Our Mick is undounbedly cheeky Beth, but I think he was refering to the Toyota CH-R Hybrid in Garish green I posted this time, not your Micra!

I have a £100, K12 who's tales are told in the thread "Bargain Basement Motoring!"

Best Xantia body kit I've seen in a while... Yellow needs to be a bit deeper for it to be perfect for me...

I rather like a GS in that shade of baby blue Neil :D

Sadly, waaaaayyyyy beyond my affordability :(

I fear the ownership of a GS will forever remain a dream...

I can hear Daffodil sighing with relief already :lol:

The green "Hybrid" still appealing to some buyers 18 years on.

In recent days I have seen 1st Gen Honda Insight's in the above shade of green, a nice red and just today, interesting because it was unusual, one in grey. Normally a rare on the road spot, although seeing as they had an all aluminium body and frame there may still be a fair crop of survivors. It was light and aerodynamic with a drag coefficient of 0.25.

Following your link to the Honda Insight Neil, I read down and found this chart at the bottom which was quite illuminating and worth highlighting for general interest:

The post in the "Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles still alive" thread would read "Not this one" for the original Honda FCX Clarity, but I see that in 2020 a new version is back again so yes Honda still have a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Still Alive, and you can get one in crimson pearl!
