My dear old Mum is 88, shes really in to tech, tablet, i phone, alexa in the kitchen etc. One day I visted and asked Alexa to "just shut up" and you know what ? She did. The nearest I get to this is spotify, I use it all the time in the Honda, but in the Morris ? I thought about looking for a 1965 p...

I built a car once, a kit based on a cobra design, with Ital pedal box, rover v8 engine...
Speaking from experience, when people asked me how long it took to build a certain kit car, I replied 6 months, then 6 months off then another 6 months.
Without the break I would have just gotten fed up, taking a break is a great idea.
