Classic Car Beauties22nd August 2018
The main shopping centre where I live has all sorts of displays throughout the year, as yours probably does:
- Jobs week
- Drugs awareness week
- Road safety week
- etc etc week
I never expected this when I went in there to buy something though
I’m a classic car fan, so this was a great surprise.
Just look at this Velorex. Made in the former Czechoslovakia between 1950 and 1971. I’ve never even seen one before.
What about this Lada VAZ-2101. Produced in the former Soviet Union between 1970 and 1988.
Here’s a Trabant P601 Kombi. Produced in East Germany from 1957 to 1990.
Then there was this little darling: the iconic and much loved Fiat 500. Produced in Italy from 1957 to 1975.
And last, but definitely not least…
The Triumph Spitfire 1500
British Racing Green and right-hand drive (I almost felt at home!).
Produced at the Canley plant, Coventry, England from 1974 to 1980.
Would you be able to use one of these as your main car?
I know that I couldn’t. Not a single airbag between them. No air conditioning. Not even power steering.
I look at these classic car beauties and I think of Katie Price… nice to ogle sometimes but an absolute nightmare to live with 🤪
What do you say?
Whenever I spot an interesting machine I get out my mobile and take some photos of it (if possible).
Then I feature it here in ‘Spotted’
And I am always keen to hear about your interesting vehicle.
