So, old p38 4..6 died with head gasket problems again after 400 miles. I refuse to pay out to have them changed again, So it can be some one else's problem, quite likely the scrap yards.
So left with the thorny problem of what car to buy that can take my electric wheelchair? looked at all the newer stuff, and the mobility cars, if you want to pay them 3 grand down every three years, bugger that! so the only car that fits the bill, is the good old ranger. spent a month trying to get a good 322, failed, so bought a vogue4.6 on a 2000 plate and with a thor engine.
The difference between the thor and the gems in initial pick up is quite remarkable.
with the gems, you have to pick your moment, and floor it, with the thor, you have to regulate how much welly you give, in case you end up entering the car in front for a cup of tea!
Not sure what makes a vogue better than the rest though? Sure its got piping round the chairs, and the plastic wood on the console, but is there more to it?
It doesn't even come with a multi cd player, so having to strip the one out of the 'dead un' and install it into the 'live un'. Probably along with the boom box, as the original one in the car is shite to say the least!
Are there any other changes that make a 'vogue' worth the different tab?
