I was recently surprised to receive an email asking about one of the airplanes I’ve owned over the years. Seems the fellow had turned up a picture of the Temco-Riley D-16(A) Twin-Navion I had owned, and had gone one to “Google me Down.”
I had forgotten that hosted on one of my friend’s website a number of pictures lived on:
The pages are hosted on Blair Anderson’s “The Citroen Connection” in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada.
There have been quite a few others – a Citroen XM sedan, several Norton Commando Motorcycles, a Laverda Jota motorcycle, Morris Minors, Austin Mini Clubman, Austin Vanden Plas Princess, a Mini Metro Vanden Plas, a Citroen HY-Van, several more Panhard PL-17/17bt cars, Land Rovers, several VWs & Volvos, some 1950’s hot rod iron, and I am certain a few I just haven’t remembered as I type.
The years have seen all of these vehicles go to other collectors, drivers, & pilots. At least on ended up in a museum. Have kept a Peugeot 504D and my trusty BMW K100LT motorcycle around.
The pictures brought back memories – that CX2400 Pallas was a fantastic Autobahn car wit a lovely sweet spot at 115 mph cruising. The Panhard PL-17 was a perfect car for a grad student on a budget as it always started and was so very frugal.
