Amazed no mention so far of the front page article from Sir John last Saturday.

Absolutely correct in his thoughts on enjoying motoring in a realistic manner.

I was tempted to write something about it straight away, but then thought I'll see what other people say first. I'm not sure what the implications are that no one said anything!

When most motoring writing is so much of the same, I thought it was wonderful to read something a bit different. I was particulary interested in his point 'If the joy of driving is to you nothing less than dashing along the Riviera like James Bond in some exotic machine, you are destined to spend most of your motoring life disappointed and frustrated. If, on the other hand you can discover the joy of driving on local roads in your modest family car, your motoring life will be rich and rewarding.'

I still enjoy nothing more on a sunny day than driving around for the sheer hell of it. When I stop enjoy doing that, then I know that it is time to give up driving altogether.

All right for Sir John to preach, he has had his fun and plenty of it.

I have lodged my comments with him, as requested.

No thanks; I'd upset a minority on here very much!

Why not live dangerously? I'm even more intrigued now!

I, too, agree with his sentiments -

and am pointing others to his article.

Paul,

Tomo may not let on what he's written but I can just see Sir John in his office when he gets it....

"Blimey there's a bloke here writing like Victor Meldrew on acid".

Wondered if anyone would comment on Sir John's photo on the front page and a likeness to a certain Liverpudlian actor.

Wondered if he went to Peter Hall DT Editor and said "Gizza job!"

But well said Sir John. Now I'd better get writing to balance up the input from N of the Border! You should have kept quiet!
