“….. for a vintage wine may not be hurried to maturity or a new motor car launched precipitately upon the market ….. Figures, which cause even its designers (Mr W.O.

Hey, you guys know your stuff. WO also went on to play a role in designing Lagonda's post war six banger that wound up in the Aston Martin DB2, though much credit goes Willy Watson.
