God Bless Youtube!
Here's an interesting series of videos, I thought you folks would like to watch. It's hosted by motor mouth Sir Jeremy Clarkson and it's a great insight into history:
And that's why Britain have no car industry left.
The last time I tried to support the British motoring industry, buying a 2002 Rover 25 for my wife. It died on her with only 2.000 miles. Not to mention the car came riddled with faults from the assembly line.
The death of the British car industry is (very) sad. But you can't help thinking that we had it coming. How on earth, a country that gave the world, the Aston Martin DB5, Jaguar E-Type, Jaguar XJ220, McLaren F1 and Range-Rover. Could come up, with something cathastrophically horrendous like the Austin Allegro?
"Jeremy Clarkson's Cars Years" was originally exhibited in 2000. It was done between the old clinical/boring Top Gear format aired until 2001, and the arrival of the "bold" politically incorrect new series in 2002.
