The Indian is red...
Bill Phillips: Extremely so Ray
Cool! Is it a Pontiac?

I'd not heard that song... I guess he didn't need Bernie for that one?!
Bill Phillips: It is on the album A single man and was written in memory of a 17 year old called Guy Burchet who was a messenger boy. He died in a motorcycle accident

No it is a Guy Elizabeth. They were coach builders based in Wolverhampton

I thought for a moment that your local post-box had had a make-over, Bill
Once again, Bill, I love the color combination.

I have heard Elton John in concert many times and don't remember ever hearing that one. I guess it's not one of his most popular songs but it sure has his signature "feel" to it.

Superbe tête d'indien.
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Martine.
Eek a red injun. The initial photograph on the video looked a bit like the young Martin McGuiness. I had forgotten this clever piece of music.

your frame goes well with this image, Bill. i like the hint of a smile on the chief.
Bill Phillips: Yes he does look mildly amused Ayush smile

I never knew that the Red Indian (am I allowed to say that these days?) was the logo of Guy's. The Guy Arab was Southampton's main bus fleet for years. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Motors#/media/File:1954GuyArab.jpg
Bill Phillips: Proper buses
I think this was painted by a brush instead of a spray gun.
Bill Phillips: For certain Mary

Love Elton - he has a great presence on stage. A very instrumental song.
I don't think the Guy's ever run on our roads - but then we have a big country where one could have been.
Bill Phillips: Have only seen him once on stage. He did a concert at Worcestershire Cricket ground in 2006 I think it was. Ange and I went and enjoyed every minute.
Good one Bill, I do like hood ornaments.
Bill Phillips: So do I Frank. I have a dog one that once adorned my parents car back in the late 1930s
I remember Guy vehicles, indeed when my Dad first started lorry driving on BR he drove a Guy lorry for a while.
Bill Phillips: In the days when driving a lorry required a fair bit of muscle Brian

Bill Phillips: It has been lovingly painted Peter.
