A thing now rarely seen A thing now rarely seen

One of these. No, not the car itself. The fact that it is:

Air conditioning, or perhaps not Air conditioning, or perhaps not

Turned it on today and thought I heard a slight whistling/scratching noise from the front. Later realised that the system was running continually when turned on. Don’t know if it’s actually working as it’s a cold day.

If you go into a pub here, you order beer*/lager/whatever by the pint (a proper pint, not the miserable little American one) or by the glass.

6/03! 6/03!

Time for the Tatra 603 then.

This is a Koenigsegg Jesko.

This thing. Seen it before but this is the first time I could grab a picture.

Pacers, compared Pacers, compared

Here’s a yellow Pacer in Sweden.

Aaaaand...we’ve finished. Having combined the 20 with the 30 there are no more numbered Renaults left.

A 1974 Land Rover (no, not a Defender. Just a Land Rover)

This thing. I’ve seen it before, but it’s still cute.

21! 21!

One of the last to have a number, made from 1988 to 1995 (and longer in developing markets)

20!* 20!*
