The new car for the wife...

I've always kinda liked the Signum too, I know it's only a Vectra underneath, but it's a bit different and was quite a nice looking car for it's day.

I like the Signum, they look like bargain barges to me +++

 

One line car reviews?

 

Porsche 968 Sport: Nice old and quick sportscar with RWD and pop-up headlights.

Mazda MX-5: Nice old and rusty sportcar with RWD and pop-up headlights.

Sinclair C5: Knackered old deathtrap with zero redeeming qualities.

C63 AMG coupe - loud, thirsty, beautifully put together, masterpiece of an engine, should be faster.

As per the title; I'd quite happily swap a new car for the wife.

It's rideable, and the kids have used it , but now it's an annoyance taking up space. I was going to take it along to the Ashby Folville night for a laugh but they've since stopped. My old Royal Enfield bike is a more pressing restro priority. I love that thing but it needs some TLC.

BMW X5 4.4 - great if you fancy the girl who works at the petrol station.

Was it too popular for it's own good?

Ford Focus - 5 doors, an asthmatic engine and ISOFIX, the perfect starter kit for the new family man

LCR - old and sometimes leaky but mechanically tip top, pretty fast and I love it, plus driven carefully will return over 35 mpg; a true legend of a car

M3 - clean. Very very clean.

Yes, sadly, it was a fantastic event but gre to be far too big, then the chavs started attending, a Police helecopter turned up, and the village committe who organised it had enough and closed it. A real shame, it was great fun.
