Came here to mention Jaywick's 'Brooklands estate', but I've been beaten to it.


So did I - my Grandad lived nearby, he and my mum both had Hillmans but no photos.

There's a pic somewhere of my mate with his MK1 Mexico in Mexico Lane, Cornwall.

You could always take a trip in a suitable German car and blend in with the locals in the town called Rust .
Apparently it has a theme park there if that floats your boat !

Whole estate in Tamworth named after cars or car related, Allard, Belsize, Crowley, Dennis, Jaguar, jenson, Jowett, Healey, leyland, Lotus, Riley, swift, sunbeam, Triumph, wolseley and maybe some others I have forgot. Sadly no Reliant which is stupid.


Hillman, Lagonda & Trojan are the others. I did my paper round on that estate.
There is a Tom Williams way on the site of the Two Gate factory.

On a 1980s estate near where I used to live there is a Cosworth Drive.    As that name was a portmanteau of two surnames it can only have come from the engineering company name but there is nothing else like it on the development.   Or indeed any Cosworths.

When they demolished the old Devon General bus garage in Torquay and built an ASDA on part of it, the road up to the new, smaller depot was called Regent Close, (DG had a large fleet of AEC Regents)

Does anybody near Aberdeen have a Vauxhall Belmont?

 

We could get a photo of it on Belmont Street.

 

 

 

Regarding busmansholiday's post above, there's a Regent Walk in Aberdeen too.

 

Ooh, Mercury Marquis on Marquis road. However, it's in a bit of town where the car would be burnt out before you could take the photo.

 

How about a Bedford on Bedford road?

 

Toyota Crown on Crown Street?

 

Honda Accord on Bon-Accord Street? Too much of a stretch?

On the site of the old DELCO factory in Dunstable. If it shuts for more than a day it's turned into houses in this dungheap of a town.

Came here to mention Jaywick's 'Brooklands estate', but I've been beaten to it.

Also, your car would probably be burnt out mid-photograph.

Beat me too. Although I have the honour of being the shiter living closest to that area...

There's no Skoda Avenue though.
Out of my mind, back in 5 minutes
