I had a new 1984 Astra estate diesel, it was the slowest thing I have drove to this day apart from a donkey I once tried to coerce into movement!. On the motorway overtaking was like a military operation, It had to be planed carefully and at least a mile before you attempted the maneuver to avoid a pile up. Starting up in the morning would result in a black mushroom like cloud that covered the neighbors cars in soot to which they would be fully aware because the clatter from the oil burning hulk would shake them from their pits . That thing has tainted my opinion of diesels ever since
Currently in carl66's garage:
Renault Scenic & Daihatsu Grand Move & vespa Douglas 1981
