My first car was a Ford Capri, or 'crapi' as it ought to have been called. A poor man's Mustang. I liked it though. Leaked water rather than oil. I got to contemplate a lot of roadside laybys waiting for the breakdown service to turn up. I started carrying a jerry can full of water around for such eventualities. When the windscreen washer jet failed at 3am in a Scottish village, I started pouring this jerry can over the glass. The police car that drove past did a very quick u-turn!
Now, I'm driving a British narrowboat. It also has no oil leaks...and, more importantly, no water leaks.
