On The Buses ...or not

Mine... I hate it as it's like a frikkin van... But i love it too, it even has electric sliding doors

I think sliding doors will become more common, safer too as space becomes tighter. Electric doors are quite common in USA.

And ... there's plenty to be said for an older car.

I've had two older cars and one almost new ... I preferred the older ones.

You don't mind a lil scratch here or there, as they already have them!! And when they don't break down, you feel a sense of pride that this clapped out old wreck is plucky enough in it's old age to still get you there.

You warm to it, you and your rusty heap against the world, it has charm and character. And if you bump it - well it's recording it's history.

Unless a new car is perfect then it's always going to be a let down.

If an old car starts first time ... it makes you smile

A bit like me that

THIS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN is exactly like my first car

A Nissan Sunny 1.5sgl Liftback (mine was in silver)

I loved that car - it was huge, could carry a fridge in the back - no problem.

It was solid - you could even punch the dashboard, which I never did in anger, just tried it once to test its integrity ... it passed.

But best was the soft n bouncy suspension - loved that.

Someone crashed into the back of my Nissan - so a mate checked it out by looking in the boot for internal damage. Then slammed the boot lid ... a huge plate of rust fell off the underside and onto the floor

It kept going without a hitch for another 6yrs
