All old cars are shit. They're a headache but, as old cars are an absolute pittance why are we even discussing shit like Mondeos and French crap? They were recyclable junk when they were new and of no fucking interest to anyone with a pulse.

Someone I know has recently bought a 51 plate A8 2.8 Quattro for 600 quid and it's clean. It might go wrong. In fact it probably will. But it was 600 quid and I'd rather push that that own a car that is right at the bottom of the food chain. Have some ambition people FFS.

So you succeed?

No wonder you're always touring abroad, scattering mobiles like confetti.

You've also failed at failing with this forum, despite the crap jokes designed to drive people away.

Yeah but what mpg does that get? Will I knock the exhaust off when I visit my friend with his potholes farm driveway? Can I put large objects in the boot? What are spare part prices like? Are they an easy DIY fix? Nice cars but not all that useful to me.

I want a compact, economical, four wheel drive, comfortable, van, with good load capacity and a dog guard.
But I have a boring Kia Picanto and an Mx5.
