    One of my Facebook followers on 1stoverland just sent us this,
    It's an Iranian truck called a herour
    Just a concept with a 2.4 engine

    Thoughts? Other than the obvious?

    although off subject but simular,
    the chinese have been making airbuses at 1 a week,
    the aussies were building earlier ford cars,
    the spanish built a copy of a series,
    the list grows..

    so come the end of production of the fender,
    its taken to say iran, built out there,
    and re imported as a 1 off over here..
    lots of times..
    yes, the fake fender is simular, but could be just a starter model.

    Same as the original split screen camper. Can still get a spanking new one with any option you want fitted with interior to your own spec in the original shell imported from Mexico

    one dark bored winters night :rolleyes:

    we could do a thread with
    "where are they made now"


    then get anaraki and search out failed UK production lines,
    for them to be built elsewhere.

    not cars but also, romfords brewery closed 1993,
    the site cleaned out, the production line was sold complete to.....

    china...
    just like rovers & mg`s..

    Rover was screwed years ago, flash paint and alloy wheels on aged design were just a ploy to make it look like venture capital group weren't going to strip assets.

    Even BMW got shot of rover

    only the older stuff james,
    used to be a mobile grease monkey once upon a time,
    but that stopped in the mid 1980`s `ish.



    still maintain my/my daughters cars though (aches & pains allowing)

    for a last new one, deep pockets required, but such an Iconic vehicle to drive.

    over the years I`ve lost count of how many beetles/ Bajas/ cabrios/ pick up trucks/ bay window vans & campers my son has had at various times.

    been fun to drive and be out and about with them..

    There is some brilliant engineers in Argentina like Pur Sang 1927 Bugatti Type 35 Pur Sang Replica - Jay Leno&#39;s Garage - YouTube

    or if you don't like French and want British although not as dedicated copy I quite like Evanta The DB4 Zagato from Evanta Motor Company

    Can't afford any of them but if I could it would be hard to choose,
