EAST OF ENGLAND SHOWGROUND - PETERBOROUGH - NEWS, VIEWS, PICTURES & LINKS FROM THE SHOW

In this episode Jason and Penny are helping buyer David Curtis to find a £6-£7,000 hatchback for his wife thatís going to be more fun to drive than the current Vauxhall Corsa and understanding the attraction of high performance Japanese cars.

When your surrounded by literally thousands of Jap cars thereís no difficulty finding some pretty rapid motors and Jason and Penny took the chance to talk to owners who have spent thousands £ís and hundredís of hours making there cars unique. Jasonís teenage kick was a Toyota Celica, which despite its advancing years still comes with many of the creature comforts normally associated with more modern metal and comes with a bargain price tag.

We both loved the bargain Celica

Hot tip of the week for a car you can run for free came in the form of an evergreen Morgan plus 8 which Jason and Penny both managed to squeeze into. Whether Jason managed to get back out again is still open to some debate! 

Penny and Jason also give you the essential low down on how to save money on your next car with a mini master class in how to haggle and youíll see Penny get misty eyed when confronted with a 330bhp Mitsubishi EvoVIII.

Despite the rain it was a fantastic day and buyer of the week David deciding to buy a rather surprising car for him and his wife.

Buyer David loved the Seat but a dark secret lurked

Glad we went for the Alfa 147 from M.Q.J Cars Ltd
