Tommy Tannoy / Splinter had an MG one, with the go-faster red seat belts.
Bet that hurt.
Not this multi-purpose unit? Currently available on eBay.
I have today changed the headlight bulbs in a Hyundai i10.
Being slightly more modern than my Getz, I expected a bit more awkwardness, but, Bloody Hell!
The only tool necessary to change a Getz headlight bulb* is the key to open the door, so you can release the bonnet catch - after that, your hands are all you need.
The i10 required the headlights to be removed and the driver's side one would have still been there, if I wasn't so determined to beat the bastards. There is absolutely no reason why it should be so hard.
* It is necessary to pop the light units out in order to change the sidelight bulbs, but this can be done fairly easily - and you could, at a push, do it in situ, if you can remember what it looks like "around the corner".
I had a Fiat Stilo which needed the battery removing to be able to change the passenger side headlight. Doing that affected the ECU (for some reason) which required a Fiat technician to reset. Thankfully I never had to change the bulb when I had the car.
A nice old Merc, in original unrestored condition - a few rust spots emerging, but not bad for 41 years.
The little flash of yellow suggests that it might have been UK registered at one point.
That's where Mr Marwood has got to!
A nice Vanden Plas in Great Haywood this morning.
Austin 1100 with a walnut dash, Hyacinth would love it.
Was there another version with a small boot a la Riley Elf or did I dream it?
The Riley Elf was Mini based
I vaguely remembered one and found this image of a version made by BMC as the AD016.
Is that the same car - different colour - that was belted by John Cleese with a branch?
I know that, but wondered whether BL carried the idea through to the 1100.
With boot. Well found.
Was there really a boot extension, or are we just seeing the rear fins from the front quarter?
The 3 door estate version - Countryman.
Looking at that you're probably right.
Edit: responding to @Gramaisc.
Weren't the tail-lights the same ones as fitted to the contemporary London Taxi?
Although the second Riley above seems to have different (later?) ones.
