Ian Fleming's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

1 comment
Ian Fleming's Famous Magical Motorcar!

Inspired by Ian Fleming's book and John Burningham's original illustrations, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, is the Magical Motorcar, a restored Twelve-Cylinder Eight-Liter Supercharged Paragon Panther, in English Racing Green. Rescued from the junk-heap by the explorer and inventor Commander Caractacus Pott, and his family, she became much more than a conglomeration of steel and wire and rubber and plastic and oil and gasoline and water.

Commander Pott, after restoring Chitty Chitty Bang Bang declares that "certain changes, revolutionary and extraordinary adaptations take place all by themselves during the night". When the family sets out on the roads in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a holiday trip to the beach becomes an adventure of a lifetime.
