I've recently been watching the TV series All Creatures Great and Small, and was mightily impressed by the pre- and post-war cars featured. So I'd like to ask if anyone here has experience of living with and frequently using a car of this sort of vintage ?
Or if I were to pose the question another way - what sort is still affordable ..but also the most practical type to live with, repair etc. ?
Although I love the sound and joy of the little pre-war Morris convertible Jame's Herriot drove, I suspect the pre-war Rover (10 ?) Siegfried Farnon drove would be altogether more practical. Before this, right at the start of the series he appeared driving an early 1930's Hillman Minx.
Your thoughts, opinions, comparison road tests, performance figures, etc, members club enthuse, and any such similar nonsense much appreciated
Daydreaming perhaps but I'd love a car with wings, running boards, and free-standing headlamps,
