The Sweeney’s doing ninety……





Always been a bit envious of these Europeans that seem to have piles of old cars in and around wooded countryside to photograph. I stumbled across this old Vanguard Standard on my walk through the country today along with a couple of old tractors one of which had the old hand crank starting mechanism.

I don’t think the Sweeney ever did ninety in one of these it was probably a Ford Granada or a Cortina usually pursuing a villain in a Jaguar S Type around old London town.
Some viewers from outside the UK might be thinking “Who the **** are the Sweeney?” Well they were Regan and Carter from a time when men were men and didn’t have any breakfast!
