They look good but do they have driver assist, air conditioned seats, collision alerts, blue tooth music streaming, digital radio and so on.

I am not sure I could drive one of those cars now - you become reliant on the technology so quickly.

I built up three in my lifetime - it is a hell of a job but satisfying..  Sadly, times were hard and they were all sold for a decent profit at the time - now I regret selling them..

I bought two again which my son and I were going to tackle - alas the project did not even start - always something else - I sold them too.

I converted my old 110 SWB garrie into a V8 back in the day. That was good fun.

I'm still not sure how I survived that period in my life. Cruising between Okahandja and Karibib one night, the bonnet with the spare tire, flipped right over the top. Luckily the land rover had very basic hinges so that it was easy to remove the bonnet completely if you needed to work on it, which was pretty often anyway.

If the hinges had caught that night, I'd be MIA.

My dad used to be a “Vauxhall man“. Our earliest family car that I can remember.

Daai was 'n 57 myne was 'n '59.. Dit was moer lank terug.  Die wit Datsun het later 'n rally kar geword.

These were the last two, but alas I never finished them - sold them for 6 times what I paid ...bargain.

Ek het onlangs by ‘n petrolstasie gestop en hierdie foto geneem:

The good old days when you and your friends could get together for a braai (BBQ) stand around the car engine, talk, even get your hands in there.

Then time moved on and you are too scared to even open the engine to look and get confused.
