This ad appeared about six years ago and used a working ‘Peacar’ that was built on a VW Microbus Chassis. The car was originally in the Birds Eye office reception but not sure where it is now? Would love to see it.
Multipla’s have been used as advertising vehicles. In 1960 this great pink Multipla with attached pig was used to advertise ham.
Have you seen the new Audi ad? Based on the children’s fairy tale ‘the ugly duckling’ it features a wonderful Auto Union Protype car from the 20’s that supposedly grows up to become an Audi A5. Mario loves the original streamliner and doesn’t think it’s ugly at all!
Mario has had a lovely sunny Good Friday out at Wheels Day. This annual show held at Rushmoor Arena near Aldershot and organised by The Surrey Street Rodders is primarily a custom car show but always attracts a very varied and interesting collection of cars, although not all to our taste!
Obviously happy to be out and about on a lovely spring day, Mario performed well and even amongst this large collection of unique vehicles still attracted more than his fair share of attention. This show is very well attended with possibly over 1000 exhibiting vehicles. Here is a small selection of a few that caught our eye. A few more will be on Mario’s Facebook page, if you haven’t already ‘liked’ him please pop along and do so.
