Boy Standing By His Family's First Car 1961

About this memory

Len Purves.

“Our first car – a green Ford Popular. The indicator lights made it look like a dalek.

“Once we were in an accident. We were turning right and it was a sunny day and the driver behind didn’t see our indicators and when we turned right he crashed into us.” – Len Purves
