The Worst Car I Ever Owned — The sills ruster out, the inner wings rusted out, the suspension needed to be replaced, and I blew 2 engines. It was an absolute dog of a car.

Pros: None

Cons: It was cheap(ish)

Shame Vauxhall Never Fitted An Engine To It Worthy Of Its Chassis — Acceleration is crap, brakes are good but handling is the best. It has never needed much work on it since I put it on the road again after 10 years in a wet garage. Now it is only taken out in the sun. I refuse to take her out in the rain because she is mine!!! Plus, it only ever sunshines here in France!!! ;-p

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Sticks to the road like the poverbial.....

Cons: no reasons to avoid it accept that the engines are crap at best!!
