Dad had both of these when i was a kid.Loved them and its probably where ive got the retro bug from. Ive promised myself i`ll have a prinny body onto a modern floorpan with modern running gear.Probably something like a vag diesel platform with the prinny body plonked ontop with some killer wheels.
Look at all the plastic people who live without a care.Try to sit with me around my table,but never bring a chair.
These were always my dads selected weapon for towing our caravan when i was a kid! At least until they all vanished. Was too young to remember them but they're a stunning looker even by todays standards IMO.
My dad had an Ambassador. It was so awful he swore off BL cars for ever and got an Audi 80 instead!
I'm on the lookout for a Princess at the moment, ideally a brown one. I missed one a couple of months ago due to moving, looked really tidy too
I may have a serious problem... *mumble* Cars/26 years: 1998 SLK 230K 2002 Twingo, Fiat Fullback 180 LX Auto Extras/visitors: Rover 60 and a string of Parkers test cars... Drive a Yellow car? Yellow Car Drivers UK FB Page
I will have to get in the loft and see if i can find some of my old car pics, did some mad stuff when i was younger including roofchopped MK1 Granada and a roof chopped allegro estate. I think thats the only one of the princess though but i will have a look.
The 2.2 i sold last year was certainly wafty ;D they deffo have a certain charm so i can see why people love em but past experiance put me off TBH The good part i spose is the origional build quality was so hit and miss only the well built ones are about now ;D which is why they are so rare i spose. BL's trouble was allways they could produce a well built car but hid it amongst 999 other badly thown together ones
My dad had a Princess too. Maybe this is the one true constant that ties all Retro Rides users together...?
My dad had one too! Sandglow yellow, with a brown vinyl roof and brown velour interior
Always smelt a bit of sick though; hydrolastic suspension & children prone to travel sickness are not a good combination
I know nothing of the mechanicals, but if that's the case, that would explain why i always got travel sick as a child! I remember when we got rid out our last Amby we were test driving a Sierra, i told my dad we could but it because it had grey interior and as a kid i blamed the Amby's beige interior for me feeling sick in the car all the time!
