  1. Always worth staying up late Sunday night for this. Banger

  2. Woman with the Peugeot in front of the estate > woman with the VW in the field. By the way, fourth photo from the end…WTF are those things?

    • They are Lotus Europa.

      • I think he’s referring to the pods ;)

        • Yes, I was referring to the pod looking things that remind me of some bad 70’s movie.

          • They be TVs!

            • Probably a good story behind that photo… Where they set up there for some event? Did some swingin’ 70’s photographer decide that would make a groovy picture? Were they props left over from a period sci-fi movie or TV show?

              • Based on the car, the period, and the TV, I would suggest it was a promo from the TV manufacturer. I would even guess further the owner / designer of the Keracolor a Lotus fan. Particularly as this looks like their loading dock on a typical wet English summer day.

                The Europa was featured in a number of similar promotions at the time. Including a memorable race between one and a telephone call across Italy. I think the car won – being in the days of manual telephone exchanges…

  3. If I had the privilege of meeting the man who rallies his Aston DB, I would shake his hand and buy him a beer.
