I saw a Carlton in Spain recently; not the Lotus one but a normal 2.0. It was a Champagne colour and in excellent condition, which is a miracle for a 25yr Opel - and indeed an even greater miracle for any car of any age in Spain.
Anyway, it struck me as an absolutely rational piece of design. It looked like a lot of thought - if not necessarily style - had gone into it. I wouldn’t want one, but it actually looked rather ‘intelligent’; even against a backdrop of knackered Peugeots, Renaults and a Citroen saloon so breathtakingly ugly I didn’t bother to check k out the model.
A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.
Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.
