    PHEW! That's OK then. Mines the Citroen Poxy Belingo 2.0. I was informed that the 1.6 was about as reliable as a Triumph Stag.

    There have been many reported cases of highwaymen and footpads lurking on the A1 of recent times. Hope (for your sake) that they didnt steal his spanners. :xsad:

    It all depends. If it's the famous Dick Turpin of historical legend, then no, sorry, but he's dead. However, if it's Richard Turdpin, famed Lincolnshire AA employee and re-starter of Citroen Poxy's, then yes, you have a chance. :xThumb:

    Yes mate. But for once, I'm sort of lost for descriptive words. I think the average was around 15,000 miles from new before the con-rod popped out to shout 'HI'.

    Oi I have a Stag and I can tell it is so reliable I trust it to get me anywhere within a 10 mile radius with only a small tool kit.

    One thing about the stag.. You always know the fuel gauge is working ok, cos you can actually watch it drop if you get even slightly exuberant on the loud peddle !!
