    Greta’s gone diesel?

    Yes, she comes from a rather privileged background, as do most of the people that like to lecture us about such things.

    Greta’s gone diesel?

    the trouble is though the message she’s peddling to the kids is neither fair nor accurate. I actually take the view that she is a vulnerable child being exploited.

    How about £85k for a range rover? Ok, so it’s a velar prototype but I’ve also seen £65k being asked for a suffix A. Prices have gone mental over the last few years, since defender production stopped really.

    They had the highest kill rate relative to attrition rate, mostly because they were already very experienced at fighting the Germans.

    The problem with the European theatre spitfires was they were very under gunned relative to the German aircraft, the .303 guns it was fitted with being nowhere near enough. I forget what the Germans had, possibly 30mm. We were doing a pickup from Biggin hill a few weeks back and the spitfires...

    I was watching a thing about the spitfire the other night, the pilots reckoned the later bigger engined ones, distinguishable by the multi bladed prop, weren’t as nice to fly. The engine outgrew the airframe.

    That is true, and also tax classes, although most of the low emission zones in the UK will at least not apply to classics. I'm sure te fact there is a vibrant classic car club in the houses of parliament has nothing to do with that!!
