Pushing my Luck?
When i was in the UK I bought me Rover 75. People said, that I must be mad. They are rubbish, they brake down a lot, they are unreliable... blah blah blah.
Indeed, the 75 was probably the best car I've ever driven and the 2.5V6 is a dream.
But over here, with CO2 based car tax, they disown you. So she has to go and I bought me a 2002 147 1.6 5 door.She comes in a dark blue with a purple hue and she's got 40000 miles.
She'll get a new cam belt, new brake disks and an aircon re-gas and she'll cost me less than €6.500.
I assume, that this is a reasonable price...
Anyway, this unmentionable J.C. from Top Gear sez, that you can't call yourself a real petrolhead unless you've owned an Alfa.
After owning (in alphabetical order) Audi, BMW, Nissan, Mercedes, Opel, Rover and Volkswagen, I might be a real petrolhead now. Not that I care much about what J.C. sez...
