I seem to have touched a raw nerve :oops:
Not really Rich, Pete explains that looking after his B/L car has resulted in a reliable, not to say enjoyable experience. But you can't deny that someone leaving a sandwich to rot in the air/heater duct is anything but deliberate, and childish. If only the sabotage was all so simple. At the risk of being repetitively boring, the case of the Morris Marina that kept pulling sharply to the left when braking, shows the depths of the stupidity of the workforce. The driver managed to pull into a dealer where it was discovered that one front wheel had a disc brake, whilst the other had a drum. How it ever got past pre-delivery inspection is beyond me.
Now if you want to touch a raw nerve, just try rubbishing my dream car: (models included)

As for not looking after the car, well you may be right about the grease monkeys,

That poor young chap ought to consider a more comfortable and appropriate form of footwear if he's going to last in the trade as a mechanic..

The badges fitted to Austin Maxis really should have been on the outside.

Damn! OK, so does anyone want an early Discovery TDi with a perfectly solid chassis that's still attached to the shell at all of the appropriate places? I can't help thinking that an Allegro is the only car which could replace the big 4x4 currently idle outside the house with an advanced case of ignition barrel collapse syndrome.

:oops:

Bournemouth though? Lovely place, but way too far to go. ;)

i once towed a trailer from Cinderford (Gloucestershire) up to Hull to see an Austin metropolitan, & came back empty as it had been butchered.. we didn't even offer a tenner for it in case the seller accepted.. on the plus side we did find a decent chippy...never mind that mazda i went to see :cry:
