I was thinking, that seeing I have been car free for so long, when the day comes that I need something to get to the shop, I'll get one of these.

no depreciation or hi-tech worries, tax, mot. Cheap insurance, fast enough for urban traffic, everything you need to keep them running for not much money. My mate runs an Ulster regularly, like this one.

Great for the summer...perhaps not so good during the winter...especially up there. Brrrrrr!large_Cold.gif.bd384f0503372fee11f1734d48e1d9ab.gif

I've had this now for 2.5 years and still really enjoy driving it.

1.0 litre, 3 cylinder turbo and even cleaner than @mach 0.0013137 Matiz at 108 g/km of carbon dioxide emissions versus the Daewoo's 160 g/km. :thumbsup:

Oh and £20 tax. Boom!

Toyota auris hybrid 1.8 for me. 99 g/km carbon & £0 tax!:teethsmile:

I have just changed to a Beemer 530d on a 66 plate. First impressions are excellent!    :thumbs_up:

Me too! A 64 plate M-Sport with all the trimmings and it’s an absolutely fantastic motor in every respect. Just toying with the idea of a stage 2 remap and squeezing 340BHP out of it but not sure if it’ll be too much of a tyre shredder :laughing2dw:

Boom! I actually work at the factory where your car was made. 

Nice one! Near Burton on Trent? 

Great car for what it is and if you like me you hate giving this shambles of what we call a government anymore money than we have it serves me greatly.

Decent fuel consumption always around 55 mpg avg which is pretty decent for petrol car.

I also mentioned that the Reliant SS1 was in need of brake repairs. I completed this ages ago & the car is mobile once more & still fun to drive - no plans to sell it anytime soon

I had a Sabre 6 and a Scimitar, they both had their shortcomings, but the Scimitar was a good car once it was sorted. I never did eliminate the flex squeeks, or get a radio to function interference free, but it was reliable. My mate still runs one, and converted it from Webber to two big SU carburetors. It runs much smoother, and gives better mpg. The down side is the carbs have to come off in order to get the rocker covers off for maintenance.

my dad had one of these in the 60's got it stuck in the tram tracks in blackpool and the roof blew into the sea. I think you had to cock your leg over the front to start it. he had a BSA Bantam when he was 16 in about 1960 but my gran (mums mum) fell off the back so he had to get a 'car'

In the same period from 2014 I’ve had 17 cars, I sense I have a problem more with cars than watches

As you will see and I will let you pick, one didn’t last long at all, the burgundy Merc was a company car, it’s the A7 at the minute

Some expensive stuff there. How did you like the big xj. I had a 350 previous model and found it too light on the front end. I fancy a 2010 on xj. Been looking at petrol 7 bms too.
