Electric him :)
It'll be nice if you do a complete nut and bolt restoration to factory finish. Granted it'll take time and a lot of effort, but Oliver deserves it.
Restore him, but give him a nice juciy V8 and make him a sleeper!
I get the feeling Oliver would like to run a quarter mile.
Vintage rally racer. For the win!
Pity the Lancia did get the same treatment
Helephant motor swap
i love the fact that the they called hammond a pro driver
V8 all the way!!!!!
Just fix the bad bits. You don’t want to loose that connection.
Originality mate restore to factory condition
Could maybe modernise it. New engine, suspension and brakes etc but just restore the rest to factory spec.
Absolute beast performance wise but an untouched but restored exterior!
You owe it to him to redtore him to how he was when he left the factory
His spirit says rally. Investment sense would say original
a historical rallye car would be cool because he already rallyed through the whole of botswana and showed you his true nature! Maybe he always wanted to be a rallye car, now in his 50s you can make his dream come true :)
Love Oliver so much
I think Oliver would love to become electric!
3:25 that's what my girlfriend said to me before she left me 😢
The great thing about Oliver is, as you said, there's nothing to go wrong. I feel like most "upgrades" you could do to him would lose that "too simple to be killed" character. If I were going to try to "improve" him at all, I'd lean into that and try to make him even more plucky.
CLARKSON!!! read in angry voice.
The attractive balinese clinicopathologically disarm because editorial outstandingly suffer minus a open makeup. meaty, periodic peru
independent suspension, 4x4, and as big of a V8 as can fit under the hood. HAMMOND!!!!!!
Hey Oliver nice to meet u 😀😇
This man just said we live in absurd times and hes not wrong about that at all.
Restore Oliver, but electrify it.
This was an Opel advert all along ...I think Oliver should be classically restored
I do like the sound of a retro rally car
Rally him because he’s the hero we all need
Noooo, don't turn him into a cruiser! You don't have a dog for years and then one day when he's old and tired decide to give him a pink mohawk and take him with you on a marathon. Restore so he looks as original as posible, that's what he deserves.
Either back to factory or retro rally car!
Restores Oliver, or Plugs new car from Opel?? 🤔
as with most people restore him to hownhe was when you got him... cos why did you get him, again?
Restomod all the way
Oliver deserves a factory restoration. Please don't cut him up.
which episode is that?
My first thought was RALLY CAR!! but then I realized that Oliver was already a rally car, really, so restoring him to factory would really be the same thing.
Imagine James, in a blue suit, white shirt, long red tie, a spray tan and a blonde comb over.
What a lovely pub, I would love to go there for a meal
Great video 👍
It's got to be restored to factory freshness. Anything else would just be disappointing.
Build a sleeper... all the way! Look exactly the same on the outside but rally running gear, engine etc Kinda like the ashes van... transit on the outside jag under the bonnet... or should I say bolted to the floor!
Honestly, I'd restomod him. We've come a long way in terms of control, suspension, brakes, and drivetrain. Keep him overall the same but give him a new life.
Hammond, I honestly don't think you will see this, but, please please please, restore Oliver to his original state, don't ruin him.
i think you should ether restore Oliver to factory spec or retro rally Oliver.
He deserves to be restored to his original form. Dignified and authentic.
Restore him to what he was out of the factory. He is timeless and not a fad.
V8 to make him a sleeper
so a slammed funny car with a nitro engine or restored ermmmm I want to say the funny car BUT will say restore him
Convert him into an electric vehicle. Evolution!
Please, please leave Oliver original. He'll be absolutely ruined and lose all his character if you start modifying him!
While factory-original would be my first choice, I could see turning him into what we Americans once called (still call?) a sleeper: absolutely normal on the outside, turbo-charged mayhem underneath the hood.
5.0 Coyote slammed to the ground
For me Oliver don't need to much change for the exterior.... Meanwhile i will put a small block v8 in it, it should make Oliver more aggressive and sporty....
stick the mazda 787b 4 rotor in the back
These 3 must be the only guys on the internet not to get hate comments. I love it. There like the Royal family.
I vote rally-ish. A V8 would destroy the character of Oliver. A peppy four cylinder, like an Ecotec, and a not-knackered gearbox.
Two a similar approach that Singer does to 911’s. Make Oliver everything he can be.
The Yanks I'm sure will have an ace up their sleeves - just like they have smaller pints and gallons, they probably secretly have amaller miles - so tip a Hennessy to set another record but then adjust it down by about 20% to get the European equivalent....
Under the radae? Well that’s because it was nothing but a terrible edit.
Yeah, don't think anyone gives a toss about the filter lol. Standard Oliver.
Oliver monster truck
4 link lsd red top !
Some say.... that hes still at the side of the road
dude the circuit board decals are cringy af
Back to factory, he deserves it.
Full restoration. keep it original, and get engine and gearbox fully reconditioned to as new.
If he were mine I would loving restore him to how he was when he left the Opel factory in 1963. Which by the way was a great year as its my birth year as well haha. In all seriousness, the Oliver you fell in love with and also got you thru that whole "challenge" was and is the aged version of the newborn Oliver. I would restore him to as new.
Restore Oliver. One of the best cars in that old show. It just kept going through everything. Oliver deserves the love and care that he has earned.
V8 or V10 with some electric assist from the motors.
About 3000 Speciales worldwide but there’s only one Oliver.Oliver wins
explains why the rsr in nfs heat is so overpowered
