"Old UK cars taken with D3200"


Farnham, GB
          

Hi we went to a local country show yesterday in Farnham, Surrey, UK.

i took some shots with my D3200 of some of the cars on show, all are pre 1945 + one Cadillac Deville standing all by itself.

i don't know anything about the Deville, but i presume it is a 50's car? someone will put me right.

NIce photos!

The Caddy is mid 1970s. My guess is 1976.

See what do i know, i did not realise that such large cars were still being made in the 70's?

i suppose because we never really had any to begin with, which is not surprising seeing what we have to pay for fuel, but that's another subject & i wont go there.

Hi Jeremy,

Nice series,
Thanks for sharing.
Most American Cars did not start downsizing until about 1978 or 1979.
Even then the DeVilles continued to be large cars.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

The price of gas got out of hand, so by 1976 it was a whopping 61 cents per gallon.

Here is a picture of the new, downsized 2011 Deville, and as Marty said, it is a lot smaller and more economical

Back then Cadillacs, Lincoln Mark Series and Town cars. Were only in Price range of people that had deep enough it didn't make any difference what gas cost. And even today to buy a Lincoln Towne Car, the price is only in the range of people that gas prices don't matter. Some Cadillacs are getting closer the price for people that can't afford the gas to put in them.

BTW great pictures Make me wish I had a way to swap my D3000 body for a D3200 Body. don't need the lens.

you should live in the UK, then you would really complain about fuel prices, current price is $2.05 & it has just dropped from $2.36

some parts of the country are even higher especially central london.

Sorry when i gave the UK fuel prices i forgot that you price by the gallon & we price by the litre, so if you convert the prices i gave it works out to: $9.32 a gallon at todays prices

Looks like it was fun! Nice pictures. I was more impressed with the other cars since I see Caddies all the time.

from what I understand, if you take the tax away from the fuel price, UK prices are actually cheaper. Supposedly UK gets more services out of the tax paid. My understanding anyway... could be wrong.
Currently USA pays about 18 cents per gallon in taxes, UK has a duty rate plus 20% value added tax.

Ah.. the grass is always greener

If you take all the taxes off our fuel prices, we'd probably be paid to drive.

We pay about £1.25 per litre at the pump for unleaded petrol. About 2/3 of that is tax and duty, paid straight to the government. Not a lot of that goes to maintain our road system. Taking the tax away is not a choice; we pay tax at the pump or we walk.

A litre is a little more than 1/4 of a US Gallon, by the way. So it looks like we pay duty and tax of about $4(US) per US gallon.
