Your last clean for a while little Skoda, sorry there.
In one of the more sedate blog entries, Rob cleaned the car, ahead of its departure for Europe’s Deep South on Tuesday, and discovers a truly green car.
Rob used a product that can only have spawned from the brain and mouth* of Alan Partridge.

Autoglym’s Aqua Wax, though good, did nothing to repair the rusted panels or the bird-corroded bonnet.
In these photos we get a sense of what it must have looked like as it clanked off the production line all those years ago.
A green bonnet. Green, like the forward-thinking engineers who fitted just 68 horse powers under the bonnet.
A green door. Green, like the traffic light you anticipate changing to avoid having to go down through the gears. Again.
A close-up of the green bonnet. Green, like the favourite British Racing Pantone. Suggesting speed and pedigree.
A green car. Green, representing the envious glances of all those not lucky enough to sweat their way through France and Italy in it.
