Well its in its new parking spot with some good companyIMG_19700101_081344.jpg

The door shuts are what I assume to be champagne beige. Not its original colour, it started life in red then some hero painted it beige then someone ( possibly a child ) painted in this fine hue.IMG_19700101_070436.jpg

Excellent.

 

By the way, I ruin the table game, because I reckon Plas is pronounced Plass, as in CLASS. This is because it has Dutch origins, not French.

Plarse is the best way I can think of to show how it is pronounced. With the arse bit as you would expect.

It’s not it’s Plas, forget who told me now, or if I saw it on TV but some “experts” were discussing and reconed it was pronounced “Plas”. Might’ve been the antiquies road show, actually.

Tbh I’ve always pronounced it “Plah”

But it's standard Allegro chat. A bit like me pronouncing Equipe "wrong" at the NEC Classic Car show last year to my father-in-law. Out of nowhere a chap sprung up, tapped on my shoulder, told me I said it wrong and how to say it. Then buggered off.

Only on the Allegro stand could that happen...

I have never put that much thought into the pronunciation of it. Always called them Plass. Although I think I shall make a badge for the back that says Vanden Plarse

It doesn't matter how Vanden Plas is pronounced correctly. What matters is that it has plah instead of map pockets.

Sign of the times. Many 1970s cars put the blades at the bottom of the screen in front of the driver. See Hillman Hunter, BMC 1300 and Allegro - and Mini until the change in wiper design with the Clubman. They swapped them over for LHD.

 

Australia was having none of this nonsense, which is why Volkswagen Type 2s had 'RHD' arms, and the down-under Triumph 2000 had Stag wipers.

 

Yet, the Citroen Dyane had RHD whichever side the driver sat, though the GS/GSA had LHD wipers whichever side the driver sat. Most odd.

 

This has baffled me since I was about two. I've had a lot of time to think about it.
