Remember that these cars were built to an affordable price! All the desirable extras would have made them too expensive for their market. Most families in those days struggled to buy a couple of bikes!
Sadly, a small proportion of people make their living from robbing others. It’s always been the case. A century ago they would have been pickpockets. Two centuries ago highwaymen. Whatever they are called it’s disgraceful!
We do these occasionally with friends. They take their old Saab and we go in whatever seems sensible at the time. Anyway,went to Bristol last weekend, what a fabulous place to visit and SS Great Britain is unmissable. The Trav behaved impeccably there and back!
