Re: Shark fin aerial.
To save time I'll just list the principal reasons :-
Although my car gets very little used ( 8000 in over three years) I have had two mast type aerials nicked. I also cross threaded one of the replacements. A shark fin aerials utterly suits the sweeping look of a 156 GTA Sportwagon. The wife won't have to remember to take the mast aerial off when she goes to the carwash. I can cover the car up more easily when it is not in use. There are other reasons but the pubs are open !
