I wonder how the market would respond to one with hogged-out rear wheelwells, like that one.

What an unusual assortment of vehicles. Why are they even parked this way?

In any case, I call the '57 Plymouth, rough as it looks.

On a van with side windows? You're doing it wrong!

I wonder why he didn't do well in the Magnum. It was a B-body like every other Mopar he ran, and more aerodynamic than most, too. With the very obvious exception of the Superbird, of course.

Since I work a TV job, I don't see myself being out of work any time soon. Otherwise, I'm just irritated at the closed restaurants and dipshit hoarders buying up all the toilet paper.

Not through the official website, but you can find the test results on more than one website just by Googling the car's registration number.

Until the last couple of years, I used to see at least one of these nearly every time I left the house. I can't really remember the last one I saw, though.

A DVLA check shows it's a 1984 with the 2.5 diesel, with (naturally) an export marker. Its last road tax was due in September of 2012. It's probably been in the country for about 10 years, give or take a couple.

It failed its penultimate MOT test on November 20, 2008, for the following:
- Offside Front Headlamp not working on main beam (1.7.5a)
- Offside Rear Rear fog lamp not working (1.3.2b)
- Front passenger door cannot be opened from outside the vehicle (6.2.B.1b)
- Offside Rear Vehicle structure has excessive corrosion which adversely affects braking or steering (6.1.A.1)
- Rear Vehicle structure has excessive corrosion which adversely affects braking or steering (6.1.A.1)

All of these issues must've been fixed, since it passed its final MOT with no notes or failures two days later.

A video shot last year with the car in action:

The engine is a 3.5 liter unit built by Isuzu, and it sounds surprisingly great.

Also, apparently the car is still FWD. GM built a different Beretta test mule with RWD, and it's lead to several people confusing the two.

Back in the days when a driver-quality vintage A-body of any type could be had for less than $5,000.

Hell, less than $10,000, for that matter.
