Wonderful..something in my OLD grey matter says the Roverish grey estate was 4 wheel drive of the Ferguson type . The headlight surrounds look like Aussie Morris Major items mounted upside down !P.S. The words" If Only" are well known in B L circles.

Not been to Gaydon in years. So that Carina E was a bit of a surprise!Must persuade Mrs L that it would be a nice day out perhaps!

There's a lovely old Ferguson 4x4 R5 wagon in the Coventry Transport museum - predates the range rover by some 8 years. The styling and concept is well ahead of its time.

I think the Viva belongs to the Vauxhall Heritage Centre. Must be on loan.Regarding Jap cars, don't they also have the first Bluebird from Sunderland too?Good to see the Monty's back inside now as well. Any cars still in the compounds outside??
