    Correct arf9999...and it was actually an Allegro Vandenplas

    An interesting one, that green one, owned by a chap on Flickr. It was initially owned by someone in the RAF who loved it and cared for it, and was one of those people who covered it in badges and bling to excessd. Then it was sold to someone who simply let it rot in the street, until it was discovered by the present owner who is in the process of resurrecting it.
