A blast from the past A P50 car made in Peel. The photo was taken in 1967 in Canada by its owner Gary Meed. Also in the photo is Donna Mead, and a 1964 Ford Galaxy still owned by Mr Meed. The P50 was sadly destroyed in a fire some years ago. Look out for many surviving P50s and Tridents at this year's Vintage Car Rally in Peel.
