    Default a Comet's tale

    This video makes a good case for buying lifetime warranties.

    There's a nice follow-on to Rachel's story. She's still going strong.

    Nice going but I prefer the one about the bloke with a Ford Mondeo diesel who had done 450,000 miles in 5 years at which rate I think he must have slept at the wheel as most of the time in UK you are in a traffic jam anyway.

    I wonder if she ever had the throttle stick on her in that car.

    Good for Rachel and the Comet.
    It's only ink and paper

    I think we should make Toyota buy Rachel's Comet, take it back to Japan, and study it. I'll bet the throttle don't stick, pedal don't get caught under the floormat, the driveshaft don't break, the brakes always work, and the front-end doesn't fall out.
    No good deed goes unpunished.

    Weren't the Comet and Maverick lines before the Pinto? Of the rear gas tank flame - um - fame?
