    In Kefalonia today. Loads of shit still about, but this passes as a quality repair....


    Still, they went to the effort of painting it....

    ^^^ Top detective work!
    Interesting that the pedal car in the '78 Argos catalogue is registered 'WAM123S', while Bunglebus' example was 'WAM123V' - Sharna must have updated the decals each year to reflect the latest registration suffix, which is a pretty nifty touch that my junior inner pedant would have appreciated.
    £16.95 in 1978 works out as just shy of £96 in today's money, so a pricey enough toy.

    I had a Range-Rover styled pedal car fitted with AA decals and an amber flashing light... can't find any pics online, so I must look out some pics of it, too. Not sure who made it.

    Nunns in Grimsby started off by selling FSO.
    My Grandad bought one new from the in 1982.
    The garage was on Rendel Street (opposite Hartford Motors/Hartwells) but they moved onto Mitsubishi a few years later.

    Break out the buckets and spades
    We're going caravanning for a few days 
    a third world shit tip of crisps and lemonades
    Seaview Campsite, run by  Hades.

    Mam's sister made us play out in this seaside carbuncle
    as she'd be dead busy with another new uncle
    do us a favour, walk to Grimbsy town
    get us some more wool, here's half a crown

    An' when we'd gone she'd pull out the stops
    Five quid for oral, two for fingers and tops
    'ang up your coat and get in the queue
    keys in the fruit bowl, you're number two
     
    Kitsch furnishings and wipe clean placcy
    as Bob came to visit on his 500 Bukaki
    and fornicated and frolicked on garish formica
    before making his way for the next greasy biker

    she'd close all the nets coz she knew for certain
    he'd wipe 'is knob on Cath Kidson curtain
    then 'ang up 'er knickers in the front window to dry
    the white stains would come off if she bothered to try

     an' in the kitchen of this sticky backed prison
    more than one pork sword had been arisen
    a bread bin for the nodders, a tub for the jizzm
    you can't say our Carol did nowt for tourism
     

    an' on guard old Buster was made to stay
    paid like her in sausage all day
    overweight and idle  and fond of a bone
    but that's enough of me aunty, I wanna go home.

    Black door mirrors mean no sunroof, no ABS, wind up windows, Clarion radio cassette.
    It'll have the dark interior trim with blue and green highlights (rather than the earlier light grey velour that always looked grubby).
    Lovely thing.
