Fourth addition of the day, is a great trio of photos that feature a 1950 Bedford PC Van, that's been family-owned from new in Brazil and is still in regular use.

That's a nice story, I think we forget how much was actually exported and to where in the world!

Sounds strange 'hitting a horse and cart coming the other way', we forget that horses were still used until relatively recently, the 1940's/50's I would presume.

Another Austin addition, this time of a fabulous camper based on an early-1930s chassis (model?).

A look at a recent book find, titled "Seeing Britain & the Continent from an Austin" dating to the early 1930s. I've reproduced the introductions to the book on the page below, as its tone sums up everything I like about pre-war motoring in general (rose-tinted spectacles set to maximum!).

Win a new Vauxhall Victor FB (in 1964), with this guess-the-mileage challenge. An original book of entry tickets recently discovered.
