The most alarming thing about that is, there are police out and about in Wrexham

Default Amateur..

When I was about 12 my aunt had a Robin Reliant.

We went on a camping trip to Glendol with...

Audrey and mum in front, my dad, my brother (6) my cousin, (10) and myself in back and...
A scout patrol tent, sleeping bags...etc...

(Mum and Audrey went home) and we spent a fun filled weekend camping then return journey in the Robin Reliant.

Funnily enough the rear axle on the car went bang a week later!

Seemed ok back then but looks somewhat dangerous now!
