    'Terribly badly made, comedy electrics and lost all of it's value the moment the bastard was wheeled out of the showroom. The floor is rusty, the wiring was done by a chimp and it needs loads of batteries to try and start it. But enough about the Iveco, here is my Aixam electric car'

    I've seen how he drives it. I think he won't mind.
    But genuinely, though. If I try to drive it gently, the gear changes are shit and it just doesn't feel happy. Kicking absolute fuck out of it everywhere makes progress much smoother (if not any quicker).

    The perfect two-car fleet.
    One sounds hilarious and drifts, the other is a modest mid-90s coupe.
     
    I did some improvements the other day.
    First, I painted the wiper arms and set them to the correct position. They no longer clatter into the a-pillar when in use.

     
    I also did some invisible* rust repairs on the front wing.

     
     
    Yes, the thread title change means the Civic has officially left the fleet.
     
    I have enough in the bank to go out and buy a sensible petrol supermini if the Rexton suddenly expires. I still don't entirely trust it to not do exactly that, but it seems fine for now. I've gradually learned that driving it absolutely flat-out with very little mechanical sympathy actually makes the driving experience smoother and more enjoyable. It also has lots and lots of veg oil in it now. It loves it.

    Update for me. 
    Back in July I sold the Smart threw here, it's changed hands again since I believe. Was a nice little thing but as id said for my daily commute to work (80% duel carriageway and lots of hills)  it just wasn't really the car for the job. 
    My Abarth has been giving me more problems...so for the last 3 month's I've been useing my mums car , a 1.6, base spec W-Reg Mk4 Golf, Its a great thing, but she's needing it full time again. 
    So I needed a car to use for work, and as a replacement for the Abarth when I get to selling it. Since @Supernaut got the Rexton, his Civic was surplus to requirement so....

    I've had my eye in one of these for a few years now, since my dad got one. So when he said it'd be for sale I said I'd have it! 
    I love the way they drive, the rapid torques and the spaceship design. It'll also do great for the commute for work. I know I'm getting old when I'm starting to care about MPG's! 🤣

    That was an easy fix.
    This photo was taken with my phone resting on the clutch pedal.
    That's the blend door motor and associated gubbins just sitting there at the edge of the foot well, unprotected. All I had to do was clip the rod connected to the 'wheel' back into place and I restored full functionality to the vents.

    I did know that Studebaker were still going in the late 50s, but I didn’t know they offered a price leader/poverty spec model named the ‘Scotsman’. And yes, that name was chosen to emphasise the low price and frugality of running it. 

     
    Sold better than expected, including one to FD Roosevelt’s (wartime president) widow Eleanor.

    The interior was also attended to.
    The front mats were removed and the cabin hoovered

    plenty work there for the hoover, but they came up really well!
    I also gave the driver and passenger seat an initial hoover, scrub and wet vac - still some work to do but significantly less mank
    The mats needed a stiff brush to remover the white dog hair, then hoovering before a scrub and second hoover to dry them out.
    Before

    After (laid out to dry in the sun)

    They look great back in!
     
    The back passenger compartment got pretty much the same treatment - mats out/brushed and hoovered and the carpet all swept and hoovered. The seats were all hoovered too

    If you look closely you can see the plastic discs that slide beneath the seat rails to locate the mats, and the poppers that let the two rear sections securely connect. 
    They are belters of mats - @Jim Bell would barely be able to control himself if he were to see them in the flesh.
     
    there was plenty of detritus to be removed from the rear.

     
    after all that, the interior was a significantly more pleasant place to be - here we see @Supernaut enjoying* it
