This is just perfection.

 

I've been staring at that swoopy arse with the summer dew beading off it for about half an hour now, and I think I'm having a quasi-mystical experience.

 

Wonderful, just wonderful.

Actually Bobthebeard will take issue with you there.

 

But oh boy, what a fucking glorious piece of kit you've bought yourself there!  I am, as Dan suspected, lime green with envy.  I love the old cars, the older the better really, up to just about where you are at!  Well bought, young man. 

 

Anyone want a Cadillac?

neither does the radio.........

 

Have you left it on long enough?

It may take several minutes for the valves to warm up.

In the beginning I also always assumed the radios are broken and switched them off again.

One day I must have forgotten and when I returned to the car, there was some Rock'N'Roll coming from it.

Gave me a right old Christine moment that.
