Auntie Rose's AC Invacar
My aunt proudly trying out her new AC Invacar, 1975...
These were a strict single-seater, supplied by the British government to the disabled........ affectionately (?) known as 'spaz chariots' by the youth of the day and rendered obsolete in the late '80s by the 'Motability' scheme, which gave government grants for converted automatic Metros and suchlike which were perceived to have less social stigma.
Not long into her motoring career, she was stopped by the police for
taking my Grandmother shopping squeezed in beside the single seat.
The coppers were surprised to find a nun and her mother, and let her
off (but made gran walk!!)
and yes... it's the same AC of Cobra fame!!
