    My dad is disabled and did claim motability benefits. If you don’t know about that and have family with disabilities look into claiming it for them. A great car we had the use of under the motability scheme was a volvo v40 cross country lovely car. Hyundai Ioniq was also good for boot space and being a very smooth car because it’s a hybrid.

    Why is the issue of race coming up? Did they actually say that they didn’t want you to drive their car because you’re black? That’s awful if they did. But he was asked directly “did they say we don’t want you to dive the car BECAUSE” and he his answer was “they didn’t want me specifically” Did the manufacturer say it was because you were black or not? If they did I won’t drive their car either but did they say it or not?

As for the car throttle boys Alex jack and ethan are a breath of fresh air that appeal to most of us working class folk!

    in regards to miles, if a car makes it to 150k+ miles, it has been taken care of, a car can go at 20k miles or 220k miles, but to get to 220k miles, its had a lot of love and care!

    Loved the episode, nice conversation flow with Rory as well! I completely agree about the miles on a car (km here), it all depends on how it's been treated. Bought my first car with about 105k miles (175k km), that car was a lot of fun for as long as the engine lasted. But it didn't get any love or proper maintenance from me at all. I also had an Opel Astra GSi (Vauxhall Astra MK3, GSi), cosworth C20XE (redtop) block, 217k miles (350.000 km) on the clock and it ran so incredibly smooth. I loved that car, still do. The car itself wasn't in best shape but sold it nevertheless and it's still driving around. Now I'm driving a '00 WRX (GT Turbo) with 165 miles (266k km) on the clock. Love it. Needs maintenance which it's currently getting, but all cars need maintenance. Didn't have any doubt buying this car more than a year ago. Pictures shared on CT.

    I had a similar story, I had this guy who used to pop into the garage and liked cars, I bought a BMW 528i manual which had a turbo and big intercooler fitted, it's was mega quick and I took him for a ride too try and scare him. A couple of days after i noticed a strange pungent smell coming from the passenger seat, it was mid summer and the hot weather really didn't help. After day 5 the smell was beyond bearable, I reluctantly sniffed the seat thinking my scared passenger had leaked some body fluids in my attempt to scare him. But the seat cover was not where the scent was coming from. 3 days after that I couldn't even bear to drive the car and I begged a friend to help me find the problem. He opened the passenger door got on his knees and looked under the passenger seat where he pulled out this plastic packet of dog tripe that I remembered my friend gave me frozen to try my dog on and I took it off the seat and put it on the floor when this guy got in. And of coarse with the exceleration it shot under the seat and I forgot all about it. It was like handling an unexploded bomb trying too remove the packet as it split and did not want to spill this ransed liquid into the carpet. But luckily the smell went within a week.

    I used to work as a manager in a garage a few years ago, I remember a car coming in for a repair, the customer asked us not to open the boot as it was faulty, I can also remember the smell from this car was horrendous and the summer heat was making it worse. A couple of days later we heard on the local radio that that customer was arrested, what was in the boot? His wife who he had murdered and kept in his boot for 10 months. I'll never forget that smell.

    With my first car, I used to get pulled up once a week, until the local cops learnt the car and left me alone. Since then I think we're getting on for 10 times I've been pulled up, mostly for random breath testing, but sometimes for little things I've done - like forgetting to turn my lights on in a city. I also lost my licence but that's another story.

    I used to do odd jobs on a small farm and the worst thing I've ever smelled was a dead sheep that had been buried in a shallow grave for a week in the middle of summer. Whoever buried it the first time had done a piss poor job and as the thing had swelled up while decomposing it had broken the surface and the smell was eye watering. We had to dig it up, drag it out of the hole then dig it down to a proper depth before reburying it and my god that was the worst day of work in my life. We tried all the tricks you learn dealing with the normal bad smells of a farm (vics vapour rub on your top lip, masks, cotton wool up the nose, wrapping a wet cloth round your face etc.) but it made little difference. As for bad things to spill in a car I once forgot to properly secure a bucket of fishing bait that was soaking in liquid krill (similar to shrimp) when driving home from a fishing trip and it splashed everywhere. Had to gut all the carpets out and burn them as well as pressure washing the boot and dumping a couple of kilos of baking soda to try to soak up what was left. Luckily it was a car I used for work and as such was a generally stinky mess anyway but that stink never quite left until I eventually scrapped the car about a year later. Certainly wasn't sad to see the back of that one. It was a 1.4 Xsara estate (possibly the worst car ever made but stubbornly hard to kill) known as the green turd so no great loss to the world.
