Yeah, that episode is a rerun and I saw it several months ago when I was
off the list.  P*ssed me off too.  So did last month's Special Interest
Autos, BTW.  Guy writing on the Cortina, compared it with a '63 MGB and
claimed the B had no spirit.  Copy like that is unnecessary - especially in
an enthusiast magazine where folks ought to know better.

But I feel better now.
