    You should have seen the :"double adult" version, the camper tent shown may be a variant. (no pun intended though Frankie Howerd and Dennis Norden may have an opinion) Flat out at 40mph down a mineshaft!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We bought one of those, down at Telegraph Point in about 1972 for $10. My mate probably still has it

    Just came across another Panther. This one with future Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawke (and Hazel, who was his first wife) on it. Bob died yesterday, aged 89. This shot is from 1950
