1982 Talbot Samba LS 1.0 from UK and Ireland
A bit of a dog in the looks department, but very reliable
Rust was a bit bad on the front sills of the car.
Other than that, it was reliable until the engine packed up at 63000 miles.
This was my first car; wanted a small Volvo but the money won't go that far.
I remember doing 105 mph downhill in this car near junction 8 on the M25. It could have gone faster but I had to slow down as I saw a police car in the inside lane.
This was not the prettiest car that I have ever had, but was reasonably comfy from what I remember. One thing I do remember is that when you went over 70 mph you had to turn the radio up loud or the sound of the engine was deafening.
The best thing about this car was it was very reliable and cost next to nothing on petrol.
I must agree with other reviews that it rusted on the front something rotten, but it kept on running.
It finally died after my little brother had it in '96.
A lot of fond memories from this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
