It was worth the $5 fee to have a look around the car museum in Gembrook.
I think this is a Daimler. It appears to be automatic but still has three pedals. I have seen one like it many years ago and I wrote to the Daimler Car Club for an explanation of the gear system and I received an informative reply. The letter is filed away....somewhere, and the explanation is filed away in my memory.....somewhere.
No need to guess the make of this one. Very nice.
This is a Studebaker. I recall the sixties models that were nice enough, but nothing really special. You will agree, this one is special.
I have never noticed such special car lights before. So pretty.
I am not old enough to have used such a petrol pump. Anyone know how they worked? Fill the glass tank with a hand pump, set the slide to the quantity required, then let it drain into the tank?
One pound, two and six. Ka ching. I have operated cash registers like this. They were fun and often beautifully made. This one may not have been. It looks a bit on the cheap side. You could kind of preselect the keys before you fully pushed them down. They did not add up. You had to do that in your head. I think that is the inside of a petrol pump next to the register.
I did not get time to look at this properly. It appeared to be bound copies of the Sydney Morning Herald. It was huge, spanning over one metre.
