Elm Green, 1302S Beetle, what a beaut, WOC 507J

 

Elm Green ? my Grandad had a green beetle which I think was more like BRG than your green, not lucky enough to drive it but remember the clutch pedal came up through the floor, is that correct ?. He had another before that pale blue split screen UHL 650, amazing !

In my experience....(growing up in the 70's)...1st pic is Holden Torana..My Father had one years ago...(Terrible car)...:lol:

2nd pic is Vauxhall Viva = Even more terrible car...:lol:

Probably quality cars in the 70's....:wacko:....I didn't like them then and certainly don't like them now...:wink:

But do bring back a lot of memories...:).....(hated car colours back then too)

Hmm, I'm guessing you didn't have much to to with the very-much-not-lamented Morris/Leyland Marina then, or you may have revised your opinions (upwards).  I remember driving a near new one for work and being unpleasantly surprised at just how bad the handling was (and I was only driving gently).  Truly an unpolished turd of epic proportions !!!

That reminds me, I bought my dad's Morris Ital off him at one point....I didn't keep it long 😂
