Simply explain that you are the one responsible for the standard of care home they end up in. If they don't ditch the Agila, its the creepy one with the busted windows and the smell of urine for them. Works on my parents...well, it used to, I guess I am not around enough now to enforce it. He changed his BMW 530i Sport for a Mercedes E320CDI Estate, and keeps going on about MPG...

Well my old man has an MG TF that he drives around in in flying jacket and goggles! It has a horn that goes "AA woooo gaaaah!" too!

Nightmare when he comes round in it, the local kids call him "Mr Toad!" and chase him up the street!

A mate and I had the misfortune of getting one of those things as a hire car in Geneva. It was that pinky-colour too! Imagine 2 blokes turning up to a ski resort in that!

Get them to beep the horn - it sounds as funny as the car looks!

was he a delivery driver at some point [?] and is now reminising [!].

My dad has a G reg Alfa Spider as a daily driver, and a Morgan that comes out at the weekend every so often. He's a crap driver, I havent been in a car with him driving for getting on for 10 years, I'll always find an excuse not to [!].

Make sure they park it at the end of the road, well out of site around the corner[:D]

Is it built on the corsa chassis? what was the idea in getting one of those, it's so ugly.

They bought it without telling me - otherwise I could have pointed them towards a Yaros, Fabia etc

They also bought a 1.2ghz reconditioned laptop the same day - for £500 fecking quid [:(!]

Parents eh?

It's not built on Corsa chassis, it's actually a rebadged (and a few buttons etc) Suzuki Wagon-R (or W4nk-R as Quentin Wilson or J Clarkson suggested)
