[Video] Yellow Car Convoy Descends On The Cotswold’s

Keep calm and carry on! Yellow car drivers gathered on mass in England over the weekend to rally in support of an “ugly” car that was vandalized for obstructing a picturesque view. A yellow car convey of 100 cars drove through the streets of Bibury, in the Cotswold’s as a measure of solidarity with 84-year-old Peter Maddox and his yellow Vauxhall Corsa. Tourists visiting the area often complain that Peter’s bright yellow car, which he regularly parks outside of his cottage, ruins the scenery by “photobombing” their pictures. In fact, a vandal scratched the word “MOVE” into the side of his car. That was enough! Fellow car enthusiast, Matty Bee, took action and summoned a fleet of yellow cars from across the country. The response was overwhelming… everything from Vans, high-end sports cars and classic roadsters showing up together for “a celebration of anything yellow”. Peter Maddox, who was prepared to buy a lime green car in an act of defiance if the scratches on his yellow car were too expensive to remove, said he was “overwhelmed” by the display of support.
