#20, Ah yes. Which can be a problem for dream cars such as a Corvette and Aston Martin sometimes xD Whereas the humble Lanos would soldier on

In India, Daewoo is a luxury brand, from what I gathered last time I was down there.

#22, I'm not entirely surprised by that. You look at an Indian road and it will be filled with Ambassadors (or Morris Oxfords) and that car is about 40-50 years old so something like this would be considered luxurious to them.

#23, BUT if you have someone doing your driving for you, like a vast majority of the car owners in India, the back seat of the old Ambassador is a damned comfy place to be. Except the new ones. Knowing what they look like makes you sick. Fuck have they managed to make them ugly. *Goes off to hunt for pics* Also now it's mainly Suzuki Altos and the local knock offs that make up the largest proportion of cars cruising down the mean Indian streetzzz

#24, Fair enough. You know more about it then I do ^^; I guess it was about time for some of the Ambassadors to be retired from service anyway

Did spend a lot of time in my grandfathers old one back when I was a kid. Then when I was lookin for a replacement for my old car I came across a 50's Morris Oxford in mint condition for a ridiculously low price. I was *this* close to buying it with visions of 308 Holden V8 transplantage. They still make the old Ambassador. Just uglified.

#26, Nice. Would have been a wolf in sheep's clothing if you had bought it and done that. And I wouldn't have imagined Indian car styling to be on a par with the rest of the world. I presume you're familiar with Tata who are an Indian car manufacturer. They made an SUV called the Safari and a pick up truck from what I've seen on the roads over here

#27, Yup. Sure am. Didn't MG sell the Indica rebadged the CityRover for a while before poor sales killed that off?
I was actually pretty intent on getting a V8 for a bit. Almost got me a 350 Chev'd Jag XJ6 around then too, think there's a picture of that on here somewhere. Then my dad said he was gonna upgrade cars and offered his one cheap to me. Manual, twin turbo, 280 horsepower, cheap, couldn't say no.

Indeed, there are a lot of things that could be done with an Amby that don't involve the stock powertrain :)

#28, I'd love a Jag with a 350; they're really hard to come by here in California because of smog laws. It would have to be a 1975 or older car (smog exempt) to be able to perform an engine swap like that. Last one I saw was a few years ago at a car show.

#29, Edit: NOTHING should be done to an Amby that involves the stock powertrain. Just lookin up some specs. The most powerful engine on offer today, the 2 litre petrol makes...wait for it....74 horsepower. Gross weight: 1554 kg. Thats what...47 hp/ton. I'm not even gonna start on the 51 hp diesel that weighs a hundred kilos more and actually has less torque than the petrol mill.

Edit: re the Jag. The soundtrack had bought me over. But the not so good aspects weren't that good at all. THEN the OMG electricals started playing up. Speedo was goin haywire, indicators stopped working intermittently...lot more hassle than I was willing to take on.

#28, Yeah, they did. I've seen a few around but it flopped, not helped by Top Gear's spy camera review. They only did it because Rover wouldn't let them have one to test as they knew it would have the piss taken out of it. My dad had an XJ6 at one point. I will ask him what engine it had and what year it was made

#19, Well... there is some X factor as well... if a car as that certain something that makes you love it, it can be a pile of junk and you won't care.
Guess old small British sports cars and older Alfas fall into that category. Unreliable and complicated but they have that... something. Something that brings a smile on the owners face as soon as he sits down in the car and closes the door to the outside world where 'good' but boring cars rule.
