    • I don't see what all this ofw  crap has to do with Daniel 
    • Hi Scarlet - I have to say that, to my eyes, an awful lot of the cars from the 40s look like those Vauxhalls, so I'm not sure if we are making progress. One last throw of the dice - the two pictures immediately below are of a 1949 Vauxhall Velox. I've been thinking of this all along, because the first family car that we had, in about 1961, was an old one of these.       We quickly moved onto a more modern car 🙂 - a 1953 Velox like the one below.  But this is similar to cars that IBM pictured earlier.   Veloxes had big 6-cylinder engines. The two that we had could romp up Drumossie Brae.  MInd you, I see that 0-60 took 21 or 22 seconds!   Vauxhall also produced a model called the Wyvern - same body as the Veloxes, but with a 4-cylinder engine.
    • This is a large thread so I'll keep this brief. Summer football...yes. But whatever you choose, day or night , at least you can experiment with the hours but the physical weather conditions  would probably not alter that much. However, with global warming being a definite "yes, " then these weather conditions might change radically and, therefore, would an  an afternoon venue in this case not be preferable?
    • Snorbens. Hullo!. The one on the left is coming much closer  and is very close to the one I remember. But my memory is now my worst enemy. Thank you very much for your efforts. What year? Dunno,  but in the 1940's I Presume. I mean I was old enough to be allowed to drive it and I must have been between 17 and 18 , that being between 1955 and 1956. Flutes on these vehicles are fine and fit the bill. Top speed of this car likely to be between 80=-85 mph Max. I know, at the urgings of the two nut-case farmers I was with for me  to go faster and faster, I ….obliged and noted that I was doing about 75 in a country road near Forfar which was faster than I had ever driven before so  we were having a good  time. Ha Ha.
    • Wow>! A Welsh wizard with words. If they are sincere, however, that's a big compliment , as I read it , to ICT . Sp thank you OFW.
