The first time I drove an XK 120 (it was my future Brother-in-law's car)

[old boy story alert!]

I put the hood down and with gentlemanly panache held the passenger door open





There I was with a lovely lady sitting in the car to my left...


I confidently inserted the key... depressed the clutch.... started the engine... (glorious sound)


I asked my Lady where she wanted to go for lunch..


OK said I.... off we go to the 'Cherry Tree'


at this point I don't really remember why I did what I did.... :confused:


but I decided to press a few buttons on the dash...




.........





Two jets of soapy water shot over the windscreen.... one in my lap.. and one in hers :(




[how are the mighty fallen]


after a good laugh we drove to the Pub and had a great lunch


The car was great... lousy brakes :(












The Lady?










we're still married :cool:

A euphemism for leaves on the line :confused:

;)
Can be all sorts of things :p

And leaves on the line btw is not just a myth, it's a genuine issue that the general public in their ignorance just like to giggle at ;)

I went out earlier in the evening (7.00), to see the Tornado pass by at an unmanned crossing on the Kent coast line. I had no idea Top Gear was on until later, and missed the first ten minutes. How surprised was I to see the Tornado twice in one evening. :lol:

One thing that got me about this episode (missed it last night so just caught it on iPlayer) is that even in the p***ing rain, Hammond still didn't have his headlight on!!!

Otherwise, an excellent show!
