I can't believe that they claim it's evolved over 67 years !!! They've obviously never owned/driven one !!

67 years and never managed to manufacture a comfortable seat so I can understand why they themselves admit no chance of meeting any new emission regs!

Don't even mention the seat, I was out for 8 hours last night shooting & my back's still aching now !! How they can charge 20,000 plus for a vehicle with a seat that's that bad is beyond belief..

I suppose part of the attraction is the similarity to driving a boat. As I have to take into consideration wind direction & the vague steering as I'm driving it. Don't get me wrong, it's a great vehicle (of choice) for work but boy is it uncomfortable. Spent a bit of time welding the steps back on and replacing the drivers door stay this week....
