Power Hunter

From the transfer of power from James Callaghan to Margaret Thatcher in the United Kingdom general election of 1979, which is regarded as a pivotal point in 20th century British politics!

No more talk that Hunter had no Power! Ok?... ;)

Since this blog is about ALL that you always wanted to know about the Arrow Series, with utter disinclination I have to make this post. These self-proclaimed "rudest, crudest, lewdest, drunkest band in Christendom" punks (Macc Lads) have taken the Hunter abuse to a whole new level! Do not look this up, I am serious DO NOT CLICK HERE!

Alien Hunter

A Hillman Hunter Royal (might be a Royal 660 can't be sure from this far away) shot next to the famous Carnarvon Tracking Station in western Australia.

Update: It is a Royal 660 indeed & the picture was taken next to the OTC Satellite Comms Station.

The Sixth Wheel

I thought Iran Naional packaged the spare wheel underneath the Paykan Pickup behind the rear axle. So this is the 2nd spare then, can't be sure though.
