Only Citroens leak. Always.


So do government departments.
F*ck your Honda Civic, I've a horse outside,
F*ck your Subaru, I have a horse outside.
And f*ck your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside,
If you're lookin' for a ride, I've got a horse outside

Recent postcard purchases with good levels of content:

 

41495159064_a4f0bd6d73_b.jpg

High Street, Marlborough old postcard, late 1970s by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Ford dominate the scene, plus one or two others that Junkman will love/loathe.

28331966548_7fd4531e9f_b.jpg

High Street, Moffat old postcard, early 1980s by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Quite a bit of foreign car content here in Scotland, but just the one Volvo.

 

This scene was vaguely familiar to me, turns out I'd scanned an older Moffat card several years ago:

Is the escort estate in the first of the laslt batch warring an "automatic "badge below number plate? It caught my eye as that, but may he wrong.

It's a mark 2 so would have been GL rather than XL, although I can't remember if you could get such high spec estates.
I'll check later, the only Ford Cars catalogue I've got to hand is a 1982, need to go out to the shed.
Whatever it was ( died in 1986) it was enthusiast owned, black back panel, twin reversing lights, dog guard, mud flaps, who knows what delights we'd find at the front. A pair of Lucas Suare 8s ? Maybe some wiper aero foil things?

It was a GL automatic according to Cartell.ie.
The Mark 2 Escort estate range seems to have remained unchanged for the whole period of production - 1100 base, 1300 base, 1300 L, 1300 GL.
The base saloon was replaced by Popular very early in Mark 2 production, but there was no Popular estate.

My 1980 run-out brochure confirms the 1300GL remained available until the very end, too....That edition confirms the black rear panel, too.

Thanks for those. We often used to stop in Marlborough when I was little, and I always thought of it as the place you parked in the middle of the road. I liked it because I could get a good look at the cars :)

Towns with cars parked in the middle of the road are usually a good bet on an old postcard (when they haven't taken the photo on market day or something silly). Cirencester is another good example......

Although I'd prefer to see cars of the '70s, I love the crisp look of the older card. Great selection of everyday '60s stuff there.

I have had this card before and couldn't fully identify it then, either.....However, it looked a bit more upmarket than the Austin 16/18 body styles I have seen....Possibly an Armstrong-Siddeley although the bumpers don't tally completely.

Quite a few shopkeepers seemed to have big old motors back in the 60s....I remember our local music and electrical shop picking stuff up in a MkVI Bentley - all over the back seat, and with the bootlid dropped like that black car.

Someone on Flickr suggested Austin Sheerline, but the roofline doesn't seem to be as flat or the rear screen as upright on them.

 

Kind of pleased that no one else is entirely sure either.

Similar, but the rear window and rear styling are different.  Same goes for some models of Buick, though the car on the postcard appears to be RHD making a yank less likely.

∆25hp Vauxhall has the top folding bootlid also the overriders look to be in the right place.I can't see the bonnet well enough to see if it's fluted.
