A car nut doesn't convert a classic car like that to run on E85 Bio Ethanol   :doh:

Other than that the car is stunning

He's also a save the planet nut, strange how he merged the two leanings.

Nah it isn't run on wine, it is run on the further fermentation of the grape waste material that isn't used in wine production. But basically an E85 ethanol capable motor

While the royal wedding of Kate and William may have appeared to be a boy-free zone - and an unwelcome intrusion on the Swans v Blues game that headlined Friday night for most Republicans - the truth is there was plenty of heavy metal car stuff going on to distract from the grand unveiling of this century's most awaited white frock.

An estimated two billion people around the world watched the grand nuptials, so the preceding hour or two could be seen as a mighty free kick for the brands chosen by The Palace to transport folk to Westminster Abbey.

The list of pukkha British carmakers that glided from Buck House to Westminster could not be faulted and, of course, there was not a Mercedes, BMW or Audi to be seen.

Advertisement: Story continues below
Kate Middleton arrived in the royal stable's Rolls-Royce that was damaged in a run-in with protesters last year, but since returned to pristine condition.

The Queen and Prince Phillip were in a Bentley with fishbowl (and bullet proof) glasswork that, like the bride's Roller, had been modified by British coachbuilders.

For those who tuned in earlier, there was at leat ten minutes footage of Kate's family cruising the streets in a svelte Jaguar XJ on their way to the church. And don't forget, the real royalty - Posh and Becks, Elton and our Thorpey, and Julia of course, - were only seen arriving on foot.

Following them all were what we have to presume were the security detail in their Range Rovers - their logos above the grille bigger than the captions announcing dignitaries on the screen below.

Perhaps the most poignant moment was members of the royal household shooting out of the palace in a convoy of Ford Transit vans, euphemistically referred to by the BBC commentators as "coaches".

Never mind that all these British marques are now owned by the Indians (Land Rover and Jaguar), or least of all, the Germans (Bentley and Rolls-Royce). Members of the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family (more latterly the Windsors) have had similar successful re-branding.

A range of stunning, coachbuilt cars got the couple to the church on time. The four horsepower convertible that took them home seemed more celebrationary, and a traditional conveyance of which most newlyweds could only dream. God bless.

24,000 Facebook fans and counting: Pippa Middleton's bum attracts quite a following ( I think it's up to 65,000 now)
