I am thinking that 260 in Gateshead has a bit of a chequered history IIRC.

That lazy tuned, understressed Mustang V8 has enormous appeal to me and a good few others.
Having owned two V8ís of the ex Buick variety - any V8 is a sound of beauty to my ears.

And you certainly donít buy one if you want economy.

So references to frequent fuel fill ups are all a bit silly really

With the natural progression, that Buick V8 became a bit like Trigger's Broom.
