Re: EBay Finds

They may go out of vogue but by then they will still be fucked up by the bearded, twat-haired cat-flap brigade. Which just means they will start ruining other vehicles, unless we all do what I do and studiously ignore the pillocks and make instead for a good honest burger-and-tea trailer or decent h...

Re: EBay Finds

Sadly, the ad copy mentions "camper" and "potential" which doesn't bode well. As it stands, though, absolutely fantastic old thing and I do hope it stays looking like that.

Re: Wobland Spottage

They are one of the best kept secrets of 50's motoring in my admittedly biased view. Get some new shocks, bushes and decent tyres under one and they are brilliant drives. No wonder most Morris Oxford owners hated their new Farinas....

Re: Squire's voitures

All the '58 B-body line was pretty generic as GM upsized the tri-Chevy and companion Buick into the one full-size platform, just basically nose-and-tailing the cars to differentiate the marque name. 1959/60 cars were similarly anodyne but somehow evolved better individual identities. I like the '58s...
