Though really, it wasn't brown. It was bronze.

That I thought suited the car very well. ...Not that I really cared what it looked like outside, given how comfortable it was inside!
Well its not a Monaco, its a Baccara in black cherry and up for sale on e-bay at the moment with a pretty comprehensive description

Nice Thames van on the One Show tonight

In 1958 Ford put together this little film as a promotion for the Thames. Slightly annoying tune but really sold the benefits to me and if you could produce them today for under £10,000 I would be first in the queue :!:



And here's one on CarandClassic for £9,500

That 25 is lovely. Have to admit though that I prefer the look of the Mk I cars, and thought the leather padding in the Monaco looked better than the wood.

...if I had the space and money though, I'd have that in a heartbeat!

I've had two R25's both manual V6 with the 2.5 turbo engine, very nice cars indeed.

I thought Cabana was a spicy sausage? Barry Manilow sang about the all-beef version "Kosher, kosher cabana"...

That said, it looks like a plus-sized Mehari!

I admit to a secret fetish for the Toyota barges, a minty first series LS400 or low miles Toyota Century (in Yakuza black with full tint, of course) would be suitably quirky these days.
