Thanks to Les for sending in this pic which we had to crop on the right as we need to be mindful that some folks visit this blog at work, so we can't have pics of girls blatantly displaying their parts or playing with themselves. We don't see a problem with nudes as long as legs are reasonably close together :-) At some stage we'll put all the rejects on a dedicated page.

"A piece of iconic Canterbury history, owned originally by the British High Commission and sold to the Christchurch City Council in 1975.
"First produced in 1968, the DS420 Limousine model has been used extensively as an official state car all over the world. Based on the Jaguar 420G, with a lengthened wheel base and powered by Jaguar’s famous 4.2 litre engine, this particular car represents an early example built in Jaguar’s Vanden Plas works.
"Described by former Mayor Bob Parker as a “wonderful old thing”, he also said, “It has a nice history and it is part of the city.” Last used by former Mayor Vicki Buck, it is famous for breaking down on her on at least two occasions." Yes, a true British car :-)
