  1. Fiat 500 lowrider in LA I asked for a traffic jam of steam locomotives on the M1, what I got instead was a parade of German kriegsloks. Oh well. "The Starry Night at KwikFit", as painted by Vincent van Gogh. 1988 Citroen SM
  2. Ne pas peindre! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/116134844098?itmmeta=01HTTCDGKSYHWBF63QZ3QZP8B2&hash=item1b0a2d16c2:g:01gAAOSwY3RmEUyq
  3. The Spyker is on display in the Louwman Museum, the big building in the background is the Paleis voor Volksvlijt, which burned down in 1929.

  7. Yes, 1941. During the war the petrol pumps were modified so they could be used to fill cars running on gas. 1950's: 1970's. shortly after the gas plant was demolished: The petrol station and a few other buildings (a library, fire station and sports hall) disappeared in the early 2000s, and apartment buildings of which the shape is meant to be a hommage to the old gas plant were built: https://www.google.com/maps/@52.2249378,5.1929571,3a,75y,324.77h,98.92t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1szqvI0UIej5AZxnoLfbEPdw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?entry=ttu
  8. Yeah, they did the same trick with the Colt/Clio. Mitsubishi's future here doesn't look bright atm. Their current lineup consists of models that were introduced eight centuries ago, and blatant rebadges...

  10. The initial demand for the Mk III Invader exceeded production capacity! Selling them wasn't the problem it seems, but attempting to increasing production output was (overworking essential staff members, increasing quality issues, which in turn made them waste a lot of time on correcting said defects), along with cashflow issues and the frequent changes of ownership. Shame really, another example of a manufacturer that offered a fairly okay product but went under regardless...
  11. One chapter in this 1970s book ("The Small Business Casebook", S. Birley) is about the (mis)management of Gilbern. The price and specs of the Invader are being compared to other cars, but this list doesn't seem to make much sense? Cars in a totally different price and performance league (AC, Aston, Dino), the Citroen DS and GS, floppytop Cortina... Also, according to sir Google the Crayford William is a microcar!

  16. A 1998 W124?
