The Uber Barge

The Uber Barge. Born in 1993 it led a cherished life until I got hold of it. Now it is my daily transport and I'm hugely attached to it. It is, without a doubt, one of my favourite cars that I've ever owned.

This is because it has is personality. It will not be rushed. The gear change is slow, the engine is torquey, but hardly pokey, it's ride is comfy and it doesn't really like to be hustled around. It wafts. Because of this, it is without a doubt the most relaxed car to drive I've ever experienced. As it doesn't go fast you don't try to, arriving at your destination chilled. Nothing winds you up when you're wafting. I truly believe that if everyone was made to drive these, it'd be an end to road rage and a return to everyone being polite and British. Which for a German car is quite surprising.

After the lousy winter we've just had (it's great in the snow), this is the first chance I've had to give it a proper GJOBbing. Being so amazingly shiny I decided to take a load of pics for posterity. Marvel at it's majesty!
