Again, thanks to Shahin of the PaykanHunter website (and regular of Autoshite), who put in some serious hours scanning a selection of amazing transparencies, we now have some stunning images from a selection of press days at the UK’s premier motor show. This was probably a golden era in one respect – the marque and model selection was far wider than it is now, even though the motor industry was in an appalling mess at the time – globally.
Seriously enjoy these images, all of which won’t have been seen before (unless you’re a regular of the above-named forum) – unless you’ve recently clicked on our Maxi-based Aquila story, which is now headed by one of Shahin’s wonderful images. Interestingly, it was this image that revealed a choice of wheels for this car previously unseen in contemporary images..
Enjoy the images!
