One of my favourite automotive cast-offs has always been the Iranian Peykan. Built by Iran Khodro (formerly Iran National), this Hillman Hunter clone has been an Iranian mainstay since the late sixties, and it succinctly summed up what it was about second world nation cars … After all, the Hunter – nice as it was – was never going to set the world on fire, and yet – here we are – in 2005, and it is still for sale…” … excerpt from here.

Still, if I wanted to buy a car – I won’t – I rather buy an second hand Peykan than any of these new cars sold at least three times their worth over here.
