    Another Zenith SLR ex owner but that wasnt until about 1981, in 79 i still had a crappy 110 camera (with built in flash!!!).
    1979 -
    My Brother in Law and Sister took me to my first Custom Car show at Alexandra Palace
    My Dad traded his useless unreliable one year old S reg British leyland Austin Maxi 1750HL in for a shiny new T reg Mitsubishi Sigma 2000.
    and i went on a school trip living and travelling round on a converted barge in Holland. Against my better judgement heres a photo of me taken on said barge...
