    Used to live round the corner from there and walk by every day to work. Glad to see it hasn't changed.

    Ah, an opportunity to submit that again then ;) Hopefully this one hasn't changed.

    Is there any way to delete images? I made 2 mistakes yesterday, that could disappear happily

    Nope. Not that I can see anyway. We might just have to live with it, as we do with our fox pass in writing. ;-)

    Adds to the flavour, if you arks me.

    OK, so (I hope) this is my grandfather's Invercargill car dealership. Not sure of the exact year, but turn-of-the-sixties-ish, probably.

    Lest you think from this minimalist layout that they failed to market themselves appropriately, I have the company's promotional ashtray (!), upon which is emblazoned: "Frazer & Smith: Sell Your Car To Us". Amazingly, I found it a few years ago in a secondhand shop on K Road. :)

    Hasn't advertising lost its way since those days?

    Don't ask me. By the way, the answer to your question may be changing in a day or two. Just working on the omnipotent bit. ;-)

    I imagined a moderator should be able to delete otherwise how are you going to stop dedadedadeda? Might get touchy.

    Getting back on topic - perhaps - just reading this and had to add a photo of little cars outside the house in Anglesea St. Mine was the blue one.

    But we were a Vanguard family and had several - can only find photos of 2 - not the preferred ute or the later Triumphs. I learnt to drive in the Phase II. The last here is when I spotted a beloved Phase II in the carpark in Saxmunden in 2011 and the owner proudly posed

    Morris dancing...

    ...little cars outside the house in Anglesea St

    Makes me wanna reach for a hanky...
    First car my mum owned was a Morris Minor...
    and they used to import and store them
    just along from us, in Battersea St, Sydenham.
    (I used to make a nuisance of myself pestering
    them for promotional car posters and stuff...)

    My Grandmother's Morri' thou' played a big part in my younger life. It had this looooong gear stick with so much play the front seat passenger was likely to get bruises on their knees. As for reverse, if you found it, you pretty much backed home to celebrate.

    The 57 Ford Custom 300 I owned in 2001. It was heavily inspired by the 57-58 Fords that were around when I was a teenager.
