Old (1971) and New (1990) oldnew

This picture was taken at the 2003 International Rally of the DLOC in Beaulieu. It shows the 1987 car of club member Ivan Ford (left), and my own 1971 model (right): 16 years and one meter apart. Ivan's car once belonged to the Royal household (registration D500GUW) and still has the "Royal" blue lamp fitted. The actual height of the car did not change. The nose of the new car looks much lower, but actually it still has the same height.

Currently the Royal car is owned by Christian Vanik in Vienna.
