Nope, not that one certainly. I actually like them because they are so wackily bizarre...I'd have one... For some unexplained reason they have actually grown on me of late. Should I see the doctor?

But that other thing - what on earth is it? Now that is horrid in the extreme...

May I suggest a Chesterfield, paired with Regency side table? Your road tax will be almost nil, and comfort is indisputably lounge-like. :P
Nice plan - I'd love a Chesterfield. :)

Oh no, Jim. The Nissan Puke.... really?

Will I be completely shamed if one of these were to appear in my signature? Major want.

Too late I'm afraid.

Do you make the Nissan Puke up your way Steve?

It's OK, I was only winding you all up... Puke is an excellent moniker for it...

If I really had to run a modern it would be a C4.

What's there not to like about them? I won't sit on anything else. Car, sitting room armchair and computer chair - all leather :)

Indeed, quite. My daughter has one...

It's a horrid little thing really. It has the most wooden steering I've ever known. Absolutely nil feedback between the steering wheel and the roadwheels. It's unnerving :twisted: Still, for Siany it's really just the job for learning on and buzzing around town and she loves it to bits...

Yes, factory is only a couple of miles from me and the damned things are everywhere.
