Sorry, getting cantankerous in my old age.

it's just that 45 years ago I overhauled gearboxes instead of fitting new ones, then there was reaming the king pin bearings, Computers or ECU 's were many years into the future.

My first car, I think it was around 16 years old when I bought it. 0-60 about 2 weeks, and that was the top speed. A good bird puller in it's time though. No heater or Radio, I fitted a rear screen demister but the battery kept going flat. I did not need front fog lights though as the front windscreen could be wound up to open so making it easier to see when it was foggy.

As soon as the first motorway opened, a few miles near Preston Lancs I managed 70mph briefly.
