If I remember correctly it's a Nissan Micra.

Did a quick Google for the rally, found this pic on another forum.

I really like old Cortinas, and that is about the best custom one I've seen.

Yeah I saw the Jag badge myself but didn't think it was a Jag so done a Google search this morning and came up with this.

Mitsuoka Viewt

Perhaps the best-known of Mitsuoka's pastiche models, the oddly-named Viewt was a latterday interpretation of the 1960s Mark 2 Jaguar, as driven by Inspector Morse. Despite the size and market-sector of the original car, Mitsuoka still opted to base its copy on the supermini-sized Nissan Micra, giving the resulting car proportions every bit as odd as its name..


They certainly have came a long way since manufacturing the Viewt take a look here http://www.mitsuoka.com.my/ and you'll see their newest range of cars

A jubbly wee 2CV the other week... Ignore the tiny people on the roof - Edinburgh in August, those bloody tourists get everywhere :roll:

This is just Genetically wrong. Should there not be some kind of protest group against this. If it was an animal it would have been put down at birth.
Thank you. And why not.

I spotted through the fence of a scrap yard as I was trying to find a chrome platers.
The first is a GMC sierra pick up from the 80's but the second is a real head scratcher. Any ideas?

Looks loke a milk float but the one time enclosed rear body would make that difficult.

I couldnt tell you exactly what it is but the wheels look early Morris. Looked as if there were hinges on the a pillar so would have been an enclosed cab which again makes me think it wasnt a milk float.

Indeed, but I remembered it had a sort of snout :mrgreen: I don't think it's a Morris J either now, the wheels are too far back ? :?
There must be a van guy (or girl ?) on here.
