My wing mirrors are useless

Sorry guys, I’m new to all this, my last ‘classic’ car was a 74 Land Rover where the wing mirrors were great but the right pedal began a gentle series of events that ended up at 40mph.

Does take some getting used to! Well done. :)

Gosh, that’s a bit low at the back

Is there a helicopter in the boot?
