The Green Machine aka “PYP”

Yes, the color is Dark British Racing Green with an ‘R’ number plate meaning the car – Fiat 127 – was made in 1976 (four years younger than me it was) thus, the wheel trim / hub caps are green, the go faster stripe is grey, the fog lamps were for a rally car, the sunroof just looked cool; there was a Mountney leather steering wheel inside, flash seat covers, a Blaupunkt detachable radio cassette (tax disc is now a thing of the past but visible on that little baby) and the wing mirrors were cool as fcuk. The windscreen wipers likewise and, well, that little black patch on the bonnet (vent for the engine) just looks pretty cool as well!
