Why Do Only Fools and Horses Work?

Britain has many famous TV cars. Ford Capris, Jaguar MkIIs, Volvo P1800s, and, er… the Reliant Regal Supervan. Yes, they really called it that, meaning it held the most ironic name in vehicular history until it was finally surpassed by the Mitsubishi Carisma in the late ’90s.

Flickr’s de-marco has captured the classic three-wheeled delivery van to perfection, and only the addition of ‘Trotters Independent Traders’ to the sides could make it any more cushty.

Supervan! Apparently…

Lego Reliant Supervan

After yesterday’s silliness normal service has been resumed, with perhaps the most ironically named vehicle ever produced, the Reliant ‘Supervan’. Brave marketing from Reliant there… Lego Guy is  the builder and you can see more of his three-wheeled courier on Flickr via the link above.
