I read with interest, and some amusement, the comments about including (or not) the Aston Martin Cygnet in your ‘All the road cars’ section (Your view, issue 16). Why not also include the Frazer Tickford of the early ’80s? At least the engineers made some changes to the engine specification of the Metro on which it was based [adding a Weber carburettor helped the A-series engine to produce a heady 80bhp] and it impressed the road testers on Autocar!
I happen to own one of the two remaining left-hand-drive cars (out of three made, I believe). The car (pictured above) was actually displayed at the Geneva Motor Show, I guess in 1981, and has currently covered all of 17,000km. Jonathan Hartop, Aston Riviera Cars
