Up for a move? Look no further

Up for a move? Look no further
Having enough of it all? Wanting to break away from your life as it is now? Then you may consider moving to the humble house above in British Columbia, Canada, where the air is clean and nature is overwhelming. Located on 4164 Eldon Frontage Road in Tappen, hidden in the pine woods but just 10 minutes away from the town of Salmon Arm and one hour from the city of Kamloops, an interesting property has come to the market right now. On 5 acres of land you will find a modest house that was recently restored, a 900-square foot workshop, another 1,200-square feet steel building plus… over 300 classic cars! We are not joking.

This is a vintage auto-wrecking business that includes everything you can wish to change all and turn into your own larger-than-life Uncle Jessy personage. To quote the estate agent: “It’s not just purchasing the cars, land and buildings. It is about a lifetime opportunity to spend time doing what people like: restoring vintage cars and living in one of the most beautiful parts of B.C. That value is more than the asking price.” See their ad here. What do you recognize?

Caption it – which way?

Caption it – which way?
The scene is the RAC Rally of 1964. The cars are a Mini Cooper ‘S’ with Mike Sutcliffe at the wheel and a Sunbeam Tiger, driven by the Reverend Rupert Jones and John Clegg (that’s it now). For inspiration, you can see some film footage here. We just say: caption it!

Well used Vauxhalls hail from Pakistan

Well used Vauxhalls hail from Pakistan
Pakistan may be the last place you’d think about when talking classic cars, but several large motor manufacturers had assembly factories in the country. A well-known source claims: “Pakistan produced its first vehicle in 1953 at the National Motors plant in Karachi. The plant was opened in conjunction with General Motors who arranged the facilities for the production of Vauxhall cars and Bedford trucks. In the same year, Ford trucks partnered with Ali Automobiles where they introduced Ford Anglia, Ford pickups and the Ford Kombi. Haroon Industries partnered with Dodge Motors in 1956.” Those were enough goings to put the Pakistanis on the road.

This means of course, that now-classic Vauxhalls, Fords, Dodges and Jeeps can still be seen on the streets of Karachi, Islamabad or Lahore. The Vauxhall seen above is a good example of how the Pakistanis just keep on going, not troubled by MOTs or Health and Safety issues. It may not be the prettiest of Victors available, but it must have proved itself really well after 400,000 kilometres. That’s the mileage the current owner claims. He offers it for sale for 285,000 Pakistan rupees, some 2500 euros…
