More Vintage Cars & Berets

A lady wearing a Basque beret and spectacles posing in the driver's seat of a Fiat Topolino. The location is a cobbled country road somewhere in northern Germany. A couple of farmhouses with thatched roofs are visible in the background. The car is equipped with a radiator grille cover.

Two ladies in fur coats posing with a rare Austro-Daimler saloon on a bleak winter's day. Note the unusual wing-mounted indicators and the pair of windshield defrosters, so-called Sleetchasers. The car is registered in the city of Vienna

A lady wearing a white dress and a Basque beret and a fellow in a white shirt posing with an Opel in the countryside. The car is registered with pre-war German licence plates of the Prussian province of Silesia.

Vintage Cars & Berets

A fellow wearing a Basque beret and a raincoat posing with a Pontiac on an Alpine road. The location is Fuscher Törl at the top of Grossglockner High Alpine Road, as the words "Fuscher Törl, September 1952" – handwritten on reverse – explain. Is he really the owner of the Swiss-registered convertible, or just a passer-by posing with a prestigious car for fun?

A young lady posing with a BMW in an Alpine landscape. The following words in German are handwritten on reverse: "1938 – Zur Besichtigung nach Schellenbergalm bei Berchtesgaden" (1938 – visiting Schellenbergalm near Berchtesgaden). The car is registered in the city of Munich

A fellow with a Basque beret and a little white dog posing with a Fiat. Note that the car's radiator mascot has the form of a dog's head. The Art déco-style radiator grille with its radial bars also seems to be an aftermarket addition to the car. Could these be French licence plates from the Territoire de Belfort region?

 Yep, another year again. This time 58...

Still wearing my beret every day, rain or shine, hot or cold, happy or sad, some 45 years in a row now.

Come on, make my day and BUY A BERET!
