John Noakes RIP

For those of a certain age this is sad news - BBC News website has just announced the passing of "Blue Peter" actionman presenter John "Get down Shep" Noakes at 83 years old. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.
2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, but not for much longer........
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

Very sad.
Part of my formative years was with John Noakes showing how it could be done.
And thankfully this particular celeb wasn't more recently tainted by the scandles some of his contemporaries were.
