For better or for worse... the car that lasts a lifetime...

We've seen it driving around the area between Braye and Richelieu on several occasions but today we were lucky enough to get a photo of this wonder on wheels; this mobile roll of Duct tape. 


In fact, to call it a 'car' would be an insult to duct tape. If the manufacturers of Duct tape are searching for a new advertising campaign, they need look no further!

And just to prove it's the same all the way round, here's a photo of the passenger side (apologies for the photo quality - it was taken in a state of disbelief from the passenger seat of our car.) 

I feel I ought to point out, here, that the vehicle was NOT overtaking us; we had parked up to seize a photo opportunity!

There's an old saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"  However, there comes a time when even old sayings just don't go quite far enough...... And that time has come!


Postscript:
 Maybe I've been a little dismissive here. After all, 3M, one of the largest manufacturers of Duct tape advertises the following on it's website http://solutions.3m.co.uk/wps/portal/3M/en_GB/3M-/vehicle-wrapping/
