And you're spot on. I have distinct misgivings about Which? and its current methodologies and tactics.

It's a DKW Munga, I think?? Built by Auto Union between 1956 and 1968.

I notice these were all in Ian's list claiming innocence, so how do they explain the difference in their figures?

Lovely to see the Spitfires. We got married over 40 yrs ago and we went off on honeymoon in one!
I have found a couple of old pics,which I will try to attach.
The wire wheels set it off well, but I never was too happy cornering in it!
I had forgotten it had a (then) fashionable tank aerial. I kept that and it went on a variety  of
later cars. One year a mk4 Cortina I had was buried in a snowdrift near Bodrhyddan. Had it not been for the
aerial the snow plough would have driven straight into the back of the car. I have never seen snow like it
I would love to see a pic! Typically I didn't have a camera with me!

Nice! Yours was a mk3 Spitfire, you are right about the wire wheels, not very strong at all, mine had them when I bought it but I removed them!

Thinking toys/models, I bought a couple of my brothers models that run on salt water for Christmas. This type of thing:

The search for a new car for Mrs B still continues, but we are in no real hurry. We test drove the Jaguar XF, a big disappointment in all senses of the word. Although we booked a test drive weeks in advance, categorically stating that we did NOT want to test the R Sport, yes, when we did arrive for the test drive, they only had an R Sport; the salesman on his day off had taken the other demonstrator that we wanted to test! We did however take the R Sport out and were decidedly unimpressed; we understood why the salesman had taken the Portfolio version, the wind and road noise on the R Sport was excessive, the ride uncomfortable and bits of the interior decidedly 'low rent', as was the Jaguar dealer experience, which puts us off the forth-coming F-Pace. We test drove a Lexus RX200 hybrid, a space age machine, heated and cooled seats, every conceivable extra. 50 mpg plus around town on mainly the electric motor, but then on the motorway, down to 20 - 30 something mpg and a dreadfully sluggish uptake, like driving through treacle, but the worst thing was the solid unforgiving hardness of the ride, drive over a 10p piece and you could tell if it was heads or tails. Mrs B was unimpressed by the Mercs, she previously had Merc coupe which she loved but she found the present crop uninspiring. The most impressive car so far? The VW Touareg, nicely built, luxury, good driving position and excellent ride, and she can get her golfist bats in the boot. But, - hold the front page - there's a new, bigger Tiguan coming, with modern technology and 217bhp. Now, that might be worth waiting for.
