Grey Craze

1968 Singer Vogue Estate. Photos by: Chappells10

UPDATE: It turns out this Singer Vogue Estate is the newest surviving example of its kind, it is a 68 model (G Reg. 1 August 1968 – 31 July 1969). And according to the owner all other Singer Vogue Estates, newer than this car, recorded as scrapped! Thanks again to Chappells10 for clarifying the facts for me.

Paykan Lowrider#42

Don't be fooled by the Hunter badge on the door, this is a Paykan! ;)

Sandy Lands

Lovely photo!... although I can't be 100% sure, but I have reasons (no Bumper-stops, thinner Body-side moldings, and fixed front quarter windows) to believe that this is a Singer Gazelle and not a Singer Vogue.
Unfortunately spottiewattie17's mum couldn't remember what version she had.

Tour of Azarbaijan

A "Cyclist Wannabe" here has tried desperately to change the subject away from Paykans!... today he sent me this photo, but apparently he didn't pay attention to the background! ;)

The photo is from The 2011 International Tour of Azarbaijan. Good Luck goes to the two Iranian riders Amir Zargari, & Mehdi Sohrabi!...


This could be either a Hillman Hunter MKI or a Hillman Minx. Photo was taken back in 1973 at Southend-On-Sea, Essex by: saxonessex

In the world of Arrow series it can't get anymore bizarre than this! Instead of using the Rootes 1725cc engine Chrysler installed the 1600 from the Peugeot 404 in order to comply with local content requirements in South Africa (other reports suggests they used the 2.0L engine from the Peugeot 504 on post 74 models).

According to the advert they had three model range: Hunter, Vogue & Safari. The above 1972 Hillman Vogue example was recently sold in Cape Town.

I am revisiting GKD 762L. A beautiful example of the most powerful among the Arrow series Hillman Hunter GLS.
