If only I had fifty grand to spare!

Never thought I really fancied cars.... Mine always becomes a work horse, carrying around a load of old clobber. If I have more than one or two passengers at a time, I always have to have a grand clear-out, rather like emptying the spare room of the house for a surprise visitor! But today, whilst doing our regular "Insider's Guide" to Something Interesting To Do This Weekend - I found myself peering into the glossy catalogue for an auction of "fine historic automobiles" at Ascot Racecourse. No I didn't fancy Chris Evans' old Ferrari (estimate: £32,000) nor even the John Wayne "Brannigan" E type Jag (it was a movie, by the way - in 1966). For me, the quintessentially stylish 1953 Jaguar Roadster with cream body and red leather interior. It just sighs Hitchcock/Grace Kelly at you, doesn't it? If I have any filthy rich millionaires reading my blog, please note - this is what I would like for Christmas. I can only just afford the big sunglasses and long, white chiffon scarf it would demand! Oh, and I'd have to check if my garage is big enough.
