Random # 142: Alfa Veloce Sprint

Image
The Alfa Sprint pictured here is the Series (or Mk?) II version of the small front-wheel drive hatch, if that's the correct nomenclature.  Either way, it's the second iteration of the model, sharing the same basic wedge shaped body with its predecessor but with plastic front and rear bumpers, and cosmetic front- and rear-end changes.   


The car was in reasonable condition for its age, with some rust and paint fading but nothing drastic  The interior was pretty tidy.  It also appeared to feature all its original accessories, right down to the eight-hole tele-dial Alfa wheels.

Random # 141: Triumph Stag

Image
This isn't this blog's only Stag and it's unlikely to be its last.  It looked great, especially with its hardtop attached.  What else is there to say?  Nothing, really.  Enjoy!

Random # 140: Morris Minor Traveller

Image
Same Bat-place.  Different Bat-car!  (Vale, Adam West!)  Not the same Bat-car as featured in this 'blog as a Transition Traveller, either (http://uppermiddlepetrolhead.blogspot.com.au/2016/12/morris-minor-week-car-1-1956-1000.html); this one's a bit later, featuring a one-piece windscreen, whereas the former had split-style front glass with a vertical chrome joining strip up the centre.
