Armored Jaguar to Protect Tony Blair
AAP - March 10, 2003
British Prime Minister Tony Blair is to get a specially designed Jaguar car that would protect him in case of a poison gas attack, a London newspaper reported.
The armored-plated car, costing $321,000, will be fitted with a compressed air system, allowing those inside to breathe in the event of a such an attack, The Sunday Times said.
The paper added that the government has ordered three of the vehicles from a car conversion specialist in central England. Each Jaguar has devices fitted to its wheels allowing the car to move at speed should the tires be shot at.
Britain, set to join the United States in any war against Iraq, has beefed up security in recent weeks following a major alert at London's Heathrow Airport.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
