Snapshot Sunday : Vintage Cars

A little way down the road from me on the High Street here in Oatlands someone owns some very nice vintage cars. One day while out walking I took some photos of them. I thought it would be fun to change them to black and white and age them a bit. Here are some shots of two very cool cars, a Humber and a Six Eighty. So cool that they live here but surprising they always seem to be left out in the street.

Six Eighty
This is a Six Eighty.
This is a Humber


I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see


    • Thank you for that. I wanted to try and capture how these cars would have looked in their era. I was pleased with the effect I got.
