:D :D :D
I do love the smell of a Model A.
There was always a faint whiff of petrol inside from a weeping fuel connection under the dash, or was it the seal on the little petrol guage glass? Can't remember but what fun those cars were, especially after a level crossing. A proper tank slapper.
Humanity landed on the moon over fifty years ago but it seems too much to ask for a reliable telephone/internet service in rural France.

I do prefer the smell of summer holiday, going where the sun shines brightly. Roof rack memories of the sixties.

The Golf behind the Model A is the real star, it’s passed 300,000km mark yesterday morning. One careful owner from new.

No must-have new car infotainment features, huge display, loads of hard to find menu items, even for simple functions. Only analogue instruments, what you see is what you need and what you get. At a glance.

An old Volvo logo - back to the sixties with reflections of today's sky - the one and only P1800.

My brother in law arrived yesterday afternoon with his TR 6 (1969). Probably imported from the USA (California?), in showroom condition.

Far too much information.
