This morning my friend borrowed a trailer to get his MG down to Lincolnshire. His weapon of choice is a freshly auction-blocked £50 2004 Hyundai Matrix 1.6.

Unacceptable tow car?

Some of you wondered how the car only cost £50, and here's why. He's reached Lincolnshire, but not without problems. So far the power steering has failed, the car has overheated once and almost twice, he says there's a 'rhubb-rhubb-rhubb' noise coming from the rear, and he thinks the exhaust or a heat shield is loose because something under the car is banging every time he hits a bump. Still, not bad eh? Its still moving after all, and more importantly my trailer is fine!
