    Ownership Verified: Good news, it's the 2015 Dacia!

    Ownership Verified: Good news, it's the 2015 Dacia!

    The gearbox is okay, the stick is a bit wobbly but that might just be the cables and general construction. 6th gear is overdrive deluxe, 100 km/h is around 2000 rpm.

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    Popping out of the woodwork to ventilate my anger a bit. One of my coworkers went against all rules and reccomendations and went on a skiing trip "because it was cheap now". He is now in quarantine and I have to cover his shifts just because he acted like a troglodyte. To top it off, we are...

    What's Your Personal Top Speed?

    230-ish km/h in my 605 SV24 many years ago. There was still some grunt left in the engine but the trim around the windshield blew off so it was time to brake.
