Thought you might be interested in how many “toys” a boy can own. These are my family of cars over the years.
(I think I can remember them all).
Maybe you can “Show & Tell” us about cars you have owned.
Way back in 1963, when I jumped ship in Australia I bought my first car. A Triumph Mayflower AKA a Triumph “Butterbox”.
Then shortly thereafter I “progressed” to a Ford Zephyr, about a 1950 model. The salesman told me “not to buy it” . I did… He was right !!!!!!
From there I have had, to the best of my memory:
A Ford 500 One with the “torpedo tubes” on the rear sides.
A Ford Single Spinner Ute
A 1959 EJ Holden Van.
A Morris Oxford about 1950 model.
An Austin Healy (Bug eyed) Sprite.
A beautiful Singer Gazelle. Great car!
A Commer “Knocker”.
A “Mr Whippy” van . Caught fire on the streets much to the amusement of the kids !!
A 1959 EJ Holden Wagon.
A 1960 HD Holden station wagon.
A 1960 Mercedes (Former Diplomatic car from Singapore.)
A Toyota Land Cruiser bought new in about 1976,
for a 1 year trip around Australia with a 32 foot caravan we had especially built for the purpose.
A 1960 Toyota Corolla bought to take as a “scout car’ on the trip (Died & buried in the Snowy Mountains).
A V6 Mark 11 Jaguar (Mine).
A V12 Jaguar. (Jewel’s).
A LWB Landrover.
A Toyota Corona Wagon.
A Toyota Lexcen station wagon.
A 1988 Toyota Camry station wagon.
A 2002 Toyota Altise
A 1981 Mercedes 320SE bought as a Valentines day present for Jewel.. Made the TV and newspaper !!!!
A very useful vehicle.
I don’t know how I ever managed without one !!!
Mitsubishi Triton Ute.
And the latest addition to the list for Jewel’s birthday August 2016
she is the slickest granny on the road. 🙂
2008 Toyota Aurion Sportivo. Absolute “magic” !!!
Our latest addition. Kia Rio bought for $100. Needed a clean and a bit of bumper touch up.
Bought this at Auction.. Cheap.. Mechanic had it for 18 months.. Cost me “an arm and a leg” sold it for a loss. Moral is don’t buy from auctions. (Although the Kia above was a good auction buy)
