Kermit Saved My Life

My first car looked just like this one. The same make, model and colour. Although I had leather seats and not those cool tartan ones. A welch plug blew after about 4 weeks, which meant an expensive repair job for a 20c part. The passenger side door frame leaked so that when it rained you […]
