A nice selection - pilots seem to have made some left-field choices. And there's a Husky Series III as one of the unknowns. Also in the Sunbeam Alpine picture, obscured behind the Alfa between the Mini woodie and the VW KG - is that a Lancia Flaminia coupe?? very rare in UK so worth bringing out if there are other views

Pininfarina liked recycling his designs as much as possible. Fortunately they were good designs.....

You've obviously not driven an A55 Mk II Cambridge. Gutless and directionally challenged, 616 DUY I recall every purgatorial mile!

There was nothing wrong with Pininfarina's design of the ADO9s: witness the Peugeot 404. The trouble was the way BMC styled and built the damn things. I've driven an A55 Mk.II and it felt like it was going round corners in two instalments.

I never understood why they didn't use rack and pinion steering and torsion bar front suspension on the Farinas. The earlier Oxford was a lot better handling car than the Austins, yet they went for the Austin design. Must have been cheaper to produce.

No, I'm too young etc. An uncle on my dad's side had a 2-tone green Oxford S5 when my dad had S3a Minxes, and the Minxes were much faster; there was one famous family occasion when the brothers swapped cars on a holiday trip along the A5 from Birmingham to Anglesey and my dad who was the faster driver blew the Oxford's gasket trying to keep up with the Minx.

Being critical of British engineering, the "not invented here" attitude was previlent I guess even then.

If Austin had the engineering responsibility they were bound to follow Austin rather than Morris practice. I suppose the Engineering department was at the Austin plant at Longbridge, I ran up against Longbridge thinking during LM10/LM11.

Oldest car I have driven was my first car a 10 year old 71 Triumph Herald 13/60 convertible.
Or as Jasper Carrot said they should be called a 'Triumph Whats That Rattle' :)
