Not really Jens, but it's Land Rovers that I and my kidneys can't stand. That jolting ride is perfect for off-road I'm sure but otherwise it's just pain on wheels for me.
By the way, keep up that 'Sire' business - I quite like it!

I absolutely adore those Alfas. Just gorgeous.
They're one of the few cars that I would consider swapping / selling the Jensen for.
If they had a usable rear seat - and I'll whisper this - there's every chance that there would be one in my garage instead of the Jensen.

This is not just a Metro, this is the prototype Tickford that was shown at the Geneva Motor show. It has just been restored at huge expense.

Apparently they were very expensive when new, not my taste but I suppose somebody must love it.

I might not be able to go anywhere in it for the foreseeable, but at least mine has a fresh mot certificate as of today to keep her on the road for another year. Or stuck in the garage with nowhere to go...

I think you can still use your classic cars, if you do use it just keep away from other people. If the weather is as forecasted this weekend I am planning on taking mine out so we can go for a walk somewhere why we still can. With things going the way they are we might not even be allowed out of our houses other than for work and shopping soon.
