Past to Present

The other day whilst underneath the Morry checking out some of the suspension rubbers.... I had a sudden Epiphany that allowed me to really realise how long ago the little thing was manufactured.  So basically as a point of thought for this epiphany i thought about the fact my dad is the same age as the car.

Of course this led to thoughts of a little crying baby Bert Edgley....... Anyhow the fact that really occurred to me is that the car basically looks the same today as it did when it was being driven in 1958. I wonder if the purchase of the car was at a similar time to my dads birth. That would be a little interesting to know.  The next thing that also occurred to me at this stage is that the car has been cared for so thoroughly and is a real attribute to the previous owners for the loving care that Mr Guk received in his hey day. So for this article as a tribute to the loving family that he came from- here is a memory for all of you as readers to join in on.

So as part of a folio piece I completed in 2016 I created this photograph at the Monbulk Creek trestle bridge.

I will soon upload a very old photo of the fine little car :) Perhaps one from 50 odd years ago ?
