Plain and simple and uncomplicated


Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, allowing us to do things more quickly and efficiently. But too often it seems to make things harder, leaving us with fifty-button remote controls, digital cameras with hundreds of mysterious features and book-length manuals, and cars with dashboard systems worthy of the space shuttle.

Give me the plain and simple and uncomplicated dashboard of a vintage car any time. No manual to read, just a couple of switches that need flicking and you’re on your way!

1953 Austin Healey BN1

1971 Aston Martin DBS V8 Manual

1959 Triumph TR3A

1966 Jaguar 3.8 MK.II

1964 Mustang 289 V8 Manual

1955 Triumph TR2 - in progress

1968 Jaguar E-type 4.2 Series 1½ Manual

And those thin, sometimes big, steering wheels, some made of lovely wood, that you can really get a grip on! Man, that's the way to go! 

The elegant dashboard of a 1954 Morgan car is technological simplicity.

Happy New Year 2016!


I hope that, in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
So Happy New Year and safe driving!
