what is this talk about lowered? must be more cockney rhyming slang
SD1 was not my favourite in 1976 when it suddenly appeared on the scene and I realised that the P6 production was over!
however, after a few years , it did "grow on me" and I slowly changed my mind, my father in law had one and on my wedding night (quite a few years back) I was allowed to borrowed it for an "outing" with the missus , did enjoy that!! remember my father in law telling me that one engine it had simply blew up, had to go in for major repairs (company car)
