Classical Cars

Peugeot 204.
1965, April. Peugeot's first front wheel drive car. weighted at 850kgs, reaches 140km/h.
that makes driving the 204 still a mere pleasure even after 45 years.

it almost extinct. it's now listed as an endangered species. 
it is the(D) Morris. 
Morris Minor Traveller.
classical side mirror at front end.
LUCAS front beam
Original Morris Minor Rim. with flat tyre.
and a little side signal below the front beam
authentic Morris Minor fuel cap. 
most unimaginable of all. 
the Traveller is made of wood at its' rear. 
made of selected England Ash, manufactured by Traveller Timbers
the inspiration behind this? Alec Issigonis. the Designer of Morris Minor back in 1953. 
his idea, was unfamiliar, unearthly, but bold. he defied the elements in car making history. 
and that, make his a legendary car designer.
look! the clock is still ticking. and hell yeah. i shot this at 1:35-am middle of the night.
it's the wild Volkswagen Scirocco!!! named after italian word. sirocco- means wind. 
it is the first widely successful front wheel drive hatchback in the history.
hero behind the wheel. Italian designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro. 
a Ford Mustang mimic. Opel Manta A.
was a big sales back then. unlike muscle car Mustang, it merely 1.2L CIH engine in Europe, and 1.9L CIH in America. 
Austin Motor. was a British manufacture. now owned by Nanjing Automobile.
the 1976 Austin Mini Classic. 
like classic car? get a classic car instead of modern car.
