But it was fun to have a passenger in the car when it started to rain - they never really believed you that as long as we didn't stop we would be dry. Once they realized that, they would actually encourage the kind of bonzai driving it took to keep moving in a crowded area (which has always been my natural tendency anyway)...

My comment about the polarizer was very much an inside joke. You can't mount a polarizer (or any other filter) on that big front element eyeball of the Oly 7-14mm.

I could or would spray one on for you if I got close enough...

In So Cal I had a BGT, wound it up once to 114 on the clock once but scared the do-do out of my date. Funny I could never get her to date me again.

A bit strange.... Must be the only D-type without a fin behind the driver and possibly the only one with a jag badge on the bonnet and with a totally non-original grill.....

Yep. But it's not a copy - it is original.
