yes the cars were crap, but in fairness most of them were designed pre-nationalization. the allegro, marina and the princess being the biggest turds. The montego which was designed during nationalization was actually a pretty good car and I had a couple of them as pool cars when I worked for Jaguar. And don’t get me started about how bad those cars were during the 80s
I had a bright orange Allegro. I actually drove it to a local inspection garage and when it surprisingly passed I asked the owner how much he would give me for it.
300 quid and a long walk home. One of the best decisions I made in my life.
