I am currently very satisfied with what I own.

As we say when making a trip with our bikes with sidecar: Carry only the most necessary with us pantsdown

The Skoda auto, distance control, auto start, auxiliary heating with control via smartphone, lot of space in the boot and various other electronic helpers) is very pleasant for my work and as a travel car. So it's almost fun to drive the trailer in a traffic jam on the highway.

And my 4/4 love woohoo happy3

However, the trailer is a compromise. If I would buy another trailer, 10 inch wheels might have been better to load, because the 4/4 can only be driven onto the trailer on an absolutely flat surface without rubbing the exhaust pipe over the asphalt.

Neilda, fantastic car, must have been very interesting driving around in it, given how low it is, and I guess you dare not put a foot wrong or you`d risk ending up in the press..!!!

The Ford GT's all had the same spec. A 5.4 Litre V8 supercharged engine. They were rated as being 550bhp, but most made closer to 600.

My +8 is actually noticeably lower than the GT. I don't think I ever grounded the GT, but had to fit a sump guard to the 8 which has saved the engine numerous times.

I leave it to your imaginations as to the fun that vehicle afforded!

Only possible if you are short of stature (sorry Simon!) or a contortionist! I did manage it in a TR3 though!
