Why no Carlton road test vids??
« on: April 20, 2013, 05:13:36 PM »
I was having a nose on YouTube at old Top Gears elisodes this morning, and apart from the odd LC nostalgia clip and senator second hand test for Top Gear there's nothing similar for Carlton's, weird when there's road tests for other vauxhalls at the time like the Astra, Cavalier, and Frontera, so why nothing for the carlton ???

I noticed that a while back and thought the same! Not like carltons where not good enough they were execetive cars back in thee day so more than worthy of a road test

Maybe they thought that the Carltons were boring ??? Or there would be a lack of interest and nobody would watch them ??? Who knows ???
Everyone knows that rwd is the proper way. Some refuse to admit it.

You would thought they would've tested the GSi at least but I guess they didn't review cars bigger than the cavalier/sierra (unless it was something like a Rolls Royce) shame really :-\

Super cub has reminded me we need to start a thread on carlton adverts :)

This rather turned my head http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPhdwVT7rvM. No I mustn't.

RIP - 1992 2.0 CDXi Manual Estate (Spectral Blue with far too much tin worm, now only parts).

Old age means wondering: Do I really have to struggle to become an expert in something I might never need to do again.
