Mister Towed is on a distinguished road

Have now binge-watched the whole series and it's a fascinating journey.

He did a fantastic job with the development of the car and can even register it for the road in California using a similar rebody process to the UK.

The only thing I wasn't keen on was his bespoke gear-change linkage which to me appeared to give pretty clumsy and long travel changes.

It's a shame the Alfa gearlever appeared to have been cut off during engine and gearbox removal as I felt it would have been within reach of the driver. After all, they stick out of the dash pretty much horizontally in the donor Spider giving an up-down plane of movement rather than aft-fore.

Bloody lovely car, though.
