The most ridiculous review

Post by ESSEXV6ESSEX » Sat Jan 02, 2021 4:19 pm

See what you guys think of this. Opel Manta nearly 8k when new, LS capri not quite 5k. One is a slightly spec"d up base model, the other is top of the range model. Now F-*ff and find a 2.8i Special which would have had a showroom face off and come back with an answer. You don't need a tea shelf in a capri, just a torch light to find the lucky girls knickers before the cops arrive!!!

Next week he's doing another 80"s review, this time it's Hot Hatches, he is going to pit the MK1 Vauxhall Astra 1600LS against the Ford Escort S1 RS TURBO. I mean they are practically the same arent they, both FWD, both 1600 engines, both hatchbacks.

I did think that I am only 10 mins away from where that guy was and could have given him the keys to mine ? But it’s winter with salt on the roads so the manta will full apart soon :lol: :lol: .

I saw it yesterday.
It's true that he mentioned few times difference between specifications (Manta GT/E top of the range, Capri 1.6 LS the exact opposite in that time), but it would be better if he chose Capri 2.0 S with Recaros and then compare.
Or if Manta was top of the range, he could choose top of the Capri range too: 3.0 S or 2.8i. :lol:

And about that tea shelfs, he has propably an obsession with them. Looking for them almost in every video... :)
