    They were still using engines in the Mid 70's dating back to 1948, lack of investment and re-tooling whilst the Germans got paid to do it. Sad really.

    Some kind of convergence here; I remember in the 70's towing a friend's [rubber universal-less] BMC Austin 1800 across most of the Nullabor Plain.... We left it in Eucla. The bloody thing turned up a month later in Perth. He fixed it up and then it had a Hydro suspension haemorrhage. But hey, it made it across Australia and for a time travelled at speeds never envisaged by the manufacturer: Tow vehicle? my mighty Valiant Charger!!

    I couldn't get a whole vehicle pic as it's pushed into the corner of a workshop

    It is a 1984 Chev C30 pickup; 6.2 litre diesel V8, US Army version

    Early 2000s the owner bought 12 of these from Japanese dealer, they were ex US Army at Okinawa.
    He converted five to right hand drive (New Zealand), six sold 'as is' and kept one for a ' one day' project, he has everything required for the rhd conversion, last had this one running 2017. Came complete with log book and full maintenance schedule.
    Of the others, believes some were kept as our farm vehicles, had seen one being re-sold about 10 years ago.



    Also in his shed, a 1982 El Camino awaiting some rust repairs and a re-power.
    And an Isuzu tip-truck, Honda and Triumph motorbikes ... ' one day'

    the one next to the tr6 is an mg 1600, not a nash healy.

    i had both an e-type and a tr6, the tr6 was a more enjoyable car to drive but horribly unreliable. the e type was too powerful and even less practical than the triumph.

    the MG 1600 and MGA were differentiated by their engines and by a couple of design differences that are impossible to see in that photo.

    there do appear to be 2 MGBs there. maybe one is a V8, the MGC

    The V8 only came in the GT style and the MGC had a different bonnet then the two cars in the picture have. I am pretty sure that they are both early MGBs.

    yes, you are right.

    the MGC was a 6 cylinder engined version of the MGB, and came in hatchback or convertible.

    The MGBGT was the V8 version and was only a hatchback.

    Ahh.. so Sid's been cheating on Google then

    . In all, we had eight participants in our British car roundup: a 1970 Jaguar E-Type, a 1965 Lotus Elan, a 1959 MGA, a 1976 Triumph TR-6, a 1965 Sunbeam Alpine, a 1959 Austin-Healey Sprite MkI and two MGBs, a 1966 that was slightly modified, and a 1972 that had been taken back to as close to original as possible.
    So which one is the Healey?

    A mate has just bought a series 1 XKE from the original owner who reckons he shagged every eligible girl in his country town in it when new.
    And probably a few wives ...

    I watched a re-run of James May's Cars of the People last night was, interesting because it was about shit British cars like the one in post 2060.
    I am talking about the not so mighty Allegro.
    James was scathing about the commo unions and shit management that resulted in the miscarriage of that shitbox,
    He compared it against the new Mazda 323.chalk and cheese in quality,build etc,no wonder BL bit the dust.
