Trolleybus Museum, Sandtoft in North Lincolnshire. Set 3

This is a mixture of images and subjects from the Trolleybus Museum.

My only reason for taking this is because we had one of
these radios when we got married.

Woodhall Spa 1940's Weekend, 2016.

A mixed set of people seen at the 40's weekend.

A "selfie" of me with son Michael, the photo was taken by me. 

The Garnet Sisters, of "Britain's Got Talent" TV series fame, performing 40's songs at the Woodhall Spa 19400s weekend.
Very good entertainment.

Trolleybus Museum, Sandtoft in North Lincolnshire. Set 2

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.
