Just think back to 1959, how could you have loaded rubble and all sorts into the back of that beauty. They are just the most perfect pickup ever built, just beautiful.

Used as a taxi around Le Mans, must have been 8 people in the bed and three in the cab,

Ford Focus Orange would be outrageous - but obsolutely perfect IMHO - would accentuate all those radical curves and angles - can just imagine that sitting out in the sun !

Saw a modern car, think it was a Mazda in nice bright metalic green the other day. That would look good on an Elky, thogh I do have a soft spot for orange too.
