Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
the point is Steve..... Fiat, Skoda, Renault etc are all still there, despite their many sins - whereas our car factories bit the dust - mainly because their governments helped them face down the beast from the east.
As with the British motorbikes many of the cars have become design classics...the Singer Gazelle, Triumph TR7, the Reliant Scimitar, the Moggy Minor. Bet theres not many Skoda Estelle colectors out there. Not even amongst the Euro remain enthusiasts!
We were told government finacial aid was unfair competition to our gallant EEC comrades. EEc regulations...sorry old cock, nothing to be done!
