This strange fascination I seem to have with old cars started many years ago, due to certain financial ... er ... challenges when I was young, and led to me digging out an old Reliant sidevalve van from someone's back garden in 1970. Ever since then I've had some kind of morbid interest in old cars. Not the veteran/vintage type, but just the ordinary family type thing that most people would throw away because it didn't have the latest accessory.
I contend that there's some considerable logic in this, because the fewer fancy electrical options there are in a vehicle, the easier it is to maintain. Many people "have a go" at me for this, running around in old polluting bangers, but firstly whatever emissions they pump out, it's certainly less than the emissions and waste of natural resources involved in making a new car, and secondly it is possible to make near zero-emission cars by running on biofuels.
This fascination I have has spawned some pretty interesting adventures, many of which are documented on the web pages that you will find below. Have a good browse through if you have time.
When I have the time, I'll put up some more pages of interesting items. Meantime, take a look at
