Listen To The Britishest Man In The World Tell You About 1973 Cars

Ah, the Earl's Court Motor Show. It's such a British motor show that anyone even walking past it will find they've grown a pair of SU carbs on their lungs and they can no longer reliably turn on lights. And here it is, in full color!

This video is not just full of great cars, it also has some delightful examples of the casual sexism and racism of the time — stick around to the Rolls-Royce part at the end to hear some painful and needless accents from the narrator. It's also fascinating to see that, apparently, the Russians and Japanese were considered equal threats to the British car industry. Well, they were half right!
