Collecting this car was easy. There are not that many bright yellow cars in car parks around the country. This big Skoda is painted in what they call snakeskin yellow; it is probably not one of the company’s best-selling colours but it certainly makes you stand out from the crowd and when you’re stopped it tends to draw a crowd as I found out when I made one of my many stops for petrol. When I came back, a collection of car enthusiasts were standing around it, discussing the finer point of its colour scheme and what engine was under the bonnet. Not something you expect to happen when you are driving Skoda’s big executive cruiser.
