Yes it's sad to see these beutiful designs dissapear like the old cars most people agree the old cars looked much better than the average run of the mill modern types why do they not redo a few older designs I am sure there must be a reason even with modern safety features built in the don't do it I wonder why?This would also work for some of the beautiful old machine designs though not all of course.Alistair
