Metrocab in Teignmouth

Today's visit to the supermarket brought this little gem - a Metrocab no less.
Metrocabs have had a chequered life:
Started by Metro Cammell Weymann in 1989 they were taken over by Reliant.
1991 saw them in the hands of coachbuilding company Hoopers. In 2000 the company went into administration until bought by Kamkorp Europe but in 2006 production ceased altogether.
This one, N699GLX, would be a Reliant and is no longer a taxi but is a private car.
My thanks to the owner for a very interesting chat.
