I think it's a collapsible table at an auto-jumble. ;)


Must have been worth a lot with that ornate flower vase on it :rolleyes:

Should I have bought this?

It would make a good vase for dried flowers. ;)


If it had been for a 40 it would make a good vase for 10 more flowers. Perhaps not, but there must be a Lotus joke here somewhere? :drunk:

The joke would have to include the word "mistakes" and "bravery".  ;)

Precision engineering. Much as I hate the use of electronic flash, on this occasion there was no alternative.

Engineers on the forum will appreciate just how much effort went into the creation of this brake drum.

The Rare Breeds catalogue mentioned it was difficult to drive, shame the idea of the hand operated tilting engine to engage the clutch did not catch on :drunk:

Made in England.

I'm thinking of running off some large (A2, A1 even?) prints of this one. Obviously the file has been massively down-sized for the inter-web. Please let me know what you think- if "crap" or "needs more work" come to mind, your comments would be especially welcome.

No, I really like it! My only thought might be to square it up a smidge, an easy fix in Photoshop. (can walk you through if you don't know)

How's that printer treating you???

Saw this today at the Avenue Drivers Club meeting in Queens Square, Bristol on a 1933 Morris Cowley, it was one of a pair mounted each side of the windscreen on the bonnet and looks exactly the same on the reverse (rear facing) side, does any one know what it is/does ?

Relevant answers maybe used on a forthcoming blog.

Thanking you in anticipation of your responses.

I wonder if they were fitted during the war as a consequence of blackout regulations imposed at the time? The presence of the shroud to prevent light being radiated upwards has that flavour about it.

Looks to me to be a fancier version of the early "trafficators" that were available in the period. Most were basic amber arrows (some lighted) that would be raised to indicate a turn is being made.

I wondered if there was a war connection fredeuce, though they look a bit too elegant for anything produced during the war, and i'd imagine them being in a utility matt finish.

Robby, trafficators also sprung to mind, but if so what was the function of the red and green lights top and bottom ?

No idea what the car is, but if it is as appears rear engined, I'd hazard a guess it might direct air towards a fuel pump to prevent fuel vapourisation.

Honestly I have no idea where the air goes. It's all covered up inside by the seat. But it looks neat!
Some hints: it's a (rear)mid-engined race car who's sound has been metioned here a few times before on a different threat.
