Launched in 1969 somehow as the European counterpart to the very succesful Ford Mustang. It´s silhouette and C shaped rear window make it unmistakable. It was then adevertised as "The car you always promised yourself".

Ford Mustang GTA
I'm no expert in American cars, but I reckon this is probably the 1967 version. The A on GTA stands for Automatic. Quite a surprise to find this sort of car on a London Street.

Morris Oxford VI
Launched in 1961 was a restyling of the Oxford V. As a BMC (the 1952 merger of Austin and Morris)the car had its twin, the Austin A60 Cambridge. Both having been designed by Pininfarina, like the beuatiful A40 Farina. Apparently, the long tailfins (although smaller in the VI series than in the V) were a typical desing feature of those models

This blog was created for this sort of car. Never in my life have I seen or heard about this car. Vanden Plas is an originally Belgian company that has worked throught the XX century together with many major car constructors (including Jaguar, Daimler, Rolls Royce to name a few). By the mid-seventies they created this luxury verison of the Austin Allegro. One of the funniest cars I´ve seen in London.

After some months living in London and seeing some of the most unbelievable cars and bizarre things-on-wheels, I have finally decided to keep track of this unique heritage.
Don't forget to check the archive for surprises.
