Possibly one of the worst photoshops ever. Anyway, there's no such thing as beige. Sandglow is the correct term..
Mmm. Sandglow, nice. :drool: My Sandglow mini 850 was brown according to its V5, while other Sandglow cars that I know of are down as yellow. Sandglow is stunning when it's fresh and shiny but it doesn't half look sh1te when it's flat. Best beiges ever must be the astonishing variety that Ford had on their colour charts back in the '70s, then BL Harvest Gold, Sandglow and the really beige one that came along with the then-new miniMetro in 1980, which is beige in its purest and most unspoiled form:

Almost as sexy as Rover Almond, as seen on many mid-'70s P6s, now that was a classier beige altogether. :D

Hmm, not really much point to a taxi that has been ruined by taking away its one major plus; the massive interior space! I would imagine it'll be ideal for the customer who says "to the airport, and hurry!" but I'm still after a Metrocab and it has to be a Reliant one, yellow paintwork might work though. :mrgreen:

I like the Mustang as it is in pictures 11 and 12, but - and call me dull if you will - the whole big knobbly old horn & wings thing doesn't quite work for me, though GHT may find it goes well with the retro suit and the shoes. Not as well as the fairground ride though, it's red & white. Get it bought, GHT, you know you'd cut quite the dash in that device.
:D

Too horny for me thank you, personally, I prefer a cracking pair of hooters.

I was thinking more along the lines of a euphemistic definition:

Hmm, nice horns, but a sixties Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman has these boats pwned:

Interesting Lanchester too, but I feel that describing it as a ten foot car is a tad generous. Ten yards maybe, that would be more like the limit of its concours potential! :lol:

Rich, when I said a euphemistic definition, I meant a ladies, er, assets. Some time ago I saw a photo of a young woman who was Jessica Rabbit mad. This woman had one very serious boob job as well as having her waist reduced. I tried to post a picture but it came back: File too big. I thought, "I'm not surprised." I have learned how to reduce the file. You've got to see this,
