Along with the Pantera and the M715, the Streiter is one of my favourite drip feed cars from the new update. The Sentinel Classic is pretty cool too.
Granada for spoiler duty.
Post other things the Yanks can’t have.
All three celebrities that appear in this bit (John Humphrys, Fiona Bruce, and Dermot Murnaghan) are former/current newscasters. I have no idea if this was intentional or not, and in fact I’m not sure why I even care or noticed in the first place.
Cavalier for potential spoilers.
No, not the North American one we all know and “love”. This is a Chevy Chevair (not to be confused with another previous Chevrolet compact, the Corvair), a rebadged Mark I Vauxhall Cavalier/Opel Ascona for the South African market. Unlike the Mark II Cavalier/Ascona, the Mark I was not a J-Body like the North American…
Why the fucking Jesus would you not sell the TourX in Canada? Do you hate money? Do you hate Canada? Do you hate Canadian money? I’ve got absolutely no logical explanation as to why this car would not sell well in Canada. Hey Buick, fuck off.
“I don’t know WHAT this man is playing at, there’s no way, surely the judges must come down like a tonne of bricks on that. Carrying bikes on top of a car is not a sportsmanlike way to run this race”
The fact that Cheese & Onion chips aren’t available widely in Canada. Lays had them for a few months, but then they got rid of them. It’s by far the best chip flavour. We scramble to help you guys in both world wars and THIS is how you repay us? Unacceptable, Britain.
This is a 2005 Proton Saga LMST. The Saga LMST was introduced in 2003 and made until 2008. That doesn’t sound that weird, until you realise that it’s actually basically just a bodykit slapped onto a first gen Saga, a car that was introduced all the way back in 1985.
The LDV T60. You might recognise the name LDV from the British commercial vehicle manufacturer of days past that was originally part of British Leyland. These days, they’re owned by the Chinese. They still make mostly vans, but they just introduced the small T60 pickup. It’s aimed squarely at trucks like the Great…
The Citroen E-Mehari. A modern, electric, interpretation of the original 2CV-based Mehari. I had no idea this was an actual production car. I want one. Top speed is a highway-capable 110 kilometres an hour (70 miles an hour for The Americans and The British) and production is limited to 1000 units.
All Ford operations in the British Empire/Commonwealth outside of Britain were divisions of Ford Canada (which for a long time was a completely separate company from the US company) until Ford Canada became a division of Ford’s US operations.
Look at all that WOOL. The Japanese have no time for show-offy, nouveau-riche, cold in the winter, hot in the summer leather. Leather is a terrible material for seating and I have no idea why it’s become so popular.
Since the next Commodore is Regal-based, I predict that we’ll get a LaCrosse-based Holden Caprice.
First Woodward’s, then Eaton’s, then Zellers, now Sears. Not surprising, because every time I walked into a Sears* it was like travelling back in time to 2004.
