MANY of you will have been following the fortunes of Big Bird and the other participants in this year’s Bangers4BEN charity rally, organised, of course, by Car Dealer.
The epic trip is over now, with all the participants having returned to the UK in readiness for the final stage of the fund-raising efforts – the auction of the cars at BCA Blackbushe next Friday.
Big Bird, a Fiat Cinquecento covered in yellow feathers, was Car Dealer’s own entry and was collected from our offices today. The driver sent to pick the car up was clearly expecting something a little more conventional…!
Check out the video in James Baggott’s tweet below… and make sure you get hold of a copy of issue 93 of Car Dealer which will contain full coverage of the event.
The moment the trade plate driver turns up to collect our Fiat and realises he’s driving Big Bird to BCA. Classic. pic.twitter.com/bZ1gGp7ydw
