Flat radiator grille.

 

Google images suggests a pre-1953 Morgan +4.

Harrods McLaren is quite famous 3rd at LeMans 1995 and 6th in 1996 driven by Andy Wallace Derek and Justin Bell. Seem to recall it was Dodi Fayed's little project. Obviously this all came to an end in 1997 when he died in France.

Strictly speaking not exactly what I can see as I work at the far side of the office so can only see the roof and a selection of chimneys and vent pipes

The view from my window is very dreary.    If I walk down the corridor to the mail room I could have taken this shot about 35 years ago.   Unfortunately it is now a sewage farm (no TR7 jokes, please)

That photo is interesting in as much as I didn't know Lotus Europas and Jensen Healeys were exported to , presumably, the US. Also can't see any E-Types amongst the Midgets,Spitfires,TR6es, MGBs , Marinas ( Austins, presumably) and even a couple of 88" Landies.

Wonder if any of those cars in th ad are in the dockside picture.

Oh, and just to make you feel a little bit older it's probably nearer 45 than 35 years!

Not the best of photos and nothing interesting in the car park.

Like many workplaces it is a bit difficult to waltz around with a camera these days.....However, this is just about the same location, today.

Yeah, thanks!    Working it out properly, it is probably more like 47.   I am 99pc certain this was taken from our building when it was first erected as a (temporary) office block in 1972.  

I have only been incarcerated here for a mere 19 years....
