Here at the opening ceremony of the Tohid Tunnel in Tehran, is a rare chance to see how the Tehran Taxis have evolved throughout the past decades.

...and if I'm not wrong that must be this Original Paykan Taxi.

Time for a Cuppa

Trainee traffic officers of Manchester and Salford Police share a joke during a break while on a police driving course.
Typically a police instructor would supervise three pupils, who took turns at the wheel during drives across the region. In this case they appear to have arrived at what seems to be the seaside in time to open their flasks of tea. Behind them is an Arrow Series Hillman Minx.

Paykan Lowrider#38

Moffat Run

Rootes Group used the Sunbeam badge for export market only, but in 1970 they decided to drop the Singer name from their product lineup, so they re-badged the left-over Singers as Sunbeams for the UK market. This is another example from that year, a Sunbeam Vogue estate. Which apparently participated in the Moffat Car Rally.

Mr. & Mrs. Eyerman

I am very excited to feautre these photos sent to me by the renowned Hillman Expert this side of Atlantic, Mr. Jan Eyerman himself!

I want Thank Jan for the photos and his lifelong passion for Hillmans! You can read his Hillman newsletters Melodies and to subscribe check out the affiliated site: What's a Hillman.

Jan has been kind enough to write a little about the car:
"I bought a new 1969 Sunbeam Arrow from Manhattan Dodge on Broadway and 53rd Street in New York City in February of 1970 (it was a left over) for $1,749. It had a manual transmission and did not have a radio (I installed one later). The color was Claret metallic (dark red) with a black interior. We owned the car for ten years and put 113,000 miles on it. Both of my children came home from the hospital where they were born in it! I have owned many, many new cars but I think that was my favorite. I liked everything about it and the price was unbeatable. We only sold it when the floor rusted out".
