Many years ago, when Rootes Group conglomerate manufactured so many of the British cars, most used Lucas electrics and had electrical problems, same as the British motorcycles (if I'm not mistaken).  Had a Hillman Minx in the 1960's! 

Best FORD/British collaboration was the Sunbeam Tiger w/289 Ford V8 (Alpine's big brother)  Held the road like it was on rails ;  Austin Healey 2000 MkIII; not so much..


Before my time but classy stuff.


Lotus Ford were iconic. Some of the coppers I used to work with were still reminiscing about the 2.3L lotus Cortinas, 30 years later.

Ok, a 15 is still worth what my brand new is worth. Yet a bit better off road. Wink


Grin A land Rover is "a bit" better.

So, international cooperation between companies can give us electrifying products.

Is this an argument to allow foreign investment in locally owned companies, without limitation?


What about the international movement of key staff members regardless of national boundaries?

[modest] I was Regimental off road champion in Landy Defenders [\modest]


I suspect that the RR is equal, but this one has all automatic shit, not simple 2/4low/4high settings...



Did I ever tell LNF how my Regiment cheated in the off road comps?

No, no, you deliberately misunderstand me for comic effect.

I meant "electrifying" figuratively.
