This was a fly on the wall UK series in the early nineties and it's still complete gold. Basically a complete snapshot of everyday car culture at the time, it puts cameras in people's cars and lets them talk freely about their car choices, driving life and so on. It stands the test of time and if you haven't seen it before - especially if you were too young, I'd recommend dipping in as it it's funny. dark, poignant and a great historic document of the everyday instead of the usual Top Gear hyperbole.

I thought that, but surely even a diesel maestro could beat an artic?
Just watched the young drivers one. It really is good stuff.
HGV speed limiters were in place by 93 so must have been the non turbo Perkins in the Maestro,it was 59bhp so that would be pretty slug like with 0-60 in about 18 seconds.Should have been able to pass trucks eventually though!
