Thanks, Jono :)

It's not being German that worries me---I don't mind where cars are made as long as they are made well---no, it's the horribly complex and dangerously distracting, touch-screen activated controls which concern me!

How long does a driver have to look away from the road to make ordinary adjustments to, say, HVAC for instance?

We are not allowed to operate a mobile phone, yet we can spend infinite time making eyes-off-road adjustments to a computer and please don't tell me that it can all be done without looking!

It cannot.

Neither can it be safe, especially in a car capable of 155 mph.

I really want to know how this system can be given type approval in these 'nanny state' safety obsessed times...??

I love watching engines go together (and I would still enjoy doing it too!)

180 hours gone into it so far - I wonder what the final restoration bill will be...?

Thank you, Jono. Those are wonderful clips (except for the German car and advertising Italian exotica).

I was really impressed with the re-spray on the RR at 5,000 pounds!

The Jaguar always took my breath away... I suspect it will be less attractive in a dark, non-standard colour. I shall wait and mutter darkly about non-original treatments and parts.

(I have given up on font size 17 and moved on to 22.)
