Hi All
Last night I read my December issue of Practical Classics and found once again (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=30095) John Carrier's SP staring back at be. It's shown as a "photoshopped" Top Trump card and is described as a Jensen Interceptor Mk II, which is a poor show as the feature is written by Danny Hopkins, the Editor, who owns a MkII. I guess that is why they mocked it up as a Interceptor II.
Seems like a slow MkII at 7.6s 0-60mph!

Good spot Phil,

I for one always raise an eyebrow at the inaccuracies in the mag, especially
when Danny knows so many JOC members and suppliers.

I do cringe at his headlining fitted with the creases left to right and vinyl interior.

Never easy doing a resto on a budget and they do cost more than you expect.
