If I may reminisce for a moment?...I remember when my Company car- a Lancia Beta - had a CV joint disintegrate right in the middle of Dunster. There were bits scattered all over the road! A kindly local farmer towed us behind his tractor to a garage. I recall he refused any payment for his trouble.

The spare part had to come from Italy so we had a prolonged holiday. Every cloud....

We were given this photo recently by a family member. At the wheel of this lovely Austin 7 is my maternal Grandfather, its early post-war. The young girl is a living relative and he is wearing army battledress.

Not such an old photo, this is my late friend's Singer Le Mans, taken on its maiden trip after a total restoration. The location is Crummock Water in the Lake District, in November 1968.

The car disappeared from view after Bruce sold it a few years later, and has been unknown to the Singer Club since, so it was a surprise to find it less than ten miles from me just as I last remembered it. I doubt if it has done a thousand miles in the last fifty years!

A nice, unspoiled example I would have thought.

I suppose the competition would have been the MG PA midget?

Hi
#4 shows the Yarn Market at Dunster.
I feel I ought to know the Ship Inn and the parking among the rocks, but can't figure them out at the moment.


Edit.

The Ship Inn is Porlock Wier.


The 'Rocks' look like Winnats Pass, near Castleton in the Peak District.

My folks traded in a 1949 Studebaker in on a New 1951 Studebaker and bought a huge trailer and towed it from Pennsylvania where we were living out to the land of opportunity California in 1951.
I remember laying in the shelf below the back window playing tail gunner



too bad my mom cut my dad's head off

It looks like someone was a "ban the bomb" supporter.

I remember having a Dinky model of that car. Was it called the Hawk?

I think the ban the bomb on the side of the trailer is just some kind of reflection. My sergeant major father would not have any of that .
- Ban the bomb was more of a 60's thing

It was a Studebaker Champion flat head 6
