I believe the thing to look out for is...... a Metro badge

Alot of cars seem to get better with age, their looks become retro and appealing.
Not the Metro, thats still an ugly little spud.

A couple of photos I took in the paddock at the Brands Hatch British Grand Prix (17th July 1982) of the Datapost Group A Turbo Metros racing on the day in the GP support races, running in the RAC British Saloon Car Championship and driven by Richard Longman & Alan Curnow.

I think the Metty was one of the best looking small hatches of the early 80's.
What was better:

I'd say the mk1 fiesta.
or the Civic, the CVCC had some pretty nifty lean burn stuff on the engine.
or the 205, which was awesome
or the Honda CRX
Look killer with a 6r4 kit

My driving instructor had an original Civic, like the one in my post above. It was a nice car, but the styling was a bit fussy.
The CRX and 205 are later designs than the Metty.

Is it rust
Maybe I've been lucky?
Or maybe it's because it's dryer and hotter than a paint booth in yer backyard!
