    Westheath - the tales of utter neglect and total idiocy I witnessed while I did my part time stint on that base still amaze me many decades later.

    No telling what any previous owner did to the car by way of maintenance of course - if there was a previous owner. Most of these guys bought new with special concessions through the PX.

    As a raw student my overriding thought was, 'We rely on these guys!'

    I'm not so green today.

    And what it doesn't burn it leaks!

    Can swap out a battery in 5 mins..... unless it's a '94 Renault espace V6 (air ducting, loosen headlamp, rotate battery 90 degs to lift out)

    Today swapped the brake pads on wife's Suzuki Swift 20min per side. :)
