There’s an extremely silly bus shelter at Warrior Square, St Leonards — Lottie gamely volunteering for the ‘does my bum look big in this?’ treatment!

Facel Vega HK500

July 4, 2011

Following on from my previous posts about The Most Beautiful Cars of All Time  and The Most Beautiful Cars… Part 2, it was nice to come across a picture of a 1958 Facel Vega HK500 in Saturday’s Telegraph.  Here’s a link to the article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/columnists/mike-rutherford/8604077/Mr-Money-Buying-classic-cars-as-an-investment.html

Oddly, the picture in print on Saturday — a pretty daffodil-yellow car — was not the same as the one shown online (and above).

Strange that the car is expected to fetch only £20,000-£30,000 at auction.  Perhaps it’s a rust bucket?  I would have thought its rarity value is such that any example would have made more.  Perhaps it will!

Does sung English need subtitles??
