Found on few scans on the computer for now:-

My mate Dave's first car (20 years ago)


Then he got one of these:


And then this:


In the meantime I had an MGB, and my flatmate a 205


Dad had one of the first range rovers & kept it for years - here delivering a boat down to Spain in the early 80s:


By the time I was old enough to drive it in 1989 it looked like this frown


Must dig out some more older ones smile

It's just got a whole load easier.

When you post a message the window you get should have a row of links at the top

* Formatting Help * Smilies * Rules of Posting * Upload an image (beta)

When you click on "Upload an image (beta)" it should popup a dialog (a little window) with a browse option, you can get choose an image file from you PC. It says this should be less than 2MB in size.

Very cool!
And I am very jealous. Best I could do at that age was a Mk2 Golf with 100k on the clock. I turtle waxed that thing to within an inch of its life and sold it for what I paid for it to my best mate (with a new clutch). Great days.

A couple more of the old slides:



This is Dad's Tuscan V6. Very rare car indeed. Here it is in 1971. Dad had to go to the factory to finish off "building" it himself to avoid having to pay Purchase Tax, or something similar.



Here is the same car, but after it had it's arse painted matt black, as was fashionable in those days. That original exhaust didn't last long either.

Also just visible is the home made baby seat that Dad knocked together and mounted onto the parcel shelf so that I could have my first experience of TVR motoring at the ripe old age of 24 months.



Dad's first E Type. This is probably 1967 or 1968. Pic shows Mum with my Cousin Geoff, who looks suitably pleased with himself.

That E Type, complete with numberplate was sold for £900 in '68.



Here's another picture of Mum's Healey 3000. The year is probably 1967 or 1968.

Love these images, this one in particular. A great shot of the E-type against more mundane (read: lovely!) classics in everyday use. Whats the American style car behind the Jag- a vauxhall?

My parents have many photos of vehicles they've owned from the late 50s onwards, bikes and cars.

The only one I have at the moment is of me with a Beetle, the only thing that's really aged is me frown

Lucky guy, your first car only 3 years old, especially in '67 smile

I don't think I've ever seen a Spit' with steel wheels and chrome hub caps (my favourite combination) but I'm only a youngster roflrolleyes yeah right,

but I do remember those style of "two man" tents and two getting wet if you tried to fit in three and it rained overnight whilst all were sleeping- shared holidays on the cheap - todays kids just don't know . . .

. . it was all fields round here when I was a young girl . . .

hehe at Ridge Tents - Dont touch the sides!!

Fairly sure my parents have photos of their Maxi towing a caravan in the early 70s. Also some of their Standard 8 & Morris Traveller I believe.
