DS (Déesse), The Goddess. Amazing car, even Roland Barthes wrote about it, you can read it here As I was taking this picture on a lonesome alley in the Hacney night, the owners came, turned the motor on and the DS went away beautifully.

Morris Minor 1000
Quite a usual sight on the streets of London, specially East London; a quite unusal car in the continent!!!
I already posted this photograph back in July on my other blog. But I thought it was worth to see it again. The Minor was designed by Sir Alex Issigonis, just like the Mini.
I don´t know if this car is the so-called 1953 Eldorado, or just the convertible version got the name.

Strange Mini progeny
The doors tell you that it´s somehow related to a Mini, but then everything is quite weird. It has a simple L on the badge. Any idea??

It´s been ages since the last time I saw this car, specially this version. Jolly.

After 8 months of seeing some of the most unbelievable cars (and things on wheels you just wouldn´t know what to call) I have finally decided to keep track of this unique heritage. London, like regarding many other aspects of life, is an incredible place to spot amazing cars. Some of the cars that will be showing up here appear to me as something out of the ordinary. Well, probably many of them surprise me as I am continental, and would not raise much expectation amid british people. Anyway, also many of the cars depicted are not definitely awesome, but it probably has been a long time since the last time we have ever seen anything alike (I can´t deny an emphasis on old-timers of any kind).
Please, feel free to comment on anything you see, as many of the pictures will lack the background or even the less knowledge about the subject. Enjoy!
