Austin 1300

Tidy looking and eminently usable – the Austin 1300.


Joanna Lumley adds much needed glamour to the Series one Maxi…

Jaguar XJ6

  1. I see that the GT6 is left hand drive. I’m sure that sort of filth was reserved for our foreign cousins…..?

  2. Their outfits look feminine and stylish in contrast to the designer “painter and decorators clobber” worn by the young ladies of today

  3. Interesting to see that POF626G (Joanna Lumley picture) seems to be the only pre-production Maxi still on the DVLA website.
