I suppose there are genres of interiors, just like music.

German music can be anything from Ludwig Van Beethoven to Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream

I missed that for some reason!! Very smart looker until you look carefully at the pics. Iffy headlamp tint and a few colour mismatches here and there, nice car for £10k but at that price someone got taken for a ride methinks!!

My Mk1, pictured here, was a little less in your face, I found a YouTube video of an identical car, except the lights at the front, which shows my interior: :-D

Passed me by that one Mick and still does. Had I been fluent in Serbian I would have known that Zastava means Flag or Banner., and the firm used to make firearms, but still don't know what the "not to be messed with" clue relates to.

That will be my twisted brain not making sense to normal people then. :-D I was trying to give the hint that I had messed with the picture before posting it so that all may not be as it seemed! :sulk: #-o :-D

I see, you made it right-hand drive. Good job it was at ACA I wouldn't have found it if it hadn't been.

I have managed to find one of these which is nothing short of gorgeous.

The car was first registered in England on 15th May 1970, and its colour was Bahama yellow.
