  1. I though this was Barry Foster, but looks a bit young even for the original run of Van Der Valk.
  2. Sounds interesting. I found the story of the Paykan intriguing, from the Shah's government wanting a people's car, Peugeot having to pull a lot of political strings to get production restarted after the Iranian revolution, to it's eventual demise, where the Iranian government had to more or less bride the makers to stop production, even though demand was still high.
  3. A few larger British cars had the manual gear lever on the right hand side, the Morris Isis & some 1940s Rolls Royces come to mind. I'm not sure what the did with the LHD versions.
  4. I think this was turned into a film, I remember seeing something where a GI boasts about been a hitman before the war & shoots a taxi driver through the back of his seat to show be wasn't bragging.
  5. Supposedly a high proportion of Japanese estate cars are used as delivery vans, so this seems logical.
  6. You can get a Mazda 2 hybrid which is more or less a Toyota Yaris rebadged.
  7. Right, I wasn't sure if it was one of those odd badge engineered car that seemed to be common in some parts of the world.
  8. Most my cars have been colourful, that helps to find them in a car park.
