Re: Production figures

Agreed,excellent article by Andy,looking forward to the part 2 alluded to. Particularly interesting note regarding the facelift estates. Wondered what the world total produced might be; presume the uk figures don't include ckd kits or vehicles produced in SA/OZ etc. now there's a challenge....!
