LAGONDA CLASSIC CAR
Going into the grocery store, we spied this classic car sitting in front. We and several others took pix and guessed what it was. A Jaguar? An Aston Martin? No one knew.
As I went inside, an elderly man came out and headed for it so of course, I turned around and followed him. He spoke with a British accent and told us the car had belonged to his father. Tags on it suggested he had brought it over from England which explained the steering wheel being on the right side (wrong side for us Americans!).
According to him, the car is a 1950 Lagonda. Lagonda was a sports car manufacturer in the UK bought by Aston Martin. This model has an engine made by Bentley. As he left the parking lot, it put-putted away!
