Last week we wondered if Laverty was losing it his piece on the Ford Ka made us wonder if the ol' boy's mojo had gone off for a coffee break and never returned. Thankfully, he comes back today with a classic "Rubbish Cars We Love" piece on the Talbot Samba, which is about as far removed from a Talbot-Lago as one can get while still staying in the realm of items with four wheels and an internal combustion engine. Seriously, we've seen swankier riding mowers. But Laverty defends the wee rustbucket, and admits a special fondness for the 80hp Rallye Edition, exhorting, "Who gives a damn about a bit of rust when you can drive an eighty horsepower mayfly?"
