Looks like it's the Cayenne or the Rover. The Rate is not really grocery friendly. That is unless you can survive on a chicken sandwich and a six pack of V8.

 

Time to get crackin on the Stratos. Perfect daily driver. No one will want to share the passenger seat so you have all that spare room:)

If I see this sometime in the coming days, I'll know who it is.

I chickened out and took the Cayenne (I remembered the R8 has the wrong tires on it for that sort of thing), but it did a good job. It really is a great bad weather car.


Kind of going back to the cheap exotic car thing I mentioned earlier, can you really buy a complete Ferrari for less than a used Fiesta? Yes, yes you can! Look and behold the, umm... magnificence. The great 1975 Ferrari Dino 308 GT4, for $12,000 (includes freight).



Does it run? Yes, yes it does. It doesn't drive, mind you, the gearbox is ruined, but the engine does run. The most important thing is that it's 100% complete and the interior isn't horribly mangled. We can fix all that's wrong and make it better than ever (for far more than the thing is worth) and that's what we're going to do. I'm sure the garage will love it (and by "love it" I mean hate it), what a wonderful surprise for them. biggrin.gif

How can toyota get this advert so wrong? Australia never got the AE86 officially :angry_face: 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Also they somehow teleport from the Sydney harbour bridge to a tourist drive an hour or so away......

Aside from the rubber bumpers, I've never actually minded the 308 much. Sure, it's not even remotely a good car and it's far too aspirational for what's actually inside, but you can't help but love such a pathetic attempt from a company as supposedly infallible to the public eye as Ferrari is. It's a testament to what happened to the industry in the 70s, and that gives it a weird sort of charm.

Anyone else surprised by Ferrari shenanigans on Top Gear? Such a petty small minded bunch of arrogant ********.
