I so want to see Jay/Doug/RCR review an Invacar  :mrgreen: (and a trabant, and a Lada, and a Routemaster bus and a load of other british chod LOL)

 

(preferably with me on site so I can make sure they get all the facts right LOL)

Doug does Jay Leno's F1, but Jay doesn't let him drive it...

 

 

Just watched the video through

 

and id be lying if I said I was not making invacar comparisons throughout LOL

 

front hatch that is only for mechanical bits and not for storage? check :)

 

rear/mid engined? check :)

 

adjusted to the specific users needs? check :)

 

Center driving position for optimal weight distribution and driving position? check  :mrgreen: (and you can squeeze 2 people either side the driver in a Model 70 if you really wanted too LOL)

 

and in the case of the Mk12, there are substantially fewer known surviving Mk12s then there are F1s 

 

and Model 70 can probably go faster* then a F1 anyway

 

*in reverse

Some Finnish car ads from the 60´s and 70's. Brands covered include Volga, Skoda (rally action!), Audi (shady bloke feeling cold and uncomfortable), Moskvitsh, Peugeot, Wartburg, Neckar, P70 Zwickau (they drive over one of the plastic doors to highlight its flexibility) and Saab (with emphasis on windscreen wipers and lamp washers in dreary conditions).

Here’s another one . Old Jag, remove some interior bits, lights and alternator , torch it and then gas axe.

I also enjoyed the guy gas axing the rear of it had a tie on.

(also love how even back then they put the person in sun glasses to make him look like a douche...)

Those Finnish car ads are fab, although there's a touch of 'Chanel 9' about some of them and I'm pretty sure the Wartburg was a model.

 

And there should've been a warning about the Scan Auto sauna scene....

^ I deleted my post from half an hour ago as when I tried to do what I'd explained in the text it didn't work !.

(Basically, it was to show Mercrocker how to post direct access to vids).

 

 

The way which usually works for me, using only an Android tablet, is to copy & paste the entire youtube address, then strip the first bit down to just

 

https://youtu.be/

 

with the dot added in "youtu.be" then put the last bit of the copied address, which in Mercrocker's case was

Sorry, chief, I have enough trouble just right-clicking on my laptop.  I still have no idea what an Android is.  I will get there one day.   Never doing electric handbrakes, though.....
