I just love this car. The owner is a friend and WWII aircraft enthusiast. I believe it's a Hillman?

Some suicide doors are fine. Others you risk your life and limb as the A pillar flexes. A fellow Allard owner had his open on the Autobahn on his way to Techno Classica in Essen. Much easier to get into a difficult car though!

Nice car, I like to see these on the road! Not all classics have to be exotic, and some of the names of that era were seriously good quality (like Rover or Humber inter alia) which rather lost their way later.

Cue second gratuitous shot of my Allard M type drophead in as many days

Bruce - he ought to take it up to an open day at Bicester Heritage - it's a superb classic car and classic aircraft place at the old RAF Bicester, an old Bomber command base with buildings dating back to the 30s and 40s - it would look perfect there! The portfolio of my Allard sale photos was taken there by Nick Froome of this parish, it's a brilliant backdrop.

View from an old shelter there
