Gents, just show them the new car we bought this month. Fiat Mobi Way, of Brazilian origin, far from the sumptuousness of American or European vehicles, but it is what our wallet can afford...

I'm still trying to figure out why he has a New Mexico sticker on the rear window.

I was waiting for that question.
With my wife we saw "Breaking Bad" six times (and it will not be the last), falling in love with the city where everything happens, Albuquerque.
We promised to also travel there sometime in our future and dreamed trip to Hawaii.
Dreaming is free!
 
Good choice. Wife and I spent several days in Albuquerque on a bit of a vacation several years ago. Had some of the best BBQ there of my life! It is a charming city. My wife is from West Texas so she's just a desert-girl at heart and loved the place.

Oh, if you go to Hawaii beware. I was in Maui about 3 yrs ago in Sept and it was 96(F) and 94 humidity. It was like walking around in a sauna. :whistleo:

Apologies if I've already posted these before.........here's a Swedish Army patrol vehicle converted from a standard road car - they used these in the 1950's to patrol the border with Russia - somehow this one found it's way to a field in the Cotswolds in England and I just happened to be out on the bike when I spotted it.....

1953 -1958 Volvo TP 21 4 WD, based on the body from a taxi cab they built (PV800) between 1938 and 1958.

So here's what I'm driving at the moment.......the utterly unexciting Honda Jazz!

This one I got in August - it's a 1.4 ES with 37k on the clock in very good condition, one previous owner with full Honda service history.

Since buying it I have invested in a full size spare wheel fitted with a new tyre as there was no spare when I bought it.

I've also had a Nextbase dashcam fitted, and invested in a set of LED headlight bulbs (https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/) - these are a good build quality and well worth the money.

I'm getting 49.4 mpg on mostly rural B roads, and although it won't pull the skin off a rice pudding, it's easy to see why so many have been sold - very easy to drive, excellent build quality and tardis like interior space.

It replaced an ageing Suzuki Swift diesel that was starting to cost money, so it was time to move it on. I chose the Jazz ( my son has one too) as I know someone who has an 05 plate one with 180k on the clock and it has proven to be completely reliable.

Our other car is a Suzuki SX4 1.6 2014 and the wife drives that - she loves it.

Very equal is your car we know here as Honda Fit. Or will it be the same?
I really don't know if I could drive on the right side, I would end up crashing safely.

Regarding the Suzuki SX4, it does not exist here.

Yes Louis,
The Honda Fit is the same as the Jazz.
Our SX4 is giving 48mpg which is not bad for a 1.6 litre petrol engine.
Thanks
Steve
