Nice. I wouldn't have a Roller any newer than that, because I am not a footballer, Arab, drug dealer or pimp.

What a pity it's not lit underneath, with hydraulic suspension, so it can jump up and down at traffic lights.

As previously recommended to me by SNACR, the forum at autoshite.com is dedicated to spotting, buying and running once unexceptional but now rare cars like these.

I just bought myself a 1996 Peugeot 106 diesel which I plan on keeping on the road as long as possible :) .

My neighbour has one she bought from a farmer, it was stored in a barn for years and had only a few thousand km on the clock. I asked her what it was like "like a 20 year old peugeot 106 that has been left in a barn far too long". In other words, not that great.

As far cars: a renault 5 and a Citroen DS in the last week.

131,000 miles on mine, it's still running fine. By running fine I mean that it just about moves the car at an acceptable pace and is extremely miserly with fuel.

Edit: the boot floor is covered with mastic and the sides are a bit rusty. But it's far enough from any suspension mounting point to be a moot point until I clean it up, think.

The 15 IDI`s sufferd  with head gasket problems as they were dry liners the bottom seals perish/ go soft the head gasket goes , IIRC the last of the metros used the same engine ....ironically this is the only bad diesel engine Peugeot ever made

Good to know- but I figure if mine has made it this far it'll probably soldier on, or it's already had a new HG by now!

I never noticed that. It has five wheel nuts like a Granada. Sierras had four.

Yes, the difference is subtle. A more reliable indicator is the underbelly; the Sierra has speckled plumage whereas the Granada is light brown (male) or dark brown (female)

The head gasket was a symptom of a much more serious /expensive problem ,but like you say if its got this far you may be lucky ,make sure you use the right antifreeze and at the correct dilution IMO this was the cause of the rubber liner seals breaking down causing the head gasket to fail

**** me, I've just realised it is a Croatian Greater Spotless Granada, Fordus Granada Fuckinghugeus which can be over 45 feet long. Compare with the normal-sized grey Fiat in the top right corner.

      Right, try this. Go onto howmanyleft and pick a manufacturer and a distinctive model no longer made.
      1) note down the peak year and number of cars.
      2) halve the number of cars left and note down the year.
      3) halve it again and note the year
      Rating equals time to halve 1 / time to halve 2
      Examples
      VW Corrado 16V
      1995 - 3800
      2006 - 1900
      2011 - 928
      Corrado = 11/5
      Fiat Bravo 2.0 HGT
      1999 - 1368
      2007 - 769
      2010 - 382
      Bravo = 8/3
      Rover 25 GTi
      2002 - 1295
      2011 - 649
      2013 - 336
      Rover 25 = 9/2
      Nissan Almera 2.0 GTi
      2000 - 1400
      2009 - 700
      2011 - 370
      Nissan Almera = 9/2
      Toyota Celica GT 2.0
      2001 - 2223
      2013 - 1152
      2018 - 536
      Toyota Celica = 12/5
      Chewy over all rankings from 5 contenders
      1) Toyota
      2) VW
      3) Nissan/Rover
      4) Fiat
      Anyone else fancy a go, who can find the worst and best / highest lowest chewy scores
