What are they like to own ?
Brilliant fun. First off you get to pretend to be a taxi driver. You can lean your head towards the partition window and start rabbitting on about who you had in your cab last week. And moan about the traffic and rickshaws and Ken Livingstone or whatever you like without fear. You can show off to your friends by doing complete turns in the width of the road. But most of all, you will grow to love the reassuring sound of that bullet proof engine clattering away as you trundle proudly around your neighborhood, safe in the knowledge that you have a car that will probably last you ten years, and cost very little to own and run.
If you have kids like me, then its a no brainer... Bags of room, you can wheel your buggy straight in, and when they start moaning about something you can just slide the partition window shut.
