A friend of mine used to own a repair garage where he done MOT failure work like welding on new parts that had rusted off or patching rusty holes. He said if it wasn't for Ford, Vauxhall, Rover and Peugeot he'd be out of a job :classic_laugh:

lucky if a  car didn't need a bit of welding back in the day..... very rare now.

Also had a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger when I was a kid. This thing towed motocross bikes on a trailer all across the Midwest USA when I was racing back then...

Not been into cars like i am with bikes their just tools to do a job for me but i do miss my old range rover, we had some great fun in between the constant repairs

After the demise of the T/A, I had a Fiat X-1/9. The single biggest turd of a car in history. Had it for about a year and it caught on fire twice!

Yes everything is a lot better now he was in business about 20 years ago and he said 90% of the stuff that he worked on for rust and mechanical problems was Ford, Vauxhall, Rover and Peugeot back then that's why I've never owned one of them

All I can add is my experience of Peugeot.. aaaargh never again....... 😂

We bought a 6 month old Honda Civic about 21 years ago for the wife and at the same time her friend bought a new Peugeot 306cc convertible thing, she thought it was great and had great pleasure in telling us we had bought an old mans car. The first year she owned it she done more miles in a courtesy car then her own because it was in the garage being repaired so often. she got shot of it after the first year we traded in our civic for another 15 years later still a good car, I'll take an old mans car over the piece of shit she had any day :classic_laugh:

Oh god they were absolute shite. So faulty and after I bought it I discovered the dealers were absolute aholes. Their reputation for being unpleasant and unhelpful was widespread but then again so were the Ford dealers. I cant stand car snobbery. By the time my car was 5 years old Id lost count of how many people asked me what my next car would be, like I needed to discard a used tissue or something?!

The dealer she was taking it too didn't have a clue either they just kept changing parts hoping it would fix it none of them new what was actually wrong with it. We are entering our 6th year with the new Civic cant see us changing it until its broke but i'm like that with everything my old 4x4 i owned for 17 years and most of my bikes I've owned for over ten years.

Ohh I have had all of those and still have a Vauxhall, having said that I did do quite a bit of welding and repairing them. 👍🤣
