Want One Of These?

To be honest, I would think Londoners would be glad to finally see the back of the bloody things! However plenty have made the trip across the Atlantic and to places such as Hong Kong, and these should end up either going the same way or to enthusiasts here. At 10mpg they even compare well to some of the sillier SUVs like the Hummer!
Lead me not into temptation, I can find my own way there...

I'm an Anglophile, therefore I'd love one!

I think it would be a little unpractical to drive around, but hey it's a bus! I will sorely miss seeing those old giants driving around London though...

Oh well!
