What might have been.....

I guess we all know about the XJ41/42 but just found a link on Facebook.

I have seen it before but it has been updated with some photos............

Impressive photography, impressive prototypes! Strange low-gloss light reflections by the way, a matter of lighting or paint? I doubt whether I am going to remember all those details, but it is a nice read. I find 'Austin Rover Online' always a combination of wide knowledge, well written and interestingly well illustrated. They are not short of words and I like that. Although I recognise my own habit of writing, I see that it has the drawback of not being able to finish reading, in particular on the monday morning …

This stuck me, the man on the left is clearly taking a photo with his digital compact camera of Lyons and Randle. Although, digital compact camera? In the early eighties?!

I think you will find that the moustached man is in fact operating a very advanced 3D augmented reality holographic power-point presentation - somewhat in the style of Tommy Cooper.
