“Ullo John gotta new motor”

Coining a phrase from Alexei Sayle from 1982, ‘Ullo John gotta new motor”, the new jigsaw in the Ravensburger range is called ‘Car Lot’. 

When purchased the jigsaw is fully sealed and shows on the front the main details. So this puzzle is 1000 pieces and it is number 18 in their Best of British range.

Once opened, inside you find a picture of the jigsaw so you are not constantly looking at the box lid, and all pieces are securely enclosed in a sealed clear bag.

Buying a car is always a stressful event.  Imagine if you were buying from this dealer ‘Honest Harry’.  Do you think he is as honest as he claims?  Im unsure looking as some of the dodgy items on the jigsaw picture. 

Even his customers look slightly dodgy.  
The artist of this puzzle is Geoof Tristram.  He has been an extremely successful professional artist and cartoonist for over 35 years.  Geoff’s work can be found on fine art prints, collector’s plates, in magazines, on postage stamps,  on greeting cards and of course on jigsaw puzzles.   
Geoff accepts private commissions especially enjoying portaits. 

In addition to this painting and illustration work, Geoff is a talented author have written eleven comedy novels and most recently, a history of the legendary “J,B’s”, a live music venue in Dudley which has been visited by many of the great bands of the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Geoff lives in the West Midlands with his wife and family.
