I bet those Anglias were hard to get going, too!
I had two of them and, if they didn't start by the second attempt, that was it - a flooded carburetor!!
Had to wait for ages ...........

I remember the Anglias well, the Police had them for Panda cars for a bit. Now, according to H. Potter they fly!

Great image

This has all to do with Sweden switching from driving on the left-hand side of the road to the right in 1967.
So there is not hope in GB to get a same Forest !!!GrinGrinGrin

Excellent work, Bill.

I once knew of a young lady who's parking skills wouldn't have looked out of place there.Smile

Looks like they have been piled up in a forest setting: the vegetation is gradually hiding them from view but not yet from your all seeking lens, Bill.
