Generally I wouldn’t know one car from another so these have been snapped because something about them appeals to me. The first one because of the clean lines, being old-fashioned and the colour. One of the original panel vans.
Possibly reminding me of the old ice-cream van in New York although as you can see I probably wouldn’t remember it if it wasn’t for the photo.
This old car also reminded me of my youth. This one obviously greatly loved, celebrating Christmas is a far cry from the dull colours that I used to see in my youth.
This one taken in Oxford 1958. Look like I only had one dress.
This one taken in 1959 outside the church my father was minister at in Casino Australia. The Bentley was my favourite but he always parked around the corner. It had running boards and was so luxurious but sadly no photo.
Taken from a distance another panel van. Look beyond the blue trailer behind the tree is another old panel van. With timber sides. Sadly I could not get closer as we whizzed past.
You would think this would be the perfect fun car for our climate. Sadly not. In summer your head bakes and we avoid getting the sun on our skin. In winter it is simply too chilly. Roof down maybe three times per year.
We didn’t live in the torrid zone then and it was so much fun to load the car up for our camping trip to the far North of Queensland.
My first new car.
My Dad’s first new car.
This was not taken for the car but rather the dog that was in it.
My dogs loved going in the car also but they didn’t travel in this one.
