I went to the Thame and Oxfordshire show today (the largest one day county show in England). One of the attractions was a collection of classic cars.

First car in line sported this on its bonnet

Or from a different angle

Then there was this, a truly great British Marque (at least, once upon a time)

And another quintessential British great

Finally a car I remember from my youth that links nicely to the present. You see, my wife was brought up in a quaker village in Buckinghamshire. just up the road from where William Penn is buried. In this village is a barn that is reputed to contain timbers from The Mayflower. And the last photo here is from the Triumph Mayflower

new car emblems are a bit flat plasticy and boring compared to the old ones
and stuck on with tape rather than being really fixed to the car
do you have any more of these?
on a website or something?
i wouldnt mind seeing what the mayflower car looks like

Hi Gumnut,
I remember the Triumph Mayflower well, before I could drive it was an ambition to own one one that never came to pass. They were a very solid looking, angular car, and of course had a chassis beneath it. ... a proper job !. ... Jack.
