What classic vehicles have you seen?

Here's the place to chat about all things classic. Also includes a feedback forum where you can communicate directly with the editorial team - don't hold back, they'd love to know what they're doing right (or wrong of course!)

Saw a late (Chunky bumper type) Allegro this morning, parked banger fashion, on the side of the road, with all the "Moderns". Whether you think of the car as the Allagro is besides the point; it has clearly been looked after to still be around and looked sound. It would be a pitty if some coal in the bath merchant wrecks it.

Then I saw an N reg (1974 - 5) electric milk float in Abergavenny, still apparently working for a living.

The only car ever to be available with an electric window on one door only, as far as I know. :ugeek: I like those, especially their torsion bar suspension and that rattle from the engine. Quite why the Dodge-badged version did away with the bars in favour of coils and struts is anyone's guess, maybe Americans are frightened of anything more comfortable?
