I'm with you, keep it simple, but add a few useful gizmos to make the car a little "different". That is what the Mark VII was and that's what I like about it. :mrgreen:

Actually, the Mark was years ahead of other cars in electronics and probably not far behind today's cars. The one big difference is the Mark did not have very much computer control on the engine, that came a few years later after 95.

Yes you are right, it was ahead of it's time for the time it was being made. What I ment was, compare it with one of todays cars with all their fancy electronic crap and the Mark VII looks pretty tame (simple). I like simple :lol: :mrgreen:
