Hi - '36 Lt12/4 Ascot VG choice. Unlike the '61 Westminster its limits are reached at low speeds (especially uphill).

In my brother's last year at school he and his best mate were the only ones NOT to write off a car in a smash. At least one of these cars was a then new '61 Westminster and another was a Super Snipe.

The present generation are better at multi-tasking - texting while driving, taking drugs etc - but have lost the art of driving on ice and snow.
