Feel free to have a natter about the current Old Film Challenge of 'Nostalgia'.

Good wide topic. Now to find that photo I'm sure I took.

The nostalgic bit...
I bought this 1947 Riley RMA 1 1/2 litre in 1967 for £25, the engine blew up after less than 1000 miles so I found a spare car, which cost £12, swapped engines and had a few months of driving pleasure before selling it in 1968 for £30 (profit), when I got married I got another £12 for the left over bits of the spare car, incredible!
Oh! to be 20 again.
Still have nightmares about the handling and braking system but it is a good looking beast, you must agree. Maximum speed maybe 80 mph on a good day.

The facts...
Halina 35X camera using Ilford FP3 and developed at home in an Enfield daylight tank, like the Agfa Rondinax job. Recently scanned.
Lovely photo, of course, but that nostalgia deserves to win on its own!
