Old man across road had one i wanted it !! He used to drive while leaning over to look down middle of car and always wore a trilby hat , they never had a telly and were very religious. Perfect car for that type of person i have always thought

Got caught driving me dads round block when 16 stupid I know and insurance costs reminded me for 5-6 years after!!!!! C reg auto when like a train tho but rotten as pear fell apart rapid or rusted to dust in no time good old BL debarcale and demolition of British car manufacturing which destroyed Britain's credibility and Germans to shine through!

Had an auto one the same, totally shit car after coming from a nice mk2 Golf Gti. Best thing about it at the time was 4 elec windows with switches that lit up nice at night!

Maria Ovington remember the one you had? Massive oil leak, we took it back to the garage & demanded a refund! Got your money back & you bought the Renault 11!

Dads only showroom fresh brand new car was the twin brother of this car,.. Same colour but the Vitesse ,.. & an XR3i eater ...👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Worked on these from new...shit then and shittier now

This is the same as the one in Keeping Up Appearances 😁

dad had the auto,nice smooth quiet drive if you can keep the rust away

Put it in a barn and leave it there

Loved my 216. Hardly any of these left now. Shame.

Basically an updated Montego. No thanks. No wonder they went bust. Consistently shit cars.

Andrew Dunn did your dad not have a silver one of these?

We had a g reg 1, it was the newest car we'd ever owned when i was growing up lol.

Rachel Hopkins this seems to be deep in my psyche

My first car was a 213 se with the Honda engine, cost £650 to buy and £650 to insure.

Steven Burgoyne this is a classic for you son

Remember your red rust bucket dave David Cordner??

Paul Davies was your dad's a c reg?

Raymond Langley did you have one of these bad boys

Kathryn Gibson sell the audi, found your perfect car!
