The pearl white "Indecision" morphed in later life into this "brushed stainless steel effect" car.

Image
Built in 1984 this car was constructed entirely in steel, hand rolled by Saunders, the biggest project Saunders had under-taken up to this point. The car blew people’s minds when it was launched and received media attention from all over the world, including much television work.

Andy used this car as his everyday vehicle for 2 years and then it was sold to a car collector in Kingston upon Thames where it stayed hidden from view and eventually drowned in a river flood in the late 90s. In 2004 it was one of the cars chosen to appear in the Goodwood Festival of Speed Concours, Saunders got it back took on a major refurbishment of Indecision, the car changed its colour from pearl white to brushed stainless steel effect and silver metalflake.

Now in a private collection in London, where it enjoys the company of a few George Barris cars.
.....who on earth is George Barris???

Someone turned a BX into a Batmobile (sort of). It visited CXM one year not so long ago...

I'm really happy to see that car is still on the road and looking better than it did when I last saw it... Good on whoever built it and owns it :D

He did look a bit scary but turned out to be a very pleasant and friendly bloke and seemed to be very knowledgeable.
With any luck he will be there again this year - he certainly kept a lot of people entertained for quite a while.
