Named after the old Trojan van apparently. Used as a mobile Jamaican music delivery machine.

I never knew that! Hence the virtually identical company trademark. Trojan Condoms in USA too.

Plenty of Micro Breweries around these days too!

Not sure there is a link with the condoms other than Richard having them as part of his portfolio of products to market at one time and Alan Town providing some promo packaging for them on aeroplanes, I believe. He presented Dave Hambleton with a golden one for the Trust! Both owned Trojan cars therefore offering the loop of the link.
Trojan manhole covers have nothing to do with Croydon either. However the racing cars, Trojan and MaClaren as well as Elva do. TAke a look at the TRust website as it is amazing what Trojan got into.

What 'Trojan's, supporting the droopy anonymous Jamaican alcoholic hidden under the manhole of your life'? Not very catchy though it covers the topic to date I think.

Isnt this a microcar forum? Did they use condoms to seize production of the Messerschmitt? ;)

Not STIFFY BYNG? Look out Bertie!

Condoms, sleeping bags for slugs. Well they are homeless Snails. You should feel sorry for them.
