Yeah, Morgan's Atlas says that for oil. And in the FIRST 10 months it drank a quart of it, damn 0W oils.

The second was when I got home I said let me give her a go...

In a modern car, check coolant levels once a week?! Note it's been 'bookmarked'....dangit.



Maybe it's where it's from?


Nice car, tho. There's a joke here but I'm to tired to come up with it.
Pretty sure I got a reprimand for posting my own rental car a couple weeks ago.....

But dang, where do you rent from? I don't think the airport had any of those waiting for me.

Yes but your rental screws I have a Jeep, no sir you have a Fiat. His rental screams I'm here to rob you of all your kit, sleep with your wife and burn out in your drive on the way out, cause

Ok, not really, it's a Tata but you get the point

I do believe you are correct and reprimands were applicable. We need hold true to the lashing out at vehicles from the motherland as opposed to this proper vehicle it was replaced with from a proper state.

And the Jag was a one way rental from NC that the local Enterprise manager said they sometimes do to other branches. Send a known problem vehicle one way to let the other sort it out. A little infighting I got involved with!!

I have that exact truck at work. Although yours looks cleaner and less dented.

Wait and who gets a truck with no trailer hitch?

It was an option you had to add to every trim line when I ordered my truck. think about 1200 bucks if you got the full trailer pack but that included the big dumbo ear no retract and no dimming mirrors. Mine was 400 bucks for a welded hitch vs the buy from the dealer bolt in at 250 plus their labor.

Not sure this is in the spirit of the thread as these weren’t really spotted out in the wild as it were. This was at a cars and coffee event this morning. But if you can post pictures of your rental car

Some European stuff to start. Including ones with little engines right at the back.

The Opel GT is a car I see a lot. It lives a few miles from me. And it’s for sale. $12k. Tempting.

Some trucks and a comparison of two vette engines.

The Ford has a Jag rear suspension.

One has had a transplant! Much later engine in there.

That looks like it was a nice little show? Was it an organized event or did people just show up to shop with their toys?

Organised. They even have T-Shirts now. Apparently it was the one year anniversary. Came from a discussion after a few beers one night - “we should do a cars and coffee”.

I’ve only been a couple of times, but looks like quite a few are regulars. Normally there are more MX5s.

Still we go, it is nice coffee. And back home by 9! The day remains. Which reminds me I really ought to get on with stuff.

I feel that's the way most car shows and likely races started, the less successful started with hold my beer. Spectacular but short-lived
