Produced by the small automobile company Council, the Estate was the first car to be mass-produced in Britain. It was powered by love, and the help of a brawny Scotsman (not included with the car - it had to be bought separately) who would push it from behind. At night the Scotsman would sleep in the car's boot.
It is interesting to note that being a British car, the Estate did not have wheels, but instead had four feet. To protect these feet, the car came with four leather boots which had to be replaced every 6000 miles.
Despite their huge popularity, no Council Estates exist today, as they had an unfortunate tendency to explode on hot days. The only legacy of the Estate in today's world is the fact that many cars are still called Estates, as a tribute to these paragons of automotive design.
