15 Classic Cars in Weston-super-Mare

So let’s be frank about this, I really don’t know that much about classic cars, however I have recently thought it would be nice to own an old classic motor.

These photographs were taken at a recent classic car event in Weston-super-Mare, I can guess what some of them are, but please add a comment if you are more confident than me in what they are.

1. 1931 Austin Seven Swallow

2. An American car of some kind… 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air – 938 XUP

3. Who knows, but nice wheels! Chevrolet  – SV 6473

The Doors in a Ford Training Film

The Doors provided instrumental backing to a training film for Ford, before recording their first album. Recorded in 1966 and not previously released.

Rather than watch the whole film, just watch the end credits to hear some classic sounds from the Doors (and see their name in the credits).

You can watch the whole film, but remember this was made in 1966 and though focussed on customer service, is rather sexist.
