That Vauxhall has a very rakish screen. It doesn't offer much protection for the driver.

POTD is one of several old photos to feature the same car, namely a 1924 Sunbeam 14/40 that was eventually broken up in the late 1950s.

POTD is of a fine Aston Martin DB2/4 MkII, which at one time was a factory demonstrator.

Ah yes, clearly displaying the Volvo male sex symbol on the radiator.

Indeed, a status that many old-Volvo drivers have to live with Smile

Hi all,

I am new to the site and probably unusual in being a member. I do not and never have owned a Classic car. I have loved them from being a lad in the 1960s but am what you might call a mechanical black hole. Everything mechanical that I touch falls to pieces. I am also a photographer and blogger and have now combined these interests to develop what I think is a unique way to express my love of old cars. I turn them into works of art.

Here is an example of what I mean.
[img]https://bccablogsite.wixsite.com/bcca/car-art-gallery?lightbox=dataItem-k2988uhl[/img] (alt +p)

This is an Austin Healey 3000 - This one has been set in the hills of mid-Wales.
I have lots more on my blog ( https://bccablogsite.wixsite.com/bcca/ ) and articles, videos etc on cars and owners )but I am not sure whether they are acceptable to members of a site like this. If so I will put more up. If not then I will just have to accept the outsider status of being a non-owner.

It would be great if you could LET ME KNOW[/img]

A low-light Morris Minor parked outside the Raglan Engineering factory on Gamble Street, Nottingham, in the early 1950s.

I recall the Raglan Little John Mk2 5 inch lathe as being a delight to use.

They were bought out by Myford.

I spent many an hour in front of a "Little John" lathe. With the closure of my place of work in the 1970's, much of the equipment was auctioned off. From the maintenance dept' little attention was given to a certain "Little John" lathe that was missing the tailstock, chucks, tool holder and "back gears".

I took it home for the grand sum of 18.

The missing items were found some time later.

POTD for this resurrected thread, a heavily re-touched photo from the 1930s of the rakish Rover Speed 14 Streamline Coupe.

Today's POTD was taken in Utrecht in 1958, and is of a delectable Ford Buckeltaunus van ... not something I've ever seen in the metal.

POTD for today is an action shot of a Standard 10 being driven with a certain amount of gusto, in a 1950s auto-test.



This, and similar photos from the same event, added to OCC in February 2008.

Just look at the road gang steamers in the background!
