I don't know about 'nice', but hopefully this will do.

I tried to get him to move, but as you can see, he was intent on working on that restoration throughout the show. At this point he was both draining a mug of tea whilst at the same time carefully polishing off a third or fourth bacon sandwich. I'm sure many were inspired by this level of commitment.

the silly old fool ! I like the photo its clear and informative , all the car needs is a set of wheels and a flat screen and Bobs your uncle . I had been pleased to find what I had thought were correct headlamps at Beaulieu , perhaps the rims are too deep on "reflection " ....groan
