1971 Fiat 124 saloon1993 Fiat Panda Selecta1998 Vauxhall Corsa 1.0 (3 cylinder)"There is nothing in this world that cannot be made by some man somewhere at a lower cost and of slightly poorer quality. , on Flickr This is the AA badge i fitted on my last car, It only cost me £3 at the Beaulieu Automart, I wish i kept it now.

Those who shop by price alone are this man's lawful prey"I"ve just sold 1 AA badge on e Bay , and 2 RAC one from the 60"s and one from the 70"s......madee over 10quid each And i"ve still got 2 more AA badge ( 1 square and 1 old style ) and 1 old style RAC to go on there yet..unless someone here wants to make me an offer on them pics below.... I did toy with the idea of buying another one for my Kadett but decided that it wouldn't suit it, It still has a AA Relay sticker in the rear window though. It's one of the original ones from the turn of the century, It might be worth a few quid.
