Following on from the thread with the 80s Campagnolo Buick thought this might be a good idea for a thread.

I'll start with the late 70s Molteni Volvo 244.

And a couple more

The Shaversport van from American flyers. What ever did happen to the young ladies from the film. And Costner's 'tache.

Back in the real world the UK Holdsworth team from 1970. No idea what the car is...

I bought the "British Cycling Federation" mini-van back in 1977, it was green with BCF logo's.

I took the logo's off and hand painted it brown.........well it seemed like a good idea at the time :) Must see if I have a pic somewhere.
