When we were teens there were no such things as classics, just ten a penny bangers, and we used to buy them for nowt, run them for a month or so then scrap it and get something else. Over a couple of years we had Jaguar 3.5 saloon, Rover 14, ( that had an early type of overdrive called "Freewheel ),Armstrong Siddeley saloon, 1936 Riley shooting brake( never got that on the road), Ford V8 Pilot, (that went like stink)

1937 Ford 8 (kept that for a while), Morris 8 van and a Ford Pop. Just think, if we had had a barn to store them all we would be sitting on a fortune now!

That 3.5 sounds very nice!

You could see half a street on a Saturday afternoon of blokes tinkering with cars..i remember ferrying tea out to me Dad...in between Colin Slater and Fluff Freeman.

My submission:

Facing camera, centre: Wolseley 12. Parked on the right: Wolseley 10. Parked further up behind that: Ford Y. Behind that; Fordson 7V. Behind that an orson cart and trolleybus.

Centre of road Vauxhall 14, (1936-48).

Going the other way behind the lorry: Morris followed by Austin 8.

Wonder if Roger stripped that Jag?619a9a668dcb5682900f13d10b836e10-brian-c

 

Series 2 XJ I think, looking at the boot plinth.

These almost dismantled themselves as they  left the factory !!

Clough always had Mercedes though from B & K Thomas just over the road. You can just see the star on his bonnet. I remember being in their showroom and seeing Christopher Dean collecting a new Merc.

3 Notts jag pics.

The middle picture, unless it was an Arfur Daley badly done crash repair, typified what killed the British car industry, poor build quality. How a car like that could pass final inspection is beyond me, you don't need any sophisticated equipment to see that it is not right, just a pair of eyes.

Just look at the woeful panel fit, the gaps between panels should be even, not wider  at the top than the bottom or vice versa.

The rear door has been hung to get the style crease across the door to look right but near the quarter light it is miles too high and has an excessive gap between the two doors.
