Art Deco, Napier, 2019...(7).

the 1941 Cadillac Series 62, certainly had presence.

This '36 Packard 120B was for sale.
Just $175,000 ono.

Traction Engine by Ransomes, Sims and Jefferies of Ipswich.

1939 Packard Station Wagon.
Another rare one.

Neat old '41 Ford truck with load of straw.

1932 Chevy Pick-up.

1951 Sunbeam S8 and suitably attired gentleman.

Hats and parasols were everywhere.

Two gents admire the '51 Royal Enfield.

Sometimes it was difficult to snap a car without someone posing for another camera.
Behind the young lady is a 1934 Chrysler 6.

1933 Pierce Arrow, another fairly rare beast.

1930 Chrysler 77 Roadster.
The deep red and black paint just makes this car.

A '37 Buick this time.

...a 1938 Chrysler Touring Sedan.

Art Deco, Napier, 2019...(6).

A 1920s and a 1930s Austin.

The smooth lines of a '46 Chevrolet Fleetmaster Coupe.

1937 Chevrolet Master.

I can remember slightly earlier models like the DX, but I don't remember many of this model.

1935 Chrysler Airstream Sedan.

This Ford V8 truck I would have gladly taken home.

1937 Ford V8 Sedan.

1938 Dodge Sedan in a very fitting colour.

Another big Buick.
A 1937 40 Special.
I love these cars.

The Ford Prefect was a popular first car when I began driving.
They could be picked for very reasonable amounts back then.

Very sweet little '38 Austin Ten.

A 1934 Bentley 3.5 litre.

Another one of those lovely big Buicks.
A 1938 Special.

1928 Ford Model A Tudor and a
1938 AJS R4 350.

A 1930 Austin Seven Swallow.
Swallow began by making sidecars, then moved on to making sport models of everyday cars (like this one).
Next they built their own cars under the name SS and then finally changed their products name to the more familiar Jaguar,
which explains the rego plate on this one.

1936 Riley Tourer.

1934 Talbot Tourer.
