV1mmg-aUm7L_aT1aKqj4aw49fsRwue-Wuv6h3UDU2NLkLvwy6NXm5EoSB9hu4fnA
  4. Found on a stroll around sunny Nuneaton. Never seen either of these on the road before.
  5. Going tomorrow. Really looking forward to it. Gonna make it my next radio show too so I’ll be armed with a GoPro, microphone and one of those stabilising arm things that HubNut has. So you know this counts as working...

    A shiter holiday

    E-Type? Haha, no. Ageing Hyundai does it beautifully. Love it almost as much as I love that there Renault!
  7. Actually want to do that to my mum's one. It really matches the 79bhp diesel's performance
  8. My mum has owned a Picasso since new in 2007 and its been an excellent car. No intentions of replacing it any time soon. It has the 1.6 diesel that produces a dizzying 79bhp but its great on long runs to and from airports. Very comfortable seats too! Yeah I bloody love the Xsara Picasso

    Kitten kapers

    There's two Reliant Kitten Estates that I sometimes see round Nuneaton, one yellow, the other a sort of Trabant esque brown colour. Is it true that these things get about 50mpg? If so thats as good as any modern motor
  10. Don't think the Allegro estates ever got the quartic steering wheel. They were removed from the saloons in October 1975.
  11. I once had a dream where I had travelled back in time to about 1984 and I was walking around where I knew in Coventry (like my nan and grandads house) looking at all of the cars. From the photos I've seen it was strangely accurate, they had a CX Safari and a Metro, the neighbours had a Maestro and someone had a yellow Cavalier. It was a pretty cool dream.
  12. Saw one of these today, but it was brown instead. The kind of car Autoshite was made for - something once luxurious and is now just a strange oddity. Very noice indeed
  13. What my family would call 'Invacar Blue'
  14. 1977, Coventry: A bit later, still Coventry:
