A standard MGB also has a similar turning circle to the Queen Mary (says
he who just put 205/60 tyres on his poor little car)!

But slightly more on topic...

After driving around my local track in a MkIV Sprite racing car without
a windscreen gave me an appreciation for just what sort of drag that
hunk of framed glass must add to my car (without a roof).  

As slightly raked as it is, I felt some similarity between the 'circular
plate ("Circular plate: Cd = 1.17") and my windscreen sticking up there.

Oh no... don't do it... I must control myself and NOT go 'Brooklands"
(that would be the last straw!!!).
