Recognition... [Jan. 18th, 2008|01:01 pm]

My brother Richard has gone and bought a new car.

It's about fifty years old.

He thinks it'll be nicely inconspicuous.

It's not a Ford Prefect, is it?

If it's about 50 years old it will probably be this model, which didn't have them:

My Dad had two of those, bought the first second-hand in '61. Got written off in a crash in about '64, I was asleep on the back seat, which was good as the engine ended up in the empty passenger seat.

That's it exactly, the 100E, in a sort of dark blue.

He's a very good mechanic -- he likes getting very old machines and bringing them up to running order. It tends to be motor-bikes or boats, but he's done the occasional car too.

Cool!

And most people don't notice old cars when they're parked singly; just when there's a whole bunch of them lined up somewhere unexpected.
