Boom Boom!

Here's another car that you wouldn't expect to see on the streets of Budapest. Well okay, it's not on the streets of Budapest but in the entrance to a big supermarket but it's definitely not in it's natural habitat.

Basil Brush is a great character that was a feature in my early years. He was on British telly in the 70's and 80's, had a long break and then had a comeback in 2002 He's still going now with his classic "Boom Boom!" catchphrase. He may have a rounder, softer face, but that happens to a lot of stars. Hey, he's even got his own blog and vlog!

He's always been a bit of a dashing fellow about town and country so the Austin Powers' shagmobile could be said to match his character. If any male could be "foxy" then that would have to be Basil Brush.

I'm not sure how much it costs for your kids to ride with Basil, but when you wander in through the automatic doors of the Tesco at Váci út, you'll see an icon of British TV.

Oh, and if you don't fancy Basil Brush, there's also the more literary Mr Men giving chase just behind. But that's a different story all together.
