A great shame.

You could not even get into the showroom without first being vetted, let alone buy one.

The works director at 91 years old must have been due for retirement anyway.
Shame orders dropped from over 200 a year to under 20.

I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

But.....they weren't very good were they? Eccentric granted, unusual too but good? :confused:

Must have been because the vetting had got lax - Liam Gallagher!

A shame - but sorry to be ageist but a works manager of 91 - you can trade on the past for only a certain amount of time.
