Nigeria Phantom

Above is a photo I took in 1981. Such a regal form of transportation.
It belonged to the Nigerian Embassy in London.
Sometimes there are protests...
I'm not sure if they still have it, but in the late seventies/early eighties there was always their nice Phantom VI parked outside:
FGN1 - cool plate 'Federal Government of Nigeria 1'
Years ago, it was okay to have extravagant embassy cars. Maybe it's hidden in the garage now. You can't get rid of one of these - you just hide it somewhere and spend all day looking at it and polishing it, don't you?
And drive the A8L or Phaeton W12 instead maybe? Gotta keep a low profile these days.
The other Phantom photo credited to 'Raffles'.
