I knew a farmer who had one of these, I couldn’t believe what he put in it – chickens, hay bales, fence posts. No way to treat such a lovely car. Or maybe that’s just the townie in me, maybe the country folk do do that? I should take a drive in the country some time and see what I can see. I hear it pays to keep your windows up to keep out the country smells. Worse than that, I hear you get cow pats stuck in your tyres – that would make a fine mess of the carpet in the garage. That always put me off leaving the city limits but I shouldn’t be so narrow. To be fair, we do have a TV that has sunsets and waves lapping on the beach, tweeting birds, fish tanks, you know the sort of thing. I’m sure I can select a rural scene and it would be much cleaner than the real thing …. wouldn’t smell. I don’t really need to see what they put in their cars anyway, there’s bound to be a story in the Sunday supplement some time, I’ll keep an eye out.

HT Premier customised

This is a recent commission from a customer in Australia. He sent me the photo of this lovely HT Prem, owned by his cousin then passed on to him. They both remember the car fondly and now have a print each to hang above the mantlepiece. This was a case of adapting an HT I had already created, adding the ‘Jellybean’ mags and matching the colours to a colour chart from 1969, which I found online.
