As well as trolleybusses there were a lot of classic cars on display. Here are a few examples.
Wolseley Hornet, a variation on the ever popular Mini. This was considered slightly
upmarket as it had extended fin shaped rear wings which allowed a slightly extended
rear boot, plus several other refinements to it's finish.
(Another variant was the Riley Elf which also had the extended boot.)
|The rear parcel shelf mascot wasn't an optional extra tho'|
|Time for tea.|
|Ford Popular 103 E. The first car I ever drove, quite basic with a 3-speed gearbox.|
|Trolleybusses where giving rides around the site.|
Austen Cambridge. Another car my father owned and one I really enjoyed driving.
Although it did have a bit of transmission whine! A common fault on front engine,
rear wheel drive cars, that had given a lot of service.
|This "Cambridge" had a model mounted on a plinth just above the air intake grill.|
|It also had a couple of important passengers. |
My main reason for taking this was to show the Bush radio in the rear window. We had one
of these when first married.
|I've no idea why the candelabra.|
|A Jowett Javelin.|
Jowett Cars Ltd started making cars in 1906 until 1954 and had a
factory in Bradford, Yorkshire.
The Jowett Javelin was made from 1947 until 1953.
|This was in the exhibiters car park, maybe not a classic yet but will be in the future.|
|A Panther 2 seater sports car.|
|Very well appointed interior.|
