In good company

Post06 Dec 2017 15:27

Took our '58 Mk1 for our weekly shop at Morrisons and spotted this lovely Vauxhall with an empty spot beside her. I'm always very wary of parking near - especially - large 4x4s because it seems many of their drivers have absolutely no idea where their corners are, nor how much damage their heavy doors can inflict on classic cars. Wriggling in to the empty spot, I was then able to take these couple of snaps.

These Vauxhalls, like the big Fords of the era, always seemed much larger in my imagination. But as you can see, compared to modern machinery she fits her allotted space with ease. And what a difference in styling compared to the Austin - look, no fins!

Yes, always sad when numbers transferred but at least the car survived. Two classic cars surrounded by moderns must have created a bit of interest !
