Here’s today’s premise: Imagine you are part of the US Air Force based in the UK (I rather think I’d be called Hank) and you enjoy driving. What do you choose to make your journeys between bases? Loyalty dictates that you should pick the new, all-American Boss 302 Mustang. But can it really cope with the narrow, bumpy and, above all, twisting roads that interlock middle England? Wouldn’t you instead be better off accepting defeat, swallowing your national pride and picking a German V8 with some independent rear suspension…?
The particular part of middle England where we find ourselves today is littered with ex-USAF bases.
