Last Hurrah for the Rear-Engined Škodas
The Estelle was the last of the rear-engined Škodas before the VW takeover - and very succesful they where too, enjoying large sales in their Czech homeland and abroad. They were very popular - especially in the 1980s - here in the UK. This British-registered example (they are increasingly rare nowadays) was spotted on this years SALT Rally.
The SALT Rally 2012 (SALT SIX) was held around Market Harborough. The SALT Rallies are for vehicles built in the Cold War period, and the events tour Cold-War related venues. Most of the participating vehicles come from the Soviet Bloc, but there is no political element, implied or actual in the SALT ethos.
