well for the micro enthusiast they are obviously similar looking to the Berkeley and they strangeley don't seem to get a mention here

Biggleswade's finest and the clue is in the name. You need to be Biggles to drive one. The spirit of World War One in a car. Will it start, will it stay working? Will the random mix of building materials and bodges from its unusual construction and previous encounters over the front remain in one formation of rivets during operations? Your mission is to dogfight with Blofeld's cat on the open road, where ever you see it, Mr Bond. Trouble is the cat tends to win. Another car which is famed for its ability to fire wheels at unsuspecting passers by. Looks fantastic though, a miniature AC Cobra. The Enfield Adder being tops. Pity the Berk Slow-worm T60, not even a snake with its missing wheel.

Very pretty little car. AC Cobra? Yes, but a bit more like the AC Aceca perhaps
Just remember: as one door closes behind you, another slams in your face

Ah, the Berkeley Privet and the Mini Leylandii conversions.
