The French made such sleek cars back in the day.

I like the body style of that Ford. It reminds me of a Rolls in some respects.

Mk2 Cortina 1600E. They're quite collectible.

The genes that enable the modern Audi driver to park over two spaces were present even when it was DKW.

Two strokes are exempt from the normal parking regulations.

They're also exempt from emissions testing even if they're new enough to need MOT or equivalent tests.

RE: How I love to live in the counrtyside.
Such strange looking vehicles. I have been attending car shows most of my life. I've never see a Mini Cooper panel car. I never saw a pre-Audi DKW (funny parking comment, Yaaay). I never heard of a Midas (looks 4-wheeled and fiberglass), and I never heard of a Zodiac. I would really enjoy car shows over there! Thanks for posting, Ce He Sin.

RE: How I love to live in the counrtyside.
The Ford Zodiac/Zephyr Mk3 was to my knowledge the last European Ford to have an inline six. The following Mk4 had the Essex V4 and V6 while at the same time Ford Germany were allowed the luxury of their own Cologne V4 and V6. They stopped using the V6 in 1996 due to no longer making anything that would use it but kept exporting it to Ford US for years afterwards.

Here's a rear view of the Zodiac. Note the fins, it being a car of its time.

Note that it's a really posh one because it has a Borg Warner automatic, a rare thing indeed. No power steering at any price though.

The Midas was a kit car with Mini bits.

Here's another view of the DKW van. Note the headlights which aren't where you would expect and the interesting location of the fuel tank in the context of frontal impacts, electrical parts beside it and a hot engine below it.

A two stroke triple which the owner says will do an easy 60 mph.

RE: How I love to live in the counrtyside.
When I was in school in K-town, many moons and mango chutneys ago, we used to see a few of the Ford Zephyr and Capris around town. Opel Rekord, Ford Taunus, Simca, Morris Minor and Skoda 1000MB were also present. So was Moskvitch, built and drove like a Siege of Leningradsky tank.

Zodiac MKIII is one fine car. Rides very smoothly and the 2.5l six has plenty of torque

Our paediatric medical charity provided first aid services at our local village Feast and Festival last weekend.

Serious vintage car accident requiring urgent assistance:

It's a Riley, and he was very grateful for the push start.

Tea, Nasir?

Note trendy eclectic crockery.

Rival charity stall adjacent to ours. I never did quite work out what they did, but her green balloons gradually burst thunderously throughout the afternoon, each one making us jump out of our skins.

That was quite funny, frank. I had to scroll back.

RE: How I love to live in the counrtyside.
I think we need to further explore and revel in a Mk3 Zodiac.

Note the blueness of everything, the unrestored vinyl, the strip speedometer, the column gearchange attached to a Borg Warner 35 automatic box (power went in one end, never to be seen again), the manual choke, the ring horn push and best of all (though not contemporary) the 8 track player with a Status Quo cartridge.

If you own a MK2 Jag you become very experienced in changing Borg Warner transmissions

When I first read this post, I checked out some images. I like this car.

Nice shot, thanks for sharing. Your description of the interior is the way I appreciate cars, too. That trip odometer with a large chrome stalk must have been quite a luxury feature. In a small way, it reminds me of a mid-'60's American Motors Rambler.

Two F/A-18 Hornets. I pulled my cellphone out to catch the last Flyover. I admit it is a terrible video.

RE: How I love to live in the counrtyside.
Happy Labor Day from Maryland- Home of the Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab!

1. I like to refrigerate crabs first to make them sleepy and less active.
2. Mix beer and water in steamer.
3. Place steamer on high until boiling.
4. Add Maryland Old Bay Seasoning to crabs.
5. Place crabs in steamer and reduce heat by half.
6. Wait 20 minutes. [Image: 6p1b8n.jpg]

Yes they do. Those are called Soft Shell Crabs or Peelers. Crabs shed their shell, then their body grows a larger outer shell again. Right after the shell has been shed, the crab is soft and mostly meat. Certain areas are cut off before cooking. Soft shell crabs make great sandwiches.
