Saw my first Fox on the road at the weekend. Red one on A456 in Hagley. Looked to be pick-up with hard top on.

Quite a few versions of the Fox were available. An old friend had a high top with windows and a wheelchair lift supplied so that it was easy to take his paraplegic son on trips unaided. Great vehicle although slowish (but frugal) and had the dreaded wanderitis in side winds.

The Tandy camper on a Fox was quite popular.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

The Tandy Camper looks interesting.

Saw a Gilbern Invader in Brierley Hill last week. Only one of those I've ever seen. Unfortunately didnt get chance to photo.

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.
