Great thanks for posting! I like the illustration of the blue Mini used for the seat covers, that back end is seriously out of shape, 12 inch wheels too? :)

Spot the Speedwell stuff?

In fairness to Halfrauds I have a set of their 1960's scissor action vehicle ramps which are built like the proverbial brick outhouse and are fantastic quality.

Did we really buy some of this old tat? That little WIPAC elbow light a few pages down was interesting. When I was stripping out my cop car for restoration I found one of those thinggies in the bottom of the door, under the cardboard bottom liner. There was also a suitable hole in the top door frame where it had been originally fitted, presumably by the cops. I was going to re-fit it but with new doors......., I thought better of it......! Still works too Used for reading their first generation sat-nav - or the AA book to you and me!
