Back to looking at life.
Good old Tim Turner gives us a jolly whiz around Ulsters then massive shipyards ( all sadly doomed ).
Film free to view on BFI.-

Plenty of 'Grey Porridge' cars of the proletariat plus a couple of foreigners .

Amazing thing is more than half the cars seen here are actually GREY (porridge cars of the proletariat) !

At some point in the future an academic type may do a learned monograph on exactly what constitutes grey porridge in an automotive sense, linking the social classification of the individual and the oatiness of his wheels. I would offer myself for research if considered suitable as I presently have a Mercédès and a Bentley, yet am obviously far to much of a scruff to aspire to either. The subject documentary, showing 1960s workers leaving a shipyard is interesting, in that while many of the cars have seen no little use, the nearly new Cambridge, and the Prefects are perhaps half a leg upwards, the Austin seemingly being the Manager on his way home. (Or perhaps a politician parked up in the city.)
