On Tuesday evening, a bundle of muscle cars and American trucks arrived on the Weston seafront for a “cruise”
Nice looking vehicles, but to be honest I have no idea what they… though I can see this is a US Ford F150 pickup truck.
…and this one is an older Ford pickup truck.
A Ford Popular.
No idea what this one is….
Big gas guzzler…
A Ford hotrod!
A Ford Mustang?
All looked very nice, bright and shiny.
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
4. 1950s car, Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire – 172 CEV
5. A blue car…
6. Another classic, 1920s or 1930s?
7. A Rolls Royce from the 1970s…
8. Hmmm, 1949 Riley 1.5 Litre – KXN 114
9. Okay, so I know the sun glare doesn’t help… Riley – RDV 566
10. This one I am pretty confident is a Morris Minor 1000 Traveller.
11. Bodie and Doyle would like this Ford Capri
12. Another American car, calling Dick Tracey, calling Dick Tracey…
13. A wedding car…
14. Willys Jeep
15. Custom BMW Mini.
So can you help me out, please add a comment if you know what some of these cars are.
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.
