Re: Creator of original Range Rover dies cycling

Wow! A lot of reactions to my tongue-in-cheek post about Jaguar style. I have to agree about most of the comments about cars changing the world (usually for the worse), but they would equally apply to air travel - an equally polluting human activity. I wonder how many people on here have just flown ...

Jaguars, however (I joined Jaguar in 1990, years before the merger), are wonderful cars with style and elegance driven by decent law-abiding peop...

Re: Where were you in '73

Yes little Willy Hague was at Wath, a few years behind me though. I can't say I remember him, but my mate Steve failed his A levels and stayed on for another year to retake them and took great pleasure in repeatedly sending young William to the back of the dinner queue. I know he wasn't exactly popu...
