Half way between Essex and here yesterday and going north, both on single carriers: a glistening black mid-fifties Ford Thunderbird, and later a slightly tatty - for resto - dark-coloured 1999 Reliant Robin reg'd in Leeds.

No pics but in Italy, amongst the plethora of working Fiat Pandas at the airport, in police stations and even a NATO green one in military markings, I saw a Fiat Argenta today :D

I looked at one (the prototype I think) when I bought a mini based kit car. The styling was great but it used several donor cars. I had a crashed mini with good mechanicals, so the Domino was the more logical choice at the time.

Also never heard of it, but there are some interesting You Tube videos about the car and its designer/builder.

A very tidy Triumph 1300 (FWD) and 30 seconds later a not-quite-so-tidy Toledo going through Leek this afternoon!
