#ShortWrytz : Anglia ‘67

(Above: The new Ford Anglia of 1967)

I came across this image the other day: a Ford Anglia, 1967. We had one, just this colour, and it was new. The first new car our family ever had.

We’d had it about two weeks when Dad packed us all in and we motored off in the sunshine to Colwyn Bay; there to spend a few days in a B&B, and enjoying the car along various roads on the North Wales coast.

He kept the clear plastic covers on the seats for about two months – till Mum made him remove them one hot day… people did, back then. Anything new was so special!

Heaven… and happy memories. Dad’s been gone these past ten years, but his love of cars lives on… Dunno who saved the poster, but thank you!
