I keep thinking TVR Cerbera as a practical replacement. :)

Do I need help?

 ;D

Yes.


Roof.....four seats......equals practical..... ::)

Build quality to rival your average amateur built Robin Hood.

Highly stressed engine designed by a couple of whippet-shaggers in a shed.

Sounds eminently sensible to me
. ;D

OK...you've convinced me.

I shall end my driving days with an Astra derv. :'( :'( ;D

Speaking of TVR.

What could possibly go wrong with a 25 year plastic old car built in Blackpool by a workforce 'high' on industrial strength solvent. :D

If nothing else you'll get to meet new and interesting people. Probably wearing RAC branded fluorescent jackets   ;D

You'd best be on your guard behind the wheel though, hopefully the Jaaag's traction control and nice progressive handling hasn't made you soft :D

The Macca F1 tipped the scales at around 1100KG and had 627 BHP. Pretty sure it didn't have much in the way of ESP/traction control.

.......which may be why Mr Bean ended up in a ditch. :D

they're no less reliable than a Boxster, small 911 or M3. But most of the bits are cheaper and easier to fit. And you can use better glue than TVR did on the interior :y

Years back when you could have a tour around the factory I went with a few lads from work. The smell of resin/solvent in workshop where they laid up the GRP was unbelievable ... no idea how they managed a shift in there.

Maybe it was a nice place to work and the daze passed by in a pleasant kind of haze?   :)
