    It's shocking what some old codgers will buy.

    There's an old girl (a doddery one at that) near me with an EVO VII, and all it ever does is go 2 miles to Sainsbuys and back once a week.

    This car has never been out of second gear and never been part 3000 revs - IMO it's tantamount to auto-cruelty.

    There are plent of other nice cars she could have got, such as Proton, Kia, Perodua, Daihatsu or any of the other OAP value brands.

    Shouldn't be allowed

    You'll love this. Down near my parent's house is a blonde bird, maybe 35 years old. She drives a Supra Turbo. At 20mph. I shit you not. I've met her on many occasions, and always 20mph.

    There's also the wee old grannie who drives a gold V6 Laguna RXE. I see her in the village going to get her pension. The girl from the post office has to come out and physically drag her out of the car and more or less carry her into the post office. What a waste of a V6 engine, leather seats and all that climate control.

    My parents live in retirement central, so there's lots of tasty motors being driven by people who are well past their croak-by date.

    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?
