Interesting that Jan talks of a 1200 and the photo is of a 13/60. Just goes to show you can't beleive anything you see in the papers

I don't think the photos are of that particular car, just stock images. I agree that it's annoying when lazy hacks can't be bothered to get this basic Herald detail right, not the frst time I've seen such a blunder.

If you look under the lower photo it says:Alamy stock photo.

Here`s a quote from their website..Alamy is the world's most diverse stock photo collection with over 90 million images etc etc.
