Not a Capri, but an old Ford nonetheless. Curiously there is a mark 2 Granada in the latest electric MG whatever advert.

Don’t buy a MG the worse car I have ever driven , the pedals are all wrong the seat has no where to rest your arms also it drives like a duck in mustard .

Our bus broke and all they could find at the weekend was a MG so I said ok anything better then no car . So we got a new 20 plate MG as the guy said they can’t sell them so giving them away as hire cars .

Youre right, the clutch is nowhere to be seen.
I'm the one that leaves all those shoes in the carriageway.

I wasn't going to buy one, I just saw the advert on TV..... :lol:
You're right thigh, those SUV crossovers are terrible to drive. The worst I've ever driven is a Vauxhall Mokka auto. It seemed to wallow all over the place and the gearbox never seemed to be in the correct gear. Total pants !

I should, of course, have written your right thigh. It means good, like the cat's pyjamas. Use the phrase next time you're in a conversation with some young people and you'll have instant street cred...... :whistle:
