Austin A35

I spotted this stunning little car in Bray, County Wicklow recently. It was parked along the seafront and everybody passing by stopped to admire it.
It was produced by Austin of England from the early 50's until the late 60's, first as the A30 and then as the A35. This one is beautifully restored and brightly painted and it's hard to believe that it's half a century old.
As regular readers will know I have a bit of an obsession about old cars, especially from this particular era and actually went to the Cinema last night to see the movie An Education because it was set in 1960's London. I was hoping to see some old cars and I was not disappointed - I even spotted an Austin A40.
p.s. It was actually a very good movie as well with an excellent performance from young English actress Carey Mulligan
p.p.s. I have just discovered the music of French singer Juliette Gréco whose songs featured in the movie

Wow, look at that minty green colour, that sure is not common to see on cars.;)

I thought I wanted a Morris Minor, but maybe I want one of these instead...
