Thanks for that: I thoroughly enjoyed it. Harry Metcalf's videos are always excellent, very detailed and practical, giving a really good impression of what the cars are like in the real world, not just a load of sliding around on a track accompanied by "ooh"s, "aah"s and "phwoar"s that you get from so many so-called road testers.

It is very interesting seeing the TR alongside a Countach - it looks almost conservative and definitely styled in the best possible taste in comparison to something rather silly out of "Thunderbirds".

Best wishes, John

Yes, I agree. The look out the rear view of the Countach we see in the video was very telling. I have heard and read about the lack of backup vision Lambo drivers endure, but did not actually see it until I watched Harry's video. I also like how he shows us the TR interior in detail. I looked for a Harry's Garage Countach video, but did not find one. Maybe he hasn't done one yet.

Cheers,
Scott

Enjoy the journey so much you don't care how long it takes to get there.

Cannot agree more. The best yt channels I know of that kind (detailed review of a car) are above mentioned and Jay Leno's Garage, I both immensely enjoy in watching their informative videos.

To finish on topic, here is some new video.

Best of luck to you Zachary, stay focused, don't settle, read the forums, go in knowledgeable.
Life is short, don't get married too soon and get a pre-nup, use protection now, stay in school. With all that said, V-12's are freaking awesome and worth the wait.

I like people like you.

If only people around here would be more like that. All my friends are committed to have a kid by the age of 20(?), but I wish to get a girlfriend that's just as inexpensive and a smart shopper as I am. No children before 25. Just so I know I will be on my feet when I can support a little one of my own. Hopefully my wife will be Frugal, Because when I marry her, I have no money. None.

That's just how it is.

By the by, my current girl just bought a new mustang 2 months back

worst, mistake, ever. New car =
