Mk1 Zephyr Six 1952

This old pic turned up recently.
I was amazed. This was my old car and our old house back in the 60"s.
I had a love hate relationship with this car. Mostly the latter.
I ended up modifying the engine, exhaust system and changed the column shift to floor shift.
I learnt a lot about engines, vacuum wipers, broken axels, dim head lights (that I boosted with a relay), rust, leaking oil gaskets and leaking frost plugs. Then there were the bigger issues of valves burning out, big ends needing attention and the list goes on.
As you can see this is the exact place I had to work on this bloody thing and others that followed.
Nothing undercover and a shitty old car port with a dirt floor.
Looking back, just such a great experience. No money, no tools but give it a go....
