Holland, Kingdom of Shite.

In this case, it's Noordwijk aan Zee.

There isn't a thing in this card I wouldn't would.

Note especially the rare Rallye (sic) B Kadett up by the zebra crossing.

BMW '02s appear to be popular.

 

What's the white coupe with twin round rear lights, just behind the lamp post? I don't think Opel GT or Mazda R100, possibly Fiat or SImca?


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

it is possible, did it twice. Try to sell there, then it gets funny, some samples:

 

- i have no internet, please phone me on +234xxx. No

- i would like to buy your car, can i make a suggestion for the price. Yes (never heard anything again)

- can i pay by cheque. No

- do you accept cheques. No

- would it be ok to send you a cheque for the payment. No

- Could you wait for my cheque until next week. No

- i will pay you by mandat postale tommorrow. No

- can you deliver the car to Marseille, i will pay you instantly by cheque when you arrive. No.

- I am abroad, me and my wife decided to buy, do you accept a mandat postale.  No

I tried to buy a big stash of postcards from the local auctions on Friday. Probably the equivalent of 6-7 shoeboxes' full, and every time dug out a few I found ones with good car content and the quantity of ones with bright blue skies suggested there would have been many more from the right era. Guide price of £25-30, I stuck in a commission bid of £40, but they ended up going for £110!

 

Pity, they'd have kept me busy over winter but I probably already have enough 'in stock' to occupy me for a while yet.

 

I've forgotten what cards I've posted on here, apologies if this is a repeat.

If I upload a sent card on Flickr I usually try and add the message to my description, gives a bit of context. That’s on the basis that I can make out the handwriting and/or it’s in English. I have quite a few cards which appear to have been sent from various Eastern Bloc countries to a German person/family living in England and they’re beyond me….
