March 2010

For as long as I can remember I have been a mild car nut, not a full on night and day lowered, souped up car bore, but a fan none the less.

Sitting in the back of my parents green Morris 1000 on family holidays often started early hours to make the best time and avoid traffic, i’d sit in the back of this smashing little car and watch the world go by as we trundled along the motorways, destination the Isles of White and a ferry crossing all add to the joy of an eight year old’s imagination.

The Moggy Miner had one feature not mentioned in the brochure, a drafty rear door seal which caused a small cold draft onto my ear as a rested my head against the door, I loved it, i’d almost always fall asleep to the sound of the rumble of the road.

Good days and happy holidays, a very sweet car and one of the reasons i’m a mild car nut.



So you have electric everything seats, sunroof and cruise with leather trim all encased in sixteen feet of stylish steel, sat atop of tidy alloys and with the heart of a 1.9 turbo diesel engine that returns close to fifty to the gallon, a slouch out on the open road, hell no this big german saloon can top wear permitted 120mph, so plenty in the get up and go stakes.

Downside well its not new or nearly unless you can spend in the 20k region, but try several years older and with some decent motorway mileage under her belt and this car could be yours for a shade over four grand.

Cheaper than its smaller sister but more metal for your bucks, I give you the Audi A6 1.9TD.


A must for any mum, a great site and worth a look, plus I have an advert on it “Islington” !
