Reading though this thread i only have one question.

A Jaguar V12. Why?????????

What good could have come of that?

In what parallel universe could that have improved your life?

Don't get me wrong, I like them . They are heavy. Good cats too. They weigh in well. Especially with the damp carpets it will have.

Anyway nice Merc. Can a zillion African taxi drivers be wrong? ( I don't know. Genuine question)

Er...this is Autoshite not Choice magazine :)

Only thing worse than buying a shoddy V12 Jag is being dull enough to want to drive around in a piece of industrial design masquerading as an automobile. A four pot too- what kind of fool could possibly think that was a good idea!

Hmm

The 405 and R16 are four pots and they are almost the perfect cars in their own way.

The engine in the V12 Jag is generally no problem at all though. Just a shame the rest of the car is shite

Not everyone likes a Jag. If a cars were lunches, a 4-pot Merc would be a salad. Lots of people like a salad, but no great story ever started with one. As for the Jag, the barman may throw in a packet of peanuts if you're really hungry...

Not only can they, they actually are. In fact, they are hardly ever right.

That's just one thing they have in common with Berlin taxi drivers, or taxi drivers anywhere, while I'm at it,

except those taxi drivers that are old enough to remember hooning a Checker Marathon through Noo Yawk.

Anyway, Spikey and I prepared for the journey back.
 
43198884002_99717fdb6e_b.jpg
 
 
We drove through farmland.
 
42343880815_d8b984b787_b.jpg
 
 
We left farmland and had a break.

We travelled along an empty road while others queued on one of those motorways because they are mercilessly stupid, but allowed to vote.
 
43247718871_22190d3533_b.jpg
 
 
It was nice there.

A bridge was crossed.

That's a house there.

Since it's in England, I bet it's expensive.
 
 
 
We just followed the road.

We continued on an evidently overpopulated planet.

While people with less brains queued on one of those motorways there, which they do every fucking day, except the one they go to cast their vote.

Scary shit that.

Being stuck in a queue on a motorway is doubly frustrating as they have removed the one big advantage of any other carriageway - the ability to legally turn around and go the other way

I tend to do a lot of my travelling by motorway as it's the quickest way and being multi-laned it's easy to overtake the inferior slower cars. However after a week on a Greek holiday island, I've got used to bimbling at my own speed. Especially helped by the fact that speed limits seem advisory and the rough roads slow the traffic down more than any speed bump can.

Tempted to go out and have a bumble along back roads in the future.

Yup. The M2 was completely closed because accident and all traffic was being funnelled off at fortwilliam. Chaos.

I shouldn't need to answer this Mr Junkman, such a question should have an obvious answer to a good man such as yourself! However I will answer this for you in the form of a rhetorical question.

Why would I want to spend any longer than is necessary in my modern plastic kraut, devil fueled, post-1986, 4 cylinder biscuit tin?

This is true. Your thoughts on driving on non-motorways has made me think about shedding the MatchBox TT and using the MGB as a daily for a bit. Just lacking the required number of cylinders. However the correct number of cylinder version is a bit out of my pauper paygrade.
