Breaking News: Newly-formed Stellantis have announced a merger with GM, Volkswagen Group, Tata, Nissan, Ford, Fuji Heavy Industries, Honda, Samsung, Mercedes-Benz and BMW to form a conglomerate called 'One Car'.

They will make one shared platform upon which all non-Communist and non-weirdo cars will be now based.

A chairperson said earlier "We aim control every facet of your miserable existence".

Google responded by saying "Oi, no you don't, that's our job".

Some eerie celebrity facts.

  1. Freddy Mercury died while being driven by his parents to a Queen gig in a Mercury Cougar. Cause of death? Mercury poisoning from his well documented love of tuna.
  2. Tupac Shakur died from cyanide poisoning, due to his love of repairing the bullet holes in his automobile with Two Pack paint, which contained poisonous isocyanites. Tupac was too gangster to wear a mask.

In 1978, 29 Rover SD1s were inadvertently built with both right-hand-drive and left-hand-drive.  These cars somehow found their way out to the UK Rover dealers and were sold off before salesmen realised there had been errors at Solihull.

Rover tried to recall the cars for modification (customers were given the option of retaining either rhd or lhd) but most customers declined as the cars were ideal for trips abroad.

The Alvis Stalwart was originally intended to be called the Alvis Stardust, unfortunately it was felt to be too similar to the new stage name of a pop singer so it was renamed.

Strangely one was supplied to a music artist in Nashville who had it sent to be trimmed by Cadillac, intending to use it at promotional events. Unfortunately it proved to be not suitable for extended road use and the eventual fate of the Elvis Stalwart is still unknown
