    Here’s a photo of a minivan in use by two tall lads from Lothian & Peebles (near Edinburgh):-

    They must have been phased out by the time I joined the bobbies in 1973, but it always intrigued me how guys who were both very tall and very bulky could get in them – and get out again. I remember watching a man mountain of an officer getting out of a Morris 1000 one time and it was like a genie coming out of a lamp/bottle. It was particularly good to watch the reaction of the group of lads who were givign me and another (slightly built) officer a hard time till they saw this apparition emerge out of the Morris. No trouble after that!!
