Can I take you home vintage Vanguard?

What do you do when you have no internet access for a WEEK!!!

No, it isn't fatal but any longer could have been.

Stuck in a cabin in a little country town, I spent days looking and sorting through thousands of photos stored on external hard-drives (yes,a naughty way to store too many, I know).

I found some photos I liked of two old cars that were near the house we had to live in for Mr Crazy House's work.

Down a dirt track on a misty morning while the kids were still asleep, we would sometimes go, with the camera looking for something to photograph. There are more opportunities in the country to take the "rusty" photos I love. So I was happy to find these old wrecks.

A vintage Vanguard car and Vanguard ute.

Just stitting in a paddock all alone.

Almost hidden in the mist.

The Vanguard was produced by the Standard Motor Company in Coventry UK.

A vintage dashboard, no cruise-control, just cruising.

A Vanguard Phase I.
I think, produced from 1947 to 1953, their export focus was Australia after the World WarII.
The ute production ceased in 1964.

A hint of green.

And to think you would have looked like this once.
