    M'coli got a reaction from skattrd in Suggestions please - 4x4 needed for a very specific purpose.   
    Shame I didn't think of this earlier - you said that a Jimny is out because it would not easily accommodate 4 to 5 people and their tools.
    What about TWO Jimnys...?

    Neighbours fence blew down, thankfully falling their side into their conservatory! I much prefer that than blowing and falling onto my Dolomite. 
    Driving along the M5 when the worst hit at 2pm. Quite an interesting experience driving over the Avonmouth M5 bridge with such strong winds...
    The Michelin CrossClimates paid themselves off though. Driving along with a lot of surface water without too much issue. Only sketchy bit was hitting big puddles at 50mph. Still carried along, just a bit of a steering wheel battle to keep it straight.

    M'coli reacted to Twin-Cam in Twin-Cam's Poverty Spec Metro   
    While it was on my mind I thought I'd talk about the biggest surprise I got when I started driving Melvin.
    The K-Series. Oh wow, the K-Series. Before you ask, no. The head gasket hasn't gone.
    But it's just so smoooooooooth. A proper little gem of an engine. Despite this one being a relatively simple, carburettor-fed, eight valve engine, it's remarkable.
    Not only does it produce an adequate amount of power (60 bhp), but it delivers that power in such a way that is endearing. It's amazingly rev-happy and a zingy little thing that makes a great high-pitched wail when you even look at the throttle pedal. The character of it perfectly suits the Metro. It's a fun, zippy little engine that feels refined.
    As I've mentioned, it's smooth. Like almost six-cylinder smooth. As Melvin only has a four-speed 'box, it does need to rev a bit on a motorway, about 3750 or so. But even at those revs it's quiet, refined, and just buzzes away up front with no dramas. Then at the end of the day I average 52 mpg on the motorway and 45 combined. Beautiful.

    There are traffic cameras around that part of the M8, perhaps they've not wiped the tapes yet - it should be easy enough to spot a dinged Corsa on them.

    Imps have been a constant in my life since I passed my test over 30yrs ago.  Go kart like and huge fun to drive - only ever had one head gasket failure too - back in 1990 taking a date to watch Pretty Woman at the cinema. I put the large Popcorn Bucket to good use afterwards filling up the cooling system.... she wasn't impressed.. 😂 😂

    Aren't an MGTF and an MR2 technically mid engined, along with most of the supercars listed at the end of barrett's post? 
    Just so we're all singing off the same hymn sheet, a rear engined car is usually defined as having the engine behind the gearbox, which is attached to the rear wheels, isn't it?

    Re: the Acclaim exhaust. Buy a can of zinc weld-through primer and paint the whole exhaust system with it, paying particular attention to the welds. It's much better than hi-temperature paint, IMHO.

    ^^^ The 2E2 on the B2 Pished Rat we had was a bastard for suddenly dropping power like it had iced up, and the wax-stat idle speed controller was shite too, but at least that gave you cruise control in 4th gear in a 30-zone.
     
    Loving the Healy-Rae stories - here's some nonsense from about 5years ago:

    Ha!  Sorry for the thread derailment but yes, Michael Healy Rae is the local TD and I always spend a happy few minutes taking the piss about him when I'm over there.  He does represent the interests of his constituents more than most parliamentarians though, he has spoken in favour of raising the drink drive limit and easing planning restrictions which are definitely the main local concerns.  He is even a roffle enthusiast although his fundraising one is currently being investigated by the guards.  https://www.rte.ie/news/campaign-daily/2020/0120/1108572-michael-healy-rae-raffle/
