General Comments:

Wow! An amazingly insane, but clever way to treat a three ton stateley home. Phenomenal. Better than a Bentley.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 27 twin cam Sunbeam. It is the best vintage car I have ever driven. I once owned a four and a half litre Bentley, 1929 with only 33000 miles from new. The Sunbeam surpasses the Bentley in every way. It does with sofistication what Bentley did with brute force.
