Re: How things have changed

Old engine oil diluted with paraffin and sprayed under cars is a great rust protector.

Re: Road Tax

As suggested above, if the car has a current MOT and is taxed, the best way is to ask the owner not to notify change of owner or notification of export until you have left the UK. I used to fetch and carry Morris Minors for the local restoration company, Charles Ware, and used an 'A' frame, but most...

Re: Classic cars on the road

Aston Martin Lagonda 4 door Most of you will know that this is Aston's version of the Jensen 'F' type! Or Concord as it most likely would have been called.

Re: Old photo of Interceptor Mk3 WLX 225M

My Glass's Guide Registration books list this number, issued in Greater London, as a re-registration series. In other words and if correct, this is a replacement for a cherished number which the car had when new.

Re: Cars names

Back in early 1959 I was working at Connaught's Garage, near Guildford. We had an odd selection of agencies: Citroen, Riley, Renault, USA Ford and some of the 'Bubble' cars including Goggomobil.
