Greek Men and Their Weird Cars No. 3
This old Ford Anglia sits on the forecourt of my brother’s garage. His friend Nick, a car bodywork master craftsman, is refurbishing it. Nick can make any car look like it was built yesterday. Ford Anglias, with their strange, swept-back rear windows remind me of my uncle Michael, who had one of these for years. It was a bit of a heap, but he loved it. He’d turn up at our house in it and then he and my dad would go into the kitchen and speak Greek and smoke for hours. Seems funny that my uncle’s dodgy old motor has become a classic car.
