Which Micro car was sold at Harrods department store
« on: January 24, 2016, 07:45:10 PM »
I've just bought myself a new Micro car, taking a quick look through a mound of paperwork I came across what appears to be the original sales receipt. By all appearances it looks as though the car was sold by Harrods Department store.
As a little bit of fun, can anyone guess what Micro cars were sold by Harrods?

I will reveal the new purchase after a few guesses  8)
I need to stop buying!

Perhaps even rarer than you think as its rumoured that Harrods only sold one.  I wonder why  :)
I know a man the definitely knows.

Good 'evans!  Was it "deer"? And did it ever pass a Humber?

Fairthorpe? York Noble? Both those companies had people with good connections.

Not a White Fiat Uno, that covered quite a high mileage and belonged to a member of the paparazzi and who was later found shot twice in the head in an extraordinarily impossible, or efficient, suicide that saw the car then catch fire as well. Ooo no!
