Mother’s Day 2017: what women want
Don’t forget your good old mother this Sunday – it will be Mother’s Day. You can bring her flowers or chocolates, but why not take her out for a ride? It’s Spring, the sun may well be shining and we’re sure you’ll find a fitting destination. What car to choose? Well did you know several manufacturers tried to make women-specific cars back in the golden age of motoring?

Others were the Chrysler La Comtesse, Chevrolet Impala Martinique, and Cadillac Eldorado Seville Baroness. And how about the one seen above: the Buick Flamingo with swivelling seats, upholstered in a remarkable Paisley fabric. The car is believed not to survive, so this may be your way to get your mother interested in barn finds?

Back to back: Brit convertible or French decouvrable?
