I was looking at an elderly but nice looking Vauxhall Victor a long time ago and the salesman started it up for me, blue smoke poured out of the exhaust and the oil filler cap which doubled as the engine breather.

He told me they all do that !

I did meet a driver once who told me his dipstick was to short to reach the oil in his engine.
Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
