Antibiotics was close, it was ‘Dentistry’
Love it or hate it, it was a lot worse in the past.

Agreed. Had a very painful experience with a local dentist in the mid 1960's. But in the late 1970's an Irish dentist restored my faith after spending hours trying to find a solution to a very painful abcess.
I still ma aware of Dentists though.
:mrgreen: the only toothy one I could find. :D

A time machine back to August '59 with a couple of months of worth of 2019 wages burning a hole in my pocket.
Visit a few Austin / Morris dealerships, pick up a few early launch cars, quick trip to a hermetically sealed storage location that survives to this day, up on axle stands, quick douse of wax, dust covers in place, store in a cool dry location etc for approx 60 years......
(I'm still working on the finer details of this plan, need to get some age appropriate clothes etc so I dont stand out as a "not from 1950's bloke", once the teething troubles are ironed out I may make another trip back around 1963, some Cooper badged cars on the shopping list) :lol:

My dream too but £500 invested in the stock market in 1959 would be worth £50,000 today (and no hermetically sealed garage rental to pay)

I'd go to New York in the '60s and buy a couple of Andy Warhol Brillo boxes and some Marilyn Monroe screen prints.

Back to King Street in Hammersmith in the '60s to see all those lovely coachbuilt Minis coming and going at Radford's workshop.
