There are some rarities in the top card - what looks to be a RHD '46 Buick, A40 Somerset drophead (never a common sight on British roads) and the Phase 1 Vanguard behind the LD van appears, on closer inspection, to be a van converted with side windows rather than the factory station wagon.   I spy a Cowley too, behind the A40 Devon bottom right foreground.  Which means I need to find this postcard for my collection.....

What’s the rather rakish-looking saloon just below the “Maypole” canopy?


The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Looks like Terry-Thomas has dropped into the Red Cow for a quick snifter and a flirt with the fillies. Ding Dong.

It certainly Is.  I thought about visiting such a quaint, picturesque place

 

But the modern day look is shite, so that's off.  They even knocked down the toilet block

Yeah, but weren't they aware of the fact that countries other than the UK also made cars?

They seem to have finally woken up to it in the later of the two pics.

Besides, Ireland built surprisingly many cars, albeit mostly from imported CKD kits.

Down there in the happier south-east, there wasn't anything like the level of gut-hating you'd find up on the northern border

 

From nearby Rosslare you could pop your Heinkel on the daily Sealink ferry to Fishguard or Pembrooke without fear.  

Mind you it would be a bit of a trip to get from Welsh to English soil in that screaming Heinkel

I think I've shown you this one before.

 

Reit im Winkl, Germany

 

ReitImWinklR16.jpg

 

Junkpapa's R16 TX (sans rear spoiler, because TÃœV) is on it, which is quite an amazing coincidence,

since we hardly ever went to this tourist trap. In a further coincidence, I discoverd the card decades

later while being in the area on an assignment in a nearby cement factory.

I have collected mid-century car photos for years and always been amazed at the amount of European shite that puttered around the Emerald Isle whilst us Brits fought shy of mis-pronouncing anything with rubber mats, FWD, rear engines or Michelin tyres....
