I grew up watching To The Manor Born with Penelope Keith looking down her nose at the guy who'd just bought her house.  Back then a big country house with an oil painting of a dog on the wall was where people put their new money.   

If your numbers came up, anyone here not have an S4 over a bit of chippendale or a chinese vase?

At the other end of the spectrum the Viva advert for a sub 1K Fulvia warmed my heart.  Running and driving but needs a lot of welding.  They ARE still out there.  Likewise the Y10s on here needing to be saved.

Ugly! How dare they..
It is not as pretty as an 037, but from some angles looks good and purposeful, from others a tad ungainly.

Pity the writer did not listen to the guy who owned it, full of errors actually.

The smell always gets you.
I poked my head in a cabin of another car some years ago and found myself choked,
same as the sound, it is not like a buzz saw but something unique, and used to
the hairs on my neck stand up every time!
Ah to have loved.....::-(
