What’s a make perfect
No it’s makes prefect
Actually, Ford UK make Prefect.
So what are they? Worms, flamingos, candy canes, intestines?
Wlong plactice make pervert.
Wit damn near 1.5 billion, they got damn good at it, at least.
@DnT 0424. Did you ever observe, that many of those old side-valve fours, did not have a water pump?
The cooling worked by convection. A spectacular failure in this climate.
There was one saving grace.
One could roast potatoes on the cylinder head.
That is one feature, that all these modern computerised, all seeing all doing, expensive heaps of crap, cannot offer.
During the couple of years, my young wife and I spent in NZ. (My job reasons) Our car could not make the climb over the mountain from Hamilton to Raglan, in one go. It needed to cool down, and have a rest.
So! She and I would set up sn impromptu “Cafe du pavé ” by the roadside. Where we would sit, eating cold chicken and hot roast potatoes, with a bottle of good red.
Not only was the car cool and rested, but so were we.
@FB: No way to tell, yet; they’re still practicing.
So! She hasn’t become prefect yet?
You will have to colon the designer, to find out.
@Marum 0503: My brother had one of those old Prefects. I don’t recall any overheating, but that 10BHP(?) lump did break a rear axle.
Ford Prefects really come from Betelgeuse and work for a certain publishing company whose slogan is “Don’t Panic”.
Strange thing I never had to practise anything to become a school prefect
