    (Who made those electric delivery trucks?)
    Ford Consul or Zodiac (hard to tell difference).
    Ford Cortina Mk 1.

        Ah sure we all have something eh. Though I suspect for people of my generation it’s just an unstudied recollection of a time when cars had more glamour, individuality, build quality, (if not mechanical reliabiliy) than they do today. A time when you could lift the bonnet and tinker/service/repair. Unlike today where diagnostics have killed all that. I think for most of us, car knowledge was picked up by simple osmosis.
