    I fitted a pair of these to my 451 .... I removed the front panels so I could fit one on each side with a simple loom to bridge the two. I know they were only cheap, but they don't sound bad ... much better than the original

    Any bargain kei-esque cars taken your fancy, if not your wallet yet?

    Why not sit atop a bag of well rotted manure? ..it will do much the same thing.

    There was a red smart last week at auction that was made up to look like a ladybird, my daughter was keen on it ...madness! 😂

    I nearly came home with another one, silver this time, but sense won. (Unusually)

    If my daughter drives it next year i'm going to need a crass & embarrassingly loud, nigh on musical horn that doesn't quite damage ear drums (we are both deaf so care about others hearing) but kids wander out in the road without looking so best to embarrass them with a loud rude awakening, got to look at my options.

    Krtek / moo mole is a more or less plain de-badged blackjack.
