This poor old girl is resting in a yard near Brooklands. It broke my heart to see her like this....all my adult life I've wanted a PA Cresta of my own to love and cherish. I'd prefer pink and white, I'd prefer white wall tyres, I'd prefer a three window back model and I'd prefer a bench front seat in white leather or leopardskin. But what the heck, I'd be happy with this old girl really - roadworthy of course! I'd drive her from my garage at the weekend and poodle around in her watching the admiring glances of passers by and the 'what the f*ck's that?' from the youngsters who've no idea about style in a car. I'd wear my kitten heels and no-one could tell me (yes, that means you, David) that I should wear more sensible shoes because you don't have to be sensible in a fabulous OTT Cresta!
Well, I can dream can't I?
There are some wonderful people fighting to keep these cars alive. See my Cresta gallery!
