The Safari
The family always wanted a safari wagon. This was taken about 1979. The green car sat there until only about 4 or 5 years ago. It had sunk into the ground and was full of weeds growing through it. A man knocked on the door wanting to know if it was for sale and Dad said he could have it if he took all the bits and pieces (windscreens, doors etc) that were lying around too. I'm just glad we didn't have to try and move it now.
