Oh S*** Handle!

Just in case you were wondering about that cable contraption, that is to make sure that seats don't bend backwards, in many cases there be not one but two passengers sitting on the front seat of a Paykan Taxi!Photo taken in Isfahan by: dutchcaps

Soldiering On...

This post is dedicated to Nic and his epic journey last night with his Land Rover. He soldiered on through a dark and stormy night cutting, sanding, and clamping and then re-clamping the injured LR to its final destination! Congratulations mate! but next time you should pick a more reliable and comfortable vehicle, like this Humber Sceptre MKIII ;)

Lemon Juice

Normally I can't stand yellow cars, but this Javanan looks cool as a cool lemmonade on hot summer day! I take one! ;) Thanks to my friend MOPAR for the photos!

Safari Stripes

A slightly blackened Hillman Hunter Safari in Australia, it also has the walnut dash, all wagons sold there has the plastic dash. Photo is from vklemans, it was taken at Canberra in 2007 at the Centenary of Hillman (1907-2007). Thanks Vic for the info!

Sky Blue

My dear friend Reza from Mashhad, whom I meet over at TT sent me a lot of photos of his much beloved Paykan, here is a sample. He has spent a lot of time restoring and documenting this car fully over at the forum.
Thanks Reza for the great photos, hope that The Wheels Keeps Turning For You; literal translation of: Charkhesh Baraat Becharkheh. ;)
