Re: observations

Mmm, I wonder. Maybe a touch of rose-tinted speccery. One example that comes to mind is the (fortunately) now defunct 1970's motorway 'fast lane flasher'. I'm sure there are plenty more we can think of. It's people, innit?

Re: Leaving a Morris in the Open Air

There is a school of thought that says a car parked in the open air is less likely to rust than one garaged after every trip. Any moisture on the former is dried out by air movement and the sun's heat whereas a damp/wet car in a garage creates its own non-moving moisture-laden climate; ideal conditi...
