Richard Hammond reunites with Oliver!

Over the past couple of years, Richard Hammond has been neglecting his Opel Kadett, Oliver. So just before the worst of the British winter rolled in, Richard took the opportunity to check in on his Okavango Delta-smiting friend.

  • Restomod I say. On the outside appearing like it rolled of the assemblyline, but underneath brought completely up to date perhaps even done as a modern hybrid. And yes! Keep the horn intact. It's Olivers voice as well as the dwelling of his automotive soul.

  • While I love to see old Opels in their Factory restored beauty, you can do a mix of both you just mentioned if it really is an Option, Boxer Engine or ask Opel for an engine from an Adam or Astra, make it a bit lower, maybe some wider arches, really lights, the options are endless, tho I support the Factory restoration.

  • I'd suggest a restore-to-factory. Maybe a nice new paint job in your favourite colour but no massive changes (other than repairs) otherwise. But is it just me or did Hammond get really old? Maybe it's that beard.

Take that, you posh, hoity-toity, namby-pamby sports cars :P

  • Restore him to stock. Hold some sort of competition and make Oliver the prize along with some on screen time. Just make sure whoever wins him, actually really needs a car. That makes it tricky competition to hold i guess but thats the only meaningful thing you can do with it at this point
