Probably my all-time favourite 'fantasy car'. Simply sublime. Actually, seeing as it occupies the realm of cars I'll probably never even drive, let alone own, I'll may as well make mine the 'LM'.

That'll be the effects of the sweeping budget cuts, Nat, meaning they likely used a cheaper adhesive that was more easily removed. Prior to this, I doubt you'd have got them off that way ;)
