I rarely take pictures of cars but these were so exceptional that I figured I didn’t have any choice. The cars from the 1950’s were just gorgeous.
This car was owned by Princess Di but she only drove it for a few months because there was an outcry from so many quarters about the royal family driving a foreign car. She returned it in September 1992.
The worlds oldest existing truck, originally sold by Daimler into the U.K. in 1898. Truck sales were originally very difficult because motorized vehicles were for the wealthy and people could not envisage their commercial use.
Headed to Germany
Hope to see more of this when we arrive,
