Thank for your comment V-8 Woodie,

 

As you said its just a selection of photos , and did not represent the average portugusese classic car, even if the weather helps a lot...

Some kind of a barn find near Lisbon, the owner is the grand father of a friend and have the habit to keep everything, he think that one day will restore this car, but probably it will never apens due to the car (very very very) poor condition...

Nuno, I think a different Hornet has made a nest in this Hornet, however, I'm sure this Wolseley can still be restored, I have seen worse examples!!

Another Wolseley, our 6/99 outside the Hotel in Santa Margherita - Italy,

 

and with a dissapearing Fiat 600, scuttlling off into the far distance

Some dirty rotten swine nicked (thieved/stole)my camera, out of the partially open window of the Farina saloon,

I got a model Masserati 3500, in temporary compensation, but later a Goldbeck Camera Tesco Jack Cohen gave my Dad.

I still have that but not the Masser model, or the equally desirable DB4 one that was my favourite car then, as now.

Mind you I guess any full size Maserati would equally fit the bill(in my imagined wish list).

Either the black and white film was taken out before said Brownie got half inched(stolen)

or it was taken by one of my sisters-talking sisters or in this particular  case a Brother,

we picked up a hitch hiking Monk in Switzerland,

not something we made a habit of....

GBt; thanks for sharing memories

Mario, nice bunch of DSs

V-8 Woodie; The Hornet is in very poor state with serious estrutcural corrosion and the owner have no skills even to evaluate this and he know that, for sure he is not interested to spend the money necessary to do do such restauration.

Nothing glamorous, but this afternoon I saw a 1950s split-screen Morris Minor. That's the first I've seen that's road capable.
