Thank you, Jono.

 

I'll watch the Electric MX-5 and the Fiat 500 electric car together tonight. They should be fascinating.

It's a little sad that Jonny needs to sell these items to be able to renovate his house, but I do resonate with his impecuniousness.

 

I'd love the Honda S600, but, alas, I would never be able to fit inside the tiny beast!

Interesting clip - thanks, Jono. 

 

Jonny Smith is becoming a thoroughly watchable motoring journalist  :thumbsup:

Thank you, Jono.

 

If I made a comment on the last video, it would be seen as political... and I don't want Pat to frown at me. 

 

I shall simply say that the concentration of wealth into fewer and fewer hands, so that people can afford 'pretend' Rolls Royces, is the problem of our global society. The lack of global leadership has been clear for the last four years.

 

That we weren't out in Wales, Scotland, South London, Africa, Asia and other 'foreign parts', making sure they had all the PPE, ventilators and information they needed to fight COVID-19 is the reason we now have what they call in Australia the 'UK strain' of the virus.

Thank you, Jono.

 

I really enjoyed the building enthusiasm in Johnny's voice as he explored the Volvo!

Thank you, Jono.

 

Not many people could make half-an-hour of Austin Allegro video interesting enough to hold my attention without my finger hovering over the 'fast forward' button!

 

Jonny, however, has excelled in that regard - well done him!

 

I look forward to further reports  :)

Thank you, Jono.

 

It was nice and familiar, a bit like all those afternoons spent in garages talking about what modification is next (other people not me, of course).

 

Thank you. There is something nice about seeing other people waste their money!
