This film is about our collective love of motor cars, however polluting they may be. In making this film, I share my own hypocrisy, as in 2021, I bought an old 1959 Land Rover [Series II] to use locally for my gardening and voluntary work. This old vehicle was bought out of nostalgia [my grandfather, Rab Scott, was an orchardman and used to travel from orchard to orchard, and farm to farm, in his Series II Land Rover].
