Saw this 1934 Austin on the A40 today and he certainly was not holding up the traffic

I've posted a photo of one of these cars before, but this is such a good photo I am reproducing it. Not my photo, this is from a new member of my local club who joined a month ago and today added some photos to the club Facebook page, all stunning.

Also, that sign always cracks me up - a command to stop the car, get out your Autoglym and give the war memorial a good old shine.

Is your venue the temple shaped building, or do you prefer the extra space of meeting in the Chevrolet Suburban? :lol:

What’s that on the driver’s head?

Is he an Arabian Sheik?

Sheik Yerbotie, perhaps?
