I came across a left hand drive Evo 8 RS today. Tein adjustables, and a shitload of HKS parts under the hood. Quite nice really!

Whilst driving around today, I saw not 1, but 2 Suzuki X-90s. Haven't seen one in years and years. They did cause me to ask these 3 questions though:
1)WTF??
2)Why do those things exist
3) more to the point, why would anyone buy one?

Spoke to one of the owners, he said they're "bloody good little cars mate, and bloody good off road too! Only problem is in the wet, they get a bit... sketchy."

*not my picture, but just in case you needed to be reminded what an automotive abortion they are.

You can repeat those questions for an Isuzu MU (mysterious utility is bloody right)!

they were a rust haven and failed all crash testing, popular for baby boomers to tow behind slow / poorly named mobile house bus things.

cheap and nasty is the slogan!

Its a Rav4 with half the practicality so none really.

At least with a MU you can fit a dog in the back (Unless its one of them x90 look a likes) and its got a decent Diesel engine.

I see a LHD Toyota Hilux when I go to the shops all the time it was a big WTF moment the first time I seen it.

Boring question, but;
I've gotta replace our family car as it's a bit stuffed. Thinking a wagon, 2 litre-ish size. Priorities are safety rating and reliability and what forth. Whats worthy? Thinking Mondeo or Mazda 6 sort of thing.

15K or so. (not real money, just goes on the Mortgage). Main objectives are the right size, can get a good long run out of it and it has good safety rating (which typically means it has to be newish).
