"These cars are competing to be the most unexceptional"!

What would you call the winner? Exceptionally unexceptional?

My kind of show!

Brilliant, always fancied an early Twingo. Small and boxy, everything a replacement Mini should have been.

First Twingos were never sold in RHD. One of the last proper basic cars. Also had lots of mint green bits on the inside

I'd have an early Fiat Panda, typical Italian box with an engine that will rev and handling that suits both twisty lanes and city race tracks

First Twingo I ever saw was abroad and straight away liked them, shame they never did RHD.

A customer has loads of Panda's, mostly early 4 x 4's. Says they're like nanny goats, will get anywhere..... :)
