Sad but --
« on: February 09, 2014, 10:17:39 PM »

I've just been watching something or other on the box (TV) and a Corsa ad (car) came on.  The one where they are "fun" because they can trail cheerily coloured smoke.  The random thought crossed my mind that 30 years ago I had an Ambassador that did much the same thing,  Only in monochrome days, it was grey, and required a rebore and new piston rings before it became enjoyable to drive again.

But is the smoke mono or full colour? 


Just re-read the reply - didn't spot the smileys, just the thingy below.  Apology courtesy of J.D. Tenessee Honey, as was the original thought.


Just seen the !Dave" ad as well.  The double bath one.  Suspicious, but very funny.

But is the smoke being emitted the famous magic smoke we all hear and read about and will said cars grind to a halt until a new ESC is fitted ?

I wonder if it's a CGI effect Malcolm as there is an awful lot of smoke coming out of those cars!

Re: ERC 'magic smoke' - maybe that could be an option for the manufacturers; "!When you blow the ESC up, what colour smoke would you like it to billow forth?"
