Tonight the boys attempt to turn a boring multiple person transporter into a fashionable ‘drop top’, by putting a working convertible roof on an ageing Renault Espace. Removal of the roof is a complete success – construction of a new one less so. They conclude that trying to make your own convertible is a bit like trying to cut your own hair. You can do it, but you probably shouldn’t. James enjoys looking at a Honda Civic. Owning a Honda used to be as much a part of old age as incontinence and nose hair. But, with the Civic, it looks like Honda employed a designer to create funky tweaks to scare off the older generation. The door handles look like rocket ships. And the dashboard is a sci-fi fan’s dream. Looks like granny and grandpa are actually going to have to start using their free bus-passes!
