I currently don't have a car. My last one, an old-style Proton 1.5 SE MPi, seriously failed it's MOT. And I mean seriously
! For starters, the near-side inner wing was collapsing under the weight of the battery and both rear shock absorbers were totally s*!*!*d. The previous year it passed with flying colours! Gah!
I currently drive my wife's car, when I have a need - a Vauxhall Astra Merit Auto - with large P-plates on display as she is still coming to terms with British driving standards etc.
I have previously had a Nissan Cherry Coupe (Capri-style, before being updated into the Fiesta-style hatch) which was great fun, an MG Maestro EFi (hugely under-rated) and, my fave, a Vauxhall Carlton Diplomat (all electric, heated leather seats, trip computer, cruise control, 10-disc CD player and bags and bags (and bags) and bags(!) of room to spread out and enjoy the ride. Sadly, one frosty morning, taking a very tight turn the rear wheels lost traction... Hello wall!
I pity everyone learning to drive today. All learner cars are so easy to drive. I learned in my fathers Austin Princess!
What do I want next? Something I cannot afford! Even by being reasonable. Maybe next year.
