BARDO is the new name given to the Paykan pickup by Iran Khodro, and I'm really struggling to translate it to English, but it sort of means "Cargo Rusher"! The production line now has been moved to the western province of Tabriz, and according to official figures the factory could produce up to 30,000 units a year! It has a fuel injected Hillman Avenger engine with optional LPG.

So the goody good old "Hillman Hunter" could break the record for the longest produced car ever! It still got few more years to go, and from what I can see there are no plans to end the production anytime soon.

Ok... so I do know all about the car, but know nothing about the owner! Whomever you are, please contact me if you see this post, cheers mate!

Getaway Paykan

You know if he wasn't in a police uniform I would have said that is one genius idea for a Getaway Car! Precious seconds could be saved getting in without bothering about the door.

Happy Camper

That is one happy dog! ;)

Mr. Jones's Hunter

This is Rodford School at Yate. Brother Ernie attended here between 1971-72, and he remembers that the headmaster Mr Jones had a Hillman Hunter! Nicely proportioned building, just like the Hunter itself! ;)
