Yes George it was more the availability of spaces down here as you surmised, I am loving the thought of this car transforming maybe into a Riva as I'm sure they have taken a few styling cues from that lovely boat and of course we have a river nearby to plop it into wink
. For a moment there thought you were talking about a Lada.

Yes I know it is the least attractive feature I'll have to give you that one wink but taken as a whole I'd love one.
These will be a stratospheric price so I don't think I will need to get used to living with it grin2.

I do like the Maser cabriolet apart from the white interior, but that Maybach is in a different league to me.

The interior of the Maybach is surely more South LA than Essex after all P&A Woods are in Essex, enough said I think. As for the Masser, a beautiful car which my neighbour down the road is in the process of buying however with that beautiful Italian landscape as a backdrop, even a Lada would look good.


Here for a good time not a long time!!

I love the depth of engineering in the Toyota. Below the surface is quality that you can feel.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Peter,
I always liked that Maserati, both tin- and soft top. I wonder if they are fun to drive too?

Bert
