Indeed. Here she is getting plenty of attention, as well as coverage of the journey there and back.

 

I'm really not convinced that the Invacar makes an ideal long-distance vehicle.

People considered me mad for driving it there, but trailering is not always safer...

Sadly, that seemed to happen after the show.

Ohh shit, what happened there?

 

but I was thinking that, I noticed lots of people where trailering cars to and from the show

 

but the Autoshite crowed proudly drives their exhibits to and from the show suffering leaky windows and broken alternators (in the case of triggers marina) :)

Time to put the kettle on, make a cuppa tea, then watch the nation's world's favourite 3-wheeler methinks.

Just finished watching the video it was Awesome :) bonus very green piano/photo montage too FTW (and a long haired bearded man making dodgy hand pumping motions, trying and failing to get a liquid splattered all over a windscreen Ooh err...)

 

44/45Mpg sounds almost vaguely economical too, more excuses I can use against people who look at me funny when I say I want to get an invacar  :mrgreen:

 

 

(you should get a head mounted cam of some sort like what RCR uses it would be cool to see a first person TWC view :) )

indeed I saw that when it was uploaded :)

 

Pretty sure at this point iv broken youtubes algorithms with the wildly different videos I watch and the fact that it tries so hard to recommend invacar videos to me but iv seen pretty much every invacar related video on youtube :mrgreen: , so it has a hart attack as it has nothing new to recommend to me :) (computers+lightbulbs+music+invacar=one very confused youtube recommendation list)

TWC reminds me of an old cartoon in Punch magazine (remember that?). A bloke is trying to sell an open Austin 7 to somebody who appears less than keen, and is saying "What's it like on hills? Down 'em in a jiffy!"

I was nice meeting you Mr DW, and finally putting a person to the name. Invacar was definitely the best car in the posh hall. The posh hall is a very serious hall.
