Could be very nice if it lost the wheels and the giffertastic array of pointless extra badges.

Not exactly gone to town on the description though

That's rather nice; lush colour, and the interior is totally reminiscent of my green one.  There's so much wrong though, and that's just what I can see at a glance!

One for the CF fanciers... complete with damp problems. Not sure why they've replaced the front bumper with some box section off cuts though!

On the plus side, they've written what it's supposed to be on the back in case you forget. Digging the arrow indicators too!

I foolishly did not heed the warning. 

I must admit a pet hate of mine is naming cars. 

A mate of mine used to do it to every fucking car he owned and would then only refer to the car as whatever stupid fucking name he'd given it which infuriated me even more. 

"I'll come over in brooklyn later"

"What the fucks brooklyn?" 

" my new car, the numberplates E354 BRN so I named it brooklyn cos that's what the numberplate spells out". Oh yeah of course 😢😢😢😢

Every fucking car and a different stupid fucking reason why, numberplates, something it rhymed with, a mate who had one ten years previous etc etc. 

Still, nice to see an acclaim still going.

Had a lift in one of these today and totally fell for it.

Anyone want to talk me into/out of this one?

Neighbour had one from new for about 15 years. She loved it and never seemed to have any problems. I don't know exactly which engine but it was diesel. It was written off when parked outside her daughter's house and a Ford Focus drove into it. That would've been about 18 months ago. I never went in it but I started thinking it looked a bit rubbish but by the end had some real respect for it. Missed seeing it on her drive although I kind of fancied the Renner Clio that she bought new to replace it

Those have been getting cheap for a while now - I've seen a few usable ones go for 3 figures on eBay.

I had no idea they were that cheap now. Am I right in thinking that they’re just a Punto pulling a funny face? They can’t be that scary or expensive to look after if they are

I used to be absolutely mad keen on those Ambassadors. Now I hate them!!! Miserable interiors, asthmatic thrashy engines and a crap gearbox. Still like the wedge shape though and I would like to drive one with regassed spheres and new tyres, I reckon it would be a whole 'new sensation' in ride quality

An acquaintance of mine has just finished restoring a Ambassador VDP, spent an absolute fortune on a professional body repaint. I dare say the velour seats in one of these would be much more appealing.

I think you’d have to throw your bedding and your clothes away after a night in that silverfish infested poultice.

Smoll French cars are for winners, especially in silly colours (I love that shade of green).

Is it just me or do smoll French cars always seem to have massive armchairs for seats? They're great.

To be fair, I've stayed in hotels where I've had similar thoughts. Not mentioning any names.

"Everything's Premier but the price" my fucking arse...

That's only round the corner from @warninglight and tbh not an unrealistic trip for me either.  And I like it a lot.  MoT till August even!  IIRC that upholstery was named Paprika.

Talks are in progress.  How the hell I'm going to pay for it (if it happens at all) I have no idea, but I don't believe in crossing bridges before I get there...
