Hi Rick
This seems to bolster the ident of that Bugatti on the pedal car page.

I suspect that's a slightly posher version of mine, with the headlamps, wings, and opening door(s), but the basic shape is certainly a close match.

New also is a page describing the Lumax range of fog- and spot-lamps available to the mid-1960s motorist.

I can't say that I've ever been much tempted to buy car seat covers, but in the 1960s clearly there was a market. Here, a leaflet for Imperial-brand covers.

On and off I've been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes updates to older pages on the site recently. Added in today though, a sheet from 1924 issued by Morris Motors, that acted as an aide memoir for sales agents regarding factory insurance cover.
