Re: Deadliest car in the world
Wasn't it the Allegro's suspension based on moggy's that the front wheels fell off of ??
iirc the wheels fell off early Allegro's because when wheel hubs were removed at the garage, on re-fit they were torque-ing up the hub nut too tightly, the same as the 1100/1300's. On the Allegros the hub nut was just to be tightened 'hand-tight' before final adjustment. This was a big press story in the past.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
