Bloody hell!! I don't think the RCZ could manage 660k! Your lucky if you get to 66k without any major problems! That's progress for you. :eusa-think:

1982 Vauxhall cavalier. Had another 2 after that including the Sri 130. Bloody loved that car. But not the fuel consumption, that at that time was 40.2 a litre !!!! Mpg was eye watering being a so called 'boy racer'.

Hi
Mine was a 1955 Hillman Husky, side valve engine, and before someone posts a wisecrack I did not buy it new. In fact I did not buy it, my elder brother gave it to me. When I sold it, believe it or not it was used in a robbery. I had to pick the guy out from the mug shots held by the police. :crazy:

Mine was a very rusty 1000cc Fiat Panda. Bought for £100 and modified with a new tape deck, 6 speakers, new wheel trims and filler and mesh.
