Bay to Birdwood Requests

I have had a couple of requests for particular vehicles; one from a regular blogger and the other from one of the entrants.

This is a British built Armstrong Siddeley. It was spotted by Aileni in the background of a photo I posted on Monday. Aileni owned a 1947 Armstrong Siddeley Typhoon.

This is a Morgan 3 wheeler. The request was from Warren and Cheryl. The photo is very much cropped from the image below.

Another British car manufacturer, The Morgan Motor Company was founded by H.S.F Morgan in 1910 and is still building cars today; the latest prototype being a fuel cell-powered electric vehicle; the Morgan LIFEcar (Lightweight Fuel Efficient Car).

A car I haven't seen in decades - it is in the Morgan picture: a Jowett Javelin' It had, as I recall, a horizontally opposed engine that sounded like a 'box of nails'.
There was so much variety back in the Fifties.
The Armstrong is great - thanks.
