Of course normally this blog deals with two and occasionally three wheelers but this Skoda Octavia spotted recently in Beaulieu village is too sweet and unusual to miss out.
Skoda / Volkswagen have trundled out the Octavia model name multiple times such was the success of the original which was produced from 1959 to 71 in huge quantities. This particular example is a two door which ran from '59 to '64. It's a very rare sight in the UK, particularly in this condition.
Whoever owns this lovely piece of Eastern Bloc history bravo to you to keeping it out on the roads and thanks for the pleasure of seeing it out and about.
