  1. It would appear my initial thoughts were correct. Blimey, look at the angle of those rear wheels! Swing axles or WHAT?
  2. I think (think...) that's a Skoda Tudor van, but I'm not sure!
  3. I've owned a few* French cars, and I have to say my Citroën Xantia is one of the best cars I've ever owned! French car manufacturers "went their own way" in design terms after WW2. André Citroën's Traction Avant (although designed before WW2) was a world first in many ways; front wheel drive that worked and monocoque design to name but two. Yes, Citroën went bankrupt as a result, being rescued by Michelin, but went on to design the DS range of cars, with a unique suspension system and hydraulically controlled almost everything in a body that was, quite literally, God-like! Let's face it, the DS range of cars must be the most beautiful cars ever manufactured! Renault were similarly idiosyncratic and stuck with rear engines long after other manufacturers stopped (4CV, and later the Dauphine, and Caravelle) using the identical engine and gearbox design, albeit reversed, in their front wheel drive cars (R4,5 &6, to name but a few) long after other manufacturers had changed to "east-west" engines. I just LOVE the French way of life: cars, food, way of life, wine, weather, language and most other things! But I am partly French, so that might explain it! *= Renault 4, 6, 10, 25, Citroën 2CV, Xantia, Peugeot 309, 304 & 405
  4. These pictures of snow are lovely. There's noting like this in Hertfordshire at the moment (but then in Hertfordshire, Hampshire and Herefordshire hurricanes hardly happen.........)
  5. (Slightly off topic....) Your observation is correct! The B.B.C. have such a central London outlook that stabbings, murders etc. taking place in Camden are described as having occurred "in north London". While Camden may well have a NW1 postcode, it cannot really be described as "north"! Southgate, Enfield, Winchmore Hill, Barnet, Palmers Green (A.K.A. "Palmers Greek") etc. are "north"!
  6. Seriously rare Daf 33 van in the centre background!

  7. I'm not sure if this qualifies as a "car advert", but it does feature a BMC 1100......
  8. GOTCHA! Wasn't that disco called "Chequers" at some point? My past is beginning to catch up with me!
  9. Sorry, I've just stumbled across this thread and am loving it! I was born in Barnstaple and I think the building in the background with the black sign is (was!) a discotheque the name of which escapes me, but I worked there as a D.J. during the late 1970s/early 1980s. Memories......
  10. "I don't know who you are sir, or where you come from, but you've done me a power of good."

     

  11. This road sign was pictured in a school mathematics book I used during the 1970s! For the life of me I cannot remember why it was in the book, but it might have been something to do with symmetry!
