Jungle Safari


During a recent visit to a Suffolk-based Alfa Romeo specialist - who prefers to remain anonymous - C&SC staff writer Hurst was thrilled to find a gaggle of classics almost completely taken over by nature.
The specialist bought his premises a couple of years ago from the family of a childhood friend, who recalled being a passenger in the two Citroen DSs buried in the brambles - both rare seven-seater Safari estates - during his frequent visits to the farm in the early '80s.
He also remembered he and his mate driving the Dyane around the farm until it broke and was abandoned where it lies today.
There is also a BMC 250 JU truck (for which the specialist holds the buff logbook) that was last on the road in 1977, when it was used to cart materials to re-roof the farmhouse.
The Alfa man explained that it was fortunate Hurst's visit was early in the spring: "It's a seasonal treat really, because you can only see them in winter when the growth dies back - come summer they'll all be hidden."



Wow that's cool. I think he should restore that Safari although I doubt if there are still original parts of it available today. But I also think that gathering new materials and other suv accessories for it will be a piece of cake since there are lots options of it today. The only down side is that they are not classics.


Wildlife safari in India is the best travel experience for vacations. This is the best idea for this vacations. In India there are number of wildlife sanctuaries and national parks are there to visit. Which will make your wildlife safari most memorable.
