    Years ago we owned a car like this one, I still remember the musty smell, the big steering wheel that made you feel like you were in a truck (the heavy steering helped with that feeling), the way I almost had to stand up to use the clutch, the handbreak that was so far to the right I almost couldn’t reach it and that meant that I could never drive up a steep hill by myself, the windscreen wiper (just 1!) that had a motor that would stop whenever the rain was too persistent so you’d have to wipe by hand, the fact that you could put a bicycle standing up behind the driver’s seat it was sooo wide, the vacation driving from Sheerness to Lands End in England, the fact we were driven to church in this car when we married, so many memories…sadly also very much money that went into the upkeep of this car…too much in the end to be fun anymore so we sold it in the nineties.

  3. It’s funny to see this car has so many pictures on the internet, though this is one of the better ones. I saw it when I was in Saigon last year and it made me wonder about it’s life story there. Nice photo!
