Wim, Like this Cadillac?
The Dodge, I purchased in 1964 cost 250 pounds sterling. A small fortune. I could have bought a cottage on the West coast of Ireland with that sum! It would be worth 500,000 Euros now. Young and foolish
American cars were very rare in England back then. Except for Oxford Street in Manchester when the American Airforce guys from their base near Warrington came to town at the weekends. Then we would see Thunderbirds, Buicks, Chevs, Oldsmobiles, Fairlanes, and yes, Cadillacs to drool over
American military police were hard on Americans who got drunk and disorderly. Very hard indeed. At 14 a pal and me sold "The Empire News" Sunday newspaper in pubs late on a saturday night. (Remember that paper Colin?) We got a ha'penny a copy commission.
Yes I know what you mean about B17s. We watched the atom bombers taking off from Burtonwood AAF Base!
