I remember reading about Nelson Mandela's W126 in Mercedes Enthusiast a couple of years ago.

 

There's a video about it here.

I must be 'on' or something, as I did get a bit 'totes emosh' as they sang and danced their way from station to station.  It seems utterly inconceivable and unimaginable that something similar would happen in this country.  But who knows, maybe one day Nissan will make Jeremy Corbyn a special Qashqai or something....

Its all in Russian but check out a channel by the name of 'Lexx'. Some absolute top dollar shiting going on there with shonky Moskvichs, Gazs, IZHs and even a roguew FSO 1500. He speaks fluent English as I discovered when I complemented his videos.

Some hot XM action in this slightly odd film-within-a-film for the launch. The gallic barge is compared with lots of other mid-80s executive chod, and is apparently better than all of them. Beautiful irony of a huge red "STOP" sign in the final sequence.

I enjoyed this. Nice mix of shite. Goes on a bit.
I was watching it on mute and was shocked when the guy vanished a 9:55. So I un-muted and discovered that, "Fortunately, Ken was only bruised".
I might watch it with sound all the way through. At the weekend. It does go on a bit.
 
EDIT: Don't be put off by the Escort shown here - they don't feature heavily.

I've recently been dipping in and out of the excellent archive of programmes from BBC4 on Iplayer...

 

I present the interesting character that was Ian Nairn. He did a number of series for the BBC and the three episodes of 'Nairn across Britain' from 1972 are on Iplayer. And Youtube. Lots of Autoshite and Architecturshite and a fascinating man to boot. First episode is introduced by the excellent Jonathan Meades from round about 1990...
