    Double Bubble on A's for my chums at alphabetical cars but a right royal pain in the btm for the rest of us general public who were again unpaid employees of British Leyland as we did real time development testing at our own expense with one of BL's finest.

    I actually quite likes the shape - and of course today the post modern ironies of Allegro ownership can only be wondered at.

      According to legend, it was the police who were responsible for the infamous Quartic 'square' steering wheel being changed on the Allegro...as they blamed it for causing officers to crash their cars a bit more often than normal!

      If only BL had built a Wolseley version...

      We don't have a television these days - but if Santa turned up with the boxed DVD set I'd not send it back up the chimney.
