Progress so far on my current build, a Polish PZL-37A in Romanian livery circa 1941 in 1/72 scale.
There is still some work to do but it's not far from completion and keeping me distracted during my current troubles and the on-going world troubles.

I have been looking on-line at suitable cars to get some ideas and I discovered my old Suzuki Wagon-R for sale. I am sorely tempted as I really liked that car and it was tough and generally reliable but realistically it now has 105k miles on the clock and it is now sixteen years old. It still has the dents in it from the drunken morons who attacked it one night.

I'll keep an eye on it but I won't be considering any replacement car until later this year. It will have to be upright and easy to get into with supportive comfy seats for bad backs. It's a bugger getting old! 
Speaking of which I will take my car out for a drive later to see how my back copes with it, plus the cats are running out of food.

105K miles on a petrol car... no, don't do it. There was a reason you sold this on...

Friends who have similar back problems swear by their Honda Jazz.

100k on a car over here is almost next to new, compared to 20 or 30 years ago. But we do get different makes available to us, larger I'm sure. I believe a lot of those smaller makes you have available to you would not pass the crash tests over here, so we don't get them at all.

Thank you folks.
It's like watching a pet go but I shan't be buying it, I'm using my head this time.

I had a Honda Jazz lease car for four years and that was a fantastic car. It's on my potential list but I am not buying anything until later this year or early next year. I want to see how the post covid world turns out and my focus now is the mortgage.
