I will be either 101 or 111 years old, so I don't suppose I will be there!

Yes (but I've also had a negative comment or two) +yes (Dunlops)!

I lent the C-V8 to a colleague who has a Mk2 Interceptor- his BMW was locked in the public garage and he needed to get home. He was exhuberant about the handling and the acceleration of the C-V8, and now wants a C-V8 also. :D

I agree with the bumperless look. It looks like something out of Flash Gordon

I agree, looks even more outlandish. Showed the car to someone and he didn't realize that the bumpers were missing.
