Scrappers Independent Traders
Yesterday, we got a right corker brought into the yard, this A Reg Reliant Rialto in Trotter yellow. After taking a look at it, and deciding whether or not to sell, break or scrap it, we’re still undecided. Although it isn’t the Reliant Regal Van the Trotters used, it’s very similar.
This style of car, especially in this colour is intrinsically linked with Del Boy and Rodney, and we feel it would be a shame to scrap it. So for now, this little yellow car is parked in the yard, brightly advertising The Scrappers. Even on this dull day.
What was it that Del Boy once said ‘Asking a Trotter if he knows anything about chandeliers is like asking Mr Kipling if he knows anything about cakes.’ We think that should be asking a Scrapper if he know anything about cars!
This Time Next Year… We’ll be Millionaires
And look at these three Plonkers, we couldn’t decide whether they were more like Del, Rodney and Uncle Albert, or Trigger, Boycie and Denzil!
Only Fools and Horses had a serious impact on British Culture, and was a staple of the BBC. We’re hoping that people will love us just as much as Del Boy and Rodney. And the car? Well the one used by the Trotters has attained cult status and is currently on display at the Cars of the Stars exhibition at the National Motor Museum, alongside many other vehicles from British and American television and movies, such as the Batmobile and the Delorean from Back to the Future.
