Onion Skimatique




Here is an example of a Paykan Automatiqe, very rare to see one these days. The note on the dash says: "Remember not to start while in Drive" :) The front grille is wrong, the Autos had a slightly different style grille with two horizontal stripes in the middle, and I believe the GT steering wheel is from a Paykan Javanan, nevertheless a fine example. Photos by taken last fall near Darabad, Tehran.
