It’s what traincrew in the midlands call them. Not 100% sure why. Possibly, because in terms of power they are the mid-point between an original type 4 loco like a 40, and a type 5?

Countachs were used as pace cars for the Monaco Grand Prix for several years in the early '80s, so I would guess that's a support race for the F1.

All very cool! cool

This was FIL's company car. Sold for £2300 in 1977. Wish we had it now!

Another one, featuring a ‘duff’ this time:
Couple of early H10 Toyota HiAces there - one between the CF and the VW facing away, the other facing the camera next to the other VW.

An MG version of the ADO16 coming towards us and a Herald convertible heading away?
