classic cars in the West Midlands for hire?

The older boy wants a classic car for prom in Staffordshire near Wolverhampton. I found Kitt for £250 for five hours, but it didn't have back seats. The only car available from one classic car website I found is a 1979 Austin Allegro for £300 for the day. Hugely wrong on so many levels. How can I find a classic car in the West Midlands for a middle of the week prom in June?

I read/watched these long ago. This is one classic romantic-comedy and various SF/F novels and short stories. [more inside]

Windows 7 - "Windows Classic" theme is the only one that doesn't hang, what gives?

I'm on a company provided Windows 7 laptop. Here's what I know: When using the "Windows Classic" Theme (right click on desktop>personalize>select "Windows Classic" theme), Windows Explorer does NOT hang/hourglass for ~30 seconds when accessing files/navigating folders. All clicks to save files, navigate through local and distributed files (our MyDocs folder is stored on the Company's distributed file system), etc., are immediately responsive. When using ANY other theme, clicking on navigation of files (local and DFS, even when not connected to the company network) hangs for 10-30 seconds. What gives? Do all of the themes (minus the "Classic" theme) have some sort of "network call" that look through My Docs (which is technically on the DFS/my company's servers, that has a 30 timeout if the network doesn't respond?) Any ideas how to fix this (change a registry setting, ask the company IT team to make a change to a group policy setting, etc.)? What's so special about the "Windows Classic" theme? It's ugly, but it saves me 30 seconds every time I touch a file, open windows explorer, etc. Thanks in advance!

What are the best books being published in the modern age?

Best Modern Books Filter: Darwin's Origin of Species, Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, Smith's The Wealth of Nations... these books have stood the test of time and should probably be on my bookshelf (only Darwin right now). What non-fiction books have been published in the past 50 years that will also stand the test of time, that I should definitely own and read, that are classics of their field or, more to the point, any field? Bonus points for books published in the last 10 years.
