From mobility scooter to Rolls Royce
However, there is a great-grandfather who loves one particular television programme so much that he has gone to great lengths to create himself a permanent souvenir of the series.
The 74-year-old Thunderbirds fan has converted his mobility scooter into a replica of Lady Penelope’s Rolls Royce. He travels round dressed as the famous chauffeur, Parker, and has even put a model of Lady Penelope herself in the back of the vehicle.
The retired construction worker decided to build the creation to drive in a cancer charity run after a long-running wish that he could drive Lady Penelope around.
He said, “I set about building her Rolls Royce in my garage out of bits of old wood I had lying around.
“People are very supportive when they see me driving around town and I've even been stopped to sign autographs. I love being able to raise a smile for people.”
If only we could be chauffeured in a Rolls Royce on daily basis!
