    If it doesn't fit in my wagon it goes on the roof. 5 metre lengths of wood do the paintwork no favours and I once got a rabbit hut the size of some garden sheds on my first 9-5.

    Just need enough blue rope :D

    I thought that, until I bought a 6ft+ bookshelf, and it was about two inches too long. Maybe I could have bungeed the boot shut, but I had a 100 mile plus journey, didn't fancy it. Damn thing was literally two inches too long in every orientation (as the actress said to the bishop), the only way to get it in would have involved being decapitated if I braked...

    Mind you, it's still the only thing!

    Dear Mark,

    Not if you live in a small village with one bus to the nearest big city ever day and another bus back the next day.

    Okay, I badly want one of these, any one I don't care, I just want one. My Dad had a Anglia in that pea green with a white stripe down the side. Being the super model it had ......... a heater. Good old MYR 543 D if I remember. I caught sight of it many years later and someone had painted the white stripe red.

    One of the reasons mine had a tow-bar. Then you can fit the universe and its wife.

    And a cow.

    I have quite good memories of this car although my dad got rid of it around 1972 ish. How I wish we had kept it.
    This was from the slides I have just had digitised and is of my dad and the Rover 75 (I think) around 1963.

    I daren't say any car other than our existing model in case she somehow finds out about it and breaks down in a huff. She's called Bella and has been magnificent and needs to continue being magnificent for the foreseeable.

    I have a friend who works in the development team at Ford.
    They were trying to come up with a cheap saloon - a cross between the Sierra and the Fiesta.
    They code-named it the Siesta.
    He asked if I'd like a test drive, but I wasn't sure.
    So he suggested I sleep on it...

    Renault 21 which seems strange because I'm just a wee thing, but I loved driving it!

    I shouldn't tempt fate either but I'd like to see Top Gear test the fastest way to get from my couch to bike trails. Chris Harris in a Ferrari GTC Lusso (or FF would do), Matt LeBlanc in an old Saab aero estate or Rory Reid in a shiny new Audi estate. I reckon the Saab would get an early lead as the bike can be thrown in whole, the front wheel has to come off the bike to get it in a Ferrari and the Audi gets scratched lifting the bike on to the roof because they don't want to mess up the interior and then gets disqualified when the bike falls off trying to make up time on the road.

    Who would win? I think the bike trails would have to be more than 16 miles away for a Ferrari driven by a racing driver to make up enough time by speeding and then when you are cold, wet and muddy after riding who wants to be outside dismantling a bike and getting changed before cranking up the aircon and heated leather seats.....not me anyway!:D

    Sounds like a Saab 900 or 9000

    Having owned both I can't say they were Saab's finest couple of hours. The 95 and 96 were amazing in their day and the 99 was pretty damned good (we ran ours for 14 years). My wife ran a 9-3 convertible for several years but then the electronics started to go and the repairs mounted up so it had to go...
