Wheels With Attitude (5)

Ford Y and Prefect, both in fairly original condition.

1969 Volvo 1800S in a striking tone of red.
A European sports car with a touch of American in those taillights and rear wigs.
Not everyone's cup of tea, but I like them.

This 2.0 litre (if you hadn't guessed) Ford Escort GL , first went on the road in 1969.

351 cubic inches of 1972 Ford Falcon GT.

I've seen this 1948 Mercury at shows in the past, but its one of those cars I just have to take another photo of.

Vauxhall Cresta EIP . This model would have been replaced by the PA not long after this one was produced.

1963 Ford Galaxie looks great in white and has 351 cubes of power..

A couple of icons of British motoring.
The Ford Escort was a big seller in the small car field, while the Triumph Stag was a rather new concept for the Brits, a sort of gentleman's convertible with V8 power.

1951 Rover 75 "Cyclops".

Two developments of the Rootes Group Arrow model.
A Singer Vogue and a Sunbeam Rapier.

Another Arrow model, the Humber Sceptre.
But I still much prefer the earlier Mk 1 and Mk 2 Sceptres.

The Humber Hawk of 1954 had a 2.2 litre 4 cylinder engine.

1979 Ford Escort Estate with 2.0 litre power.

Neat little 1937 Austin Seven Sport.

Moto Guzzi 1000 Le Mans.

1962 Dodge Dart convertible is powered by Chrysler's much used 318cid V8
and is fitted with great looking steel wheels.
