This Fiat 500 has 1380 BMC A series/transaxle power and was blindingly quick. It's fascinating cars like this that make Hill Climbing so interesting.

 

 

Just like a Dacia

If you think after-market lights are better you are wrong

I can't imagine demand for the SM was particularly high in NE Scotland at that time. LHD only would have put a fair few people off.

 

URS 983K has an interesting MoT history - the most recent fail was in August last, and it also had a fail in 2015, 2012 and 2011.

Spotted at a local military vehicle show in Pembrokeshire last weekend, a selection of what was on display...

 

Rover 100, Morris Oxford and Standard Flying 12 with rather tenuous military connections:

Series 3 109s. 'Fitted For Radio' (FFR) with 24V electrics. These two were both into service in 1984 and were some of the last petrol S3s made for the army.

Defender 110 DPV replica although built from 'genuine' parts. These generally had V8 power but this one is unusual in being fitted with a 200Tdi engine.

Russian Ural combination. Rebuilt from a pile of rusty scrap, apparently.

Jeep and 24V FFR Lightweight. The Jeeps seem tiny when compared with the smallest 88" Land Rover.

I couldn't really work out where to ask a question like this, so I thought here would be as good a thread as any....

 

It's not a spot by me, but is a 'flickr' spot whilst trawling through albums of anonymous photos...

 

Does anyone know what the white van is on the left. I've established the white vehicle on the left is a Toyota Land Cruiser (J50), but I've drawn a blank with the other...
