Course not but you would get “bom bom bom bom Esso Blue, ask for it by name” (The rubbish you store in your memory for years)

Prefer to wait a few Years later .. & get given my Esso "Tigers Tail " .. explanation to those of you younger than most others on this Forum .. Esso did a publicity stunt in the 60,s if you got Esso Petrol they gave away an orange shade of Fabric with black marks on .. Yes this was the "Tigers Tail"..the Esso publicity campaigns intention was that you were to tie your "Tiger Tail "onto your fuel filler neck & go for a drive .. yes back then we were all 8-) & today :oops: :lol:

The Corgi Lotus Elan could be found with this decal back in the 1960's

It's like what my painter friend Donald said to me
"Stick a fork in their ass and turn them over, they're done"

Not mini related but something different from yrs gone by.

Mk1 Capri 3 L wings rotted away at front so we cut rot out and fitted Mk 1 Escort front panel that we had laying about.
