You're probably right.

I was going to say, "It's not a real VW; only the original Bug is the Real Thing," but I think I won't.
That was a fine machine, with its double rear windows, the reserve fuel tank lever, and those charming "flipper" turn signals!

Ideas of that type had filled my mind whilst I still had the Escort. Unfortunately, in later life it seemed to need new panels painted every year, so doing a total paint job would have been more than it was worth at twelve years of age, and anyhow, I don't know of a single place here that could do that sort of artwork. A straight, lasting paint replacement on a wing or roof seemed to be asking the impossible. I must have dropped about €2000 on paint in the last two years of having that car... with the official Ford garage, too.

That's why I sold it and got the new Fiesta.

It had only done about 60,000 miles (the Escort) as far as I can remember, nothing at all for an 1800cc engine that was well-serviced.

I really envy those places where there is this ethos of car-art, and the means of doing it properly.

Well, if you can't have your brand new Fiesta painted in Mallorca then you can acquire the car with the splendid paint job. It was in an auction sale on Champs Elysées. I didn't bother to ask the starting price.

Last ones. I was fairly selective this year as I still have car show images from the last 5(?) years I've yet to look at.

1934 Ford Tudor
1950 Studebaker Champion
(didn't catch the year of the last one)
