    Sausage5000 got a reaction from Cavcraft in Kiltox’s eternally fucked 1992 Renault Clio 1.4 RT auto   
    Clios seemed to get more bloated and hideous for every facelift they got. The 5, Clio mk1 and Clio mk2 pre-facelift are nice lookers.

    No. It was originally called ‘Kiss From a Seat Arose’. And the kiss involved was at 35mph, to Seal’s face.

    Looks like a modern day washing machine, or kitchen appliance.
    It will look even blander once it’s released with a blobbier crumple zones, US spec headlights and 5 foot high pedestrian friendly front end, and sat under grey February skies in a fifteen mile gridlocked m6 with 18 stone middle management Marcus at the wheel.

    Sausage5000 got a reaction from Cavcraft in Cavcraft 2020: No smoke, no poke. But still not much poke.   
    Yes, there's no looking past the fact that those rank wheels let the whole thing down, aestheically and probably performance/ride as well.
    It would immediately benefit from some standard VW van steelies.

    Sausage5000 got a reaction from Burnside in 1993 L reg Vauxhall Cavalier 1.8i LS. Mot'd May 2020. West Mids. Congrats to M'coli!.   
    SURELY one of the best cars made in the past 40 years or whatever!
    pistonheads/top gear fans all will agree with me
     
    ANY job on these is DIY, they’re so easy to work on and you can drive to work and back without oil or coolant (source my dad, cavalier 1.6GLS, 2006)

    Agree with the simplicity thing, my current car is as simple as they come and it's great, but I miss things like cruise control, parking sensors, rain sensors, auto lights, satnav touch screen etc etc
    The radar thing and lane assistance is just un-neccessary, as is an internet browser in the dashboard, and that Sprinter steering wheel scares me.

    Trials with patients suffering from severe depression led to hospital management introducing a scheme called ‘Spend a day with someone trying to cure an overheating K-series’.
    It was a success, and cured 100% of cases who realised that their lives “weren’t that bad after all.”

    My old escort Rs Turbo had gearbox in sump when I changed to first instead of fifth at 100mph on the m62, as well as some other engine parts.

    That gearknob is OEM MSport, it's missing the plastic thing obviously.

    On the subject of saxamophones, the original Citroen Saxo began life as a saxophone by instrument maker Yamaha. The french car company took the tooling and developed the fruity brass instrument into the car we know and love* today. 100% true.
     
    Reliant cars were meant to be metal. Factory workers took the fibre glass concepts and assumed they should be made that way. Nobody in management noticed this cock up until 2005. Upon realising the error, CEO Dave Reliant made the company bankrupt.
    The twist of this story? All reliant concept cars were made from pressed steel. How did Reliant workers make this mistake? Was this a simple misunderstanding? Or was it something beyond our understanding ... something of a supernatural nature?
    Some stories are ... stranger than fiction. Goodnight, and don’t have nightmares.
