You joke, but there was still a lot of horse drawn carts still around :D :D :D ;)

Usually our transport consisted of two legs, our own ::) ::) We walked everywhere around town. ;) 

After that it was the bus and train to get to London! 8) 8) :y

We are ALL so lazy now!! :o :o :o

Tis no Royale, thankfully, as theres harly any left. Definitely a Beemer, though not 'up' enough on my BMWs to know which one, early 5 series at a guess.

Though the colour is bang on a very typical shade that many Royales and Sennys used.

That threw me as well then.  My Senny was in that colour 8) 8)

A BMW eh YZ250?  I also do not know my BMW's, but come to think about it the car does have a coupe type, bit square at the back end, shape that one BMW had in the 1980's. :D ;)

Correction:  Seen the advert again and my Senny was never that colour! ::) ::) :-[ :-[ :-[  It is a nice shade of metallic bronze on that BMW. 8) 8) ;)

Cars are certainly very 'samey'  these days .......especially small cars.

Without a badge of identification to help me I wouldn't know a small Renault from a small Pug, Citroen, Mazda, Ford or Vauxhall. :-X


Cars have ALWAYS been 'samey', as they all have to conform to the same packaging requirements and the style of the day. So every now and then, there's a sudden change, before all the other manufacturers follow.


Just look at thirties cars; the only way to tell the difference is to look at the grille.


Then you have Ford Consuls and the A90 Westminsters of the fifties; the same silhouette, just slightly different chrome trims.


Mk2 Cortina and Hillman Hunter?


mk1 Escort, Avenger and Marina? They could be brothers, let alone cousins


Polo and Fiesta? Golf and Horizon? Alpine and Cavalier hatchback? Astra and mk3 Escort?


Primera and Mondeo?


etc, etc




Modern platform sharing makes this even more apparent. VAG cars are obviously the same, as a quick look at areas like the windscreen pillars, scuttles and sills show, but it doesn't take much to spot the relationship between the Ka and 500, or Renaults and European Nissans

What does the Bond bug and Clan Crusader resemble? ;)

Design? Maybe. If you wear your last prescription spectacles. And squint a bit.


Style? Hahahahahahaha. Sorry, I promised I'd stop that. No.


Deluded? There are worse problems.
