As part of the coverage of the London Marathon the BBC today showed some of the history behind the event which included footage of the first ever London Marathon in 1981 and included two clips of a Rancho.
In one of the clips I noticed that the number plate was replaced with one that had HERTZ 1 on it so I guess that the vehicle hire company were maybe co-sponsors or provided vehicles for that first event.

In case any of you Rancho fans missed it you can see one of the clips of the Rancho being featured in the start of that first London Marathon by clicking on the video within the following page on the BBC web site.

That's brilliant, the one in the clip had the clock bolted to the roof.
