A Cosworth Escort on Bells Line of Road, just west of Mt Tomah, the other day. Flared guards, extra lights, seemed to be set up for rallying. Looked quite the business!

Driving to work just now, I saw a Morris pick-up. I had no idea they even existed, it looked good. A bit like an old Chevy, only smaller.

When I was growing up, one of the men in the village had an early one of these (I think it was from about '57or so). Despite being about 30 years old, it was completely rust free, a bit of a miracle for a British car of the period. Then again, he was a farm mechanic and used to liberally coat every part which wasn't on show (and himself!) with the waste oil. Can't imagine that being allowed now, but it certainly worked - from outside it was immaculate.

My brother was a mechanic. The family cars all had a coating of used sump oil underneath. Stuff the 'regulations'.

Our Mini has a good coating of oil underneath too - courtesy of the numerous standard fitment oil leaks....!!

Two Moggie Minors on the A41 outside Chester. One was a split screen Traveller in that slate grey so beloved of 1950’s British cars.
