Here's a 1963 short video made about the veteran car hobby in England.

"Some of the cars are worth up to 1000 pounds!" ;)

The narrator is Raymond Baxter. He was a former WW2 Spitfire pilot, rally driver (Rootes factory team), and TV host.

21 Litre displacement, a 11 MPG. :shock:

Some excellent sport coats, hats, and mustaches in there. Really neat to see London in that era. Great find Nial!
