What's a "puck up?" I think there's a wrong letter there.

Hmm, she doesn't look human either, the poor wee soul. :|

Dream car you say? Maybe the dream where the bad guys are chasing me toward the edge of a cliff and the brakes on my Raleigh Chopper aren't working. :sick:

I concur and I suspect that the wrong letter is a consonant. "Art" says the creator of the thing, he then admits that he built his own house too. :shock:
But seriously, isn't it marvellous to stay in a country where such unbridled lunacy is not only permitted but also encouraged?

A puck up, or to be correct, a Puck-up, is a Shakespeare expression. It comes from Puck, in a Midsummer's Night Dream: Puck is a clever, mischievous elf, sprite or jester. Nowadays we refer to a puck up as a cock up.
(Believe that and you'll believe that B/L made good cars.)

Ooh! Loving the 164. That looks like an exceptionally preserved original specimen but I remember how my 144s all liked a drink, so I can only assume that their six cylinder cousin would have been incapable of significantly above 25 mpg downhill with the wind behind. :|

I feel really sorry for the Ambassador. :(

The seller says they can assist with loading so they must have a big dustpan and brush ;)
It does look sorry for itself sitting on 4 flats.

How about this beautiful Ford F350. Crew cab, leather and ice cold a/c. 7.3 liters of diesel goodness and the 300lbs grill guard in front of the radiator really helps with over steer.
