Good stuff. I think that I may be the second oldest.

How's it going. All of our experience. I passed my test in a 1962 Singer Gazelle!!!
A lot of these youngsters (allegedly) don't know how to drive in snow, ice etc. (seen 'em).
Should be part of the driving test.

Sorry - shouldn't go on about things.

I passed my test in 1958 in an Austin A35 van......dreadful machine. I believe there is now an owners' club!!

I believe James Hunt chose an A35 van as his only vehicle after retiring from F1, until his death.

I must have been too young to appreciate its charm!!

OR
After retiring from F!, driving anything must be an anti-climax. So you might as well go for the worst!

Not true... I know where his old Merc S Class is parked.
