..more Tartan this time from Toyota...

Image

..the tartan in question...the Melville
Actually it’s a Toyota iQ with tartan livery.
But, on the road, it turns heads and shocks like a Highlander lifting his kilt to reveal he’s got no undies on!
Perhaps, Toyota’s battling qualities can be traced to their Scottish roots.
Scott Brownlee, the firm’s Press and Public Affairs UK Manager, hails from Coatbridge in Lanarkshire.
And that’s how this striking iQ was born. Brownlee’s middle name is Melville and the iQ was given this Melville tartan livery in honour of his background.

Now this would probably be a 5-spanner whatsthisthen? but the clues from that interior are there, but its big, and its American, and probably well out of the "comfort zone" of the FCF, and semi-off topic although the tenuous link remains....tartan camper vans for hire.....tartan cars.....tartan paint.....tartan interiors, and you could probably stretch out on that bench seat with a duvet and be quite comfortable for a night's camping :)

I like that ! it is very well done.
It would also have the added bonus of sending "surfer dudes and Hipsters" into a fit !

Nicely done, but I'd take a T25 instead any day...actually something like weatherproof and having brakes and steering that actually respond to driver input rather than the current moon phase. That pretty much summed up my driving experience in every one of the old splittie or bay window VW campers...

Those American coach conversions a couple of pages back are lovely, would love to see inside, might have to go interrogate Google...

Not very practical for camping but another example of Andy Saunders work.

Well, low bridges would not be a problem. In fact, most car parks would be accessible just by driving under the barrier!
