Greedy Old Car

J Reg. (1 August 1970 – 31 July 1971) Hillman Hunter pictured in Achterneed, Scotland.

Here is a bit more about the car from Old Bagpuss: "If ever a car was a bit warped then this was it. It had the uncanny knack of detecting when you had a bit of money and promptly refused to start until you spent the lot on IT. I don't miss it a bit........note cheap black & white film due to extreme poverty caused by GREEDY OLD CAR." 

I guess somebody wasn't happy with the Hunter! :@

Under The Hammer

It is believed that this Paykan was a gift to Nicolae CeauČ™escu from the Shah of Iran. It went under the hammer at an auction house in Romania (Artmark) yesterday. Don't have any information on the final sale price as of yet. The car has done only 2,000 Kilometer, for more photos please check out my other post here.

Note: I've noticed from my previous post that the wood-dash must have been replaced in the above photos due to lighter color wood material.

Update: The car was sold for € 37.000 !
