I’ve always loved that photo, the ‘40’s dimensions, proportions and styling really look near perfect.


It is a lovely photo. And I like how they are trying very hard to make the setting so English looking but yet they are using a USA/Canada car :lol:

That's mine, and believe me, it looks better in the photo than it does in real life ;)

Car 70,000 has been reached, but NOT published. I will be doing a separate article on this car, which is a very very special car, which I know for a fact none of you will have seen before. The owner will be sending me the last of the information in due course - it will be worth the wait.

I have also not included a breakdown of the cars, which I normally do every 10,000 cars. The reason for this is because I have been able to obtain access to a facility which is allowing me to fill in a lot of gaps and identify a lot of lost cars, so the Register is a bit of a mess at the moment whist I add this vital data, and as it is at the moment, any breakdown I publish just now wouldn't be accurate enough for my liking.

(note, the photo is of my Majestic - back in its Leicester Council Mayor days - it is NOT car 70,000)

A very special car. One which no one, including me, knew existed!
