There I was wondering just what to bore you with on a Friday when Bluebeards Revenge, purveyors of a male shaving stuff informed me that the Ford Mustang has been voted ‘manliest car’ on the planet. Obviously that’s completely wrong especially as last Friday I bought the second most manly car ever, a big black 7 Series.
I know it’s the second most manly car, because as a proper Land Rover owner, I know for certain that only real men and women can drive it without moaning about the heavy clutch, obstructive gearchange and crash bang wallop ride. I would argue that my currently unwell 1964 Mini Cooper is in at three on the grounds that being so titchy I have nothing to prove in the manliness department at all. Some might disagree and here is the full listing for you to disagree with. Clearly they interviewed a whole bunch of confirmed metrosexuals.

In the meantime can you give me your ten pence worth on all this nonsense? A tub of that Bluebeards Revenge stuff plus a shaving brush for the very best suggestion, but you have to live in the UK, me hearties.
