My Old Scanned Pics's Dad's Humber Sceptre hooked up to the family Sprite Major caravan, unknown location, probably 1970.
People these days think they need a monstrous amounts of torque for towing, some even go as far as looking into machines like the E39 M5! Its getting ridiculous really, isn't it?! Let the above pictures be a lesson to them! ;)

Shailen from the beautiful island of Mauritius contacted me a while ago to tell me about his Hunters. The above wagon which originally belonged to grandpa, and a Hunter GLS!
Who would have thought there be Hunters over there! Unfortunately parts are scares over there, and Shailen had to use a different engine on his cars.
Thanks for the photos, and good luck with your Hunters!
Circumnavigate the globe on a Vespa?!!!... Sean from Chatham, Ontario has been living and working in Budapest for the better part of eight years when he decides to pack it up, and attempt to travel around the world on his most prized possession, a Vespa P200E.
I think he is somewhere in South America now, you can check out his travel blog at: Vespa360.com
Sean, I am sending all the respects I got for 2-wheelers to you mate! Good Luck with your Journey!....

This was PaulHad66's Singer Vogue Estate which did an incredible 450,000 miles before it died! Being a Singer it must have been a 69 model (H reg. is Aug 1st 1969 to July 31t 1970) since Rootes dropped the Singer name at 1970 and re-badged some the leftover stock as Sunbeams in that year for the UK market.
Also notice the more "modern" Vogue badge on the door, which was also an upgrade on the later Singer cars.

This is the rare Hillman GT, hurriedly put together by Rootes Group to capitalize on their unexpected 1968 London-Sydney Marathon win! Photos by: thermionic
I also had another post about this same exact car here.
Update: Notice that this car was simply called "Hillman GT", they didn't use Hunter.
