The “Hornets’ Nest” has been stirred up. Find above my impression of the 1962 “Silver Cloud.” (With thicker sound absorption material, thicker carpet, and more veneer, of course!)
After the M.G. Midget/Sprite travesty, B.M.C. have now dragged the “Hornet” through the mire. I suppose “Eustace Watkins Daytona Special” will be an extra on our new “luxury” Hornet. That my post-vintage thoroughbred could now be taken for a “Minny.” Bah!
I await the “Wasp” with horror. It will probably be a luxury lawnmower, or go-kart with Wolseley radiator shell!
I see our friends the B.M.C. are at it again with their well-tried formula of stick another radiator grille and a few quid on it and announce a new car.
So the Mini Twins have become Quadruplets, and, O my gawd! they’ve called them H’elfs and ‘Ornets. Where is the comparison? Insignificant bumble bees, rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb.
