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.

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.

Ah, but unlike all the thousands upon thousands of other makes and models of cars, Oliver even has his own song (here's the chorus): "Oliver's army is here to stay Oliver's army is on their way And i would rather be anywhere else But here today." Take that, you posh, hoity-toity, namby-pamby sports cars :P

Purple, and a V8, richard? That'd be idiotic, you'd ruin the nice handling characteristics of such a light car. Restore to factory all the way.

I’m on the restore to factory side but if you still want something special maybe replace the petrol engine and retrofit Oliver with an electric setup. One of those other presenters will love you for it (or hate you).

As much as I'd love to see Oliver factory fresh it would be cool to see him get a peppier engine. A V8 would be going too far though. Would disc brakes be going too far?

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

Restore the body and interior to factory fresh. Then put an LS in him with a 4 or 5 speed manual transmission. You can never go wrong with a stock looking sleeper ;)

I think a Restomod would be best. Fitting in a more modern engine, modern suspension and whatever. Mechanically in Top Shape with more modern parts but visually still the same oliver through and through

My vote is to keep the body and interior original. But get rid of the motor and put in an electric motor. Electric motor with maybe 50 horsepower and a five-speed. It would be delightful and have plenty of torque. If we can achieve 200 miles of range it would be perfect. It is made to be a get around the town family car with short trips elsewhere.

Restore it mechanically, and repair the damage done to the door by your mate. But leave the exterior and interior as is. They are its characters and your reminder of its Botswana adventure.

It’s like an injured wild animal, when you’ve fixed him take him back to his natural habitat, Botswana, and set him free again. Otherwise, stuff and mount him.
