    Turns out you can fit quite a lot of Aussie Ford inside a Berlingo.

    A fruitful 620-mile drive to Essex and back. Rear doors, bootlid, headlining, four wheels and tyres, front bumper and various engine ancilliaries and interior oddments. Also got to drive an AU Ute with the Windsor V8 (taken from the XR8 that donated these parts). And a Panhard. It's been a good week.

    Power is exciting, don't get me wrong, but there's a time and a place for it, and I increasingly feel roads are not that. The Alpine GTA had about the perfect amount of power, but even with that I wasn't fully able to exploit it, and found myself the wrong side of the limit (off camera) on occasion. 
    There's definitely more fun in driving a slow car fast than fast car slow. Despite that, I am giving very serious thought to a 720 engine for the 2CV next year...

    Yes, I turned down an Audi S4 in New Zealand (I think it was an R4). Then the owner mentioned he also owned an Isuzu Mu Wizard and I was I WANT IT! Also got offered a more modern Audi recently with over 470bhp - just not right for the channel, so declined. More often, folk end up in my 'pending' email folder and I never actually find myself anywhere near them. Frustrating that, for both parties!

    Sorry WTC. We were away over the weekend and I've only just seen this.
    Classic rags are all about 'pickbait' which is why it's always a red MGB. Always. Videos are the same, but can throw up some odd curve balls. Yes, my red MGB video did quite well tis year, but so did the Renault Espace and Vauxhall Senator. How the frig are you meant to predict that? Driving a DS on 3 wheels? Almost 1 million views. Doing the same in my GSA? Utterly MEH. The Jaguar S-Type did quite nicely, but not as well as the Austin 3-Litre. Didn't predict that one either.
    Going clickbait would probably work, but I'm shit at it,  and people tend to see through it and get annoyed if it seems to clickbaity.
    I just like to engage with comments, and spend far too much of my life doing so. But I think there is a factor in the algorithm, so it'll promote a video with loads of comments ahead of one that doesn't. Though I'm not sure what happens if you disable comments...
     
    I think there's definitely something to be said for doing a video on something that isn't yet getting much love. The Berlingo videos have done surprisingly well, so I suspect a Saxo VTR video would be a great idea. I'd ruin it by arranging to do a 1.5D instead... Late 1980s/early 1990s is a massive area of growth at the moment - Retro Rides, Radwood, FOTU and the like tapping into that vein very nicely. I guess the problem for me is this growth is driving values up, so they're no longer the cheap cars HubNut was all about. Quite what the HubNut cars of ten years time will be, I've no idea at all.

    Cheers Maxxo. A few have said that. Quite relieving in a way!
    I'm still trying to understand how it works, but it clearly detects the current flow through the reverse lamps so the rear wiper comes on with the fronts when you reverse. But having two blown bulbs confuses it into thinking the reverse lights are on, so the rear wiper comes on with the fronts even going forwards...
    Anyway, all sorted now. 6000 miles covered since May, the subject of today's video.  Pic taken this morning when I was on kiddie taxi duty.

    Genuinely not interested. It's impossible to exploit such power on public roads, and so becomes an exercise in sheer frustration.

    Oh and thanks to everyone else for their comments. One rule I've always stuck to is to make videos I'd actually want to watch myself, so it has always been a bit personal to me, and kind of ignores what would probably do well for views. I love that freedom, even if it probably costs me...
    That's not to say I utterly ignore comments about what content people would like to see though, I enjoy that feedback loop and it does have an impact somewhere in the depths of my mind. The camping videos have been an interesting experiment - very Marmite in the comments but certainly not a direction we'd be jumping into full-time.
    I miss Collection Capers, but don't so much miss the results... (ie a load of cars I struggle to move on)

    Famously of course, James Hunt had an A35 for this very reason. 

     
    Amusingly, whilst googling the above I also found this. 

    He also had a very large and fast Mercedes but parked on bricks to slow it down. Or someone has pinched his wheels. 
    Apologies for thread hijack.

    Absolute power corrupts, absolutely. A very fast car will always bring out the pillock in every driver.
    Plus, going fast in a straight line gets old really quickly.
    Going quickly round the bends in a car that has no right being driven that way is always hilarious.
