Derek Foster's pride and joy, a Hillman Minx convertable. It was taken in 1967 outside No.10. The lads are Derek Foster (passenger seat), John Shepherd (driving seat) and young John Scully in the back.

Love the pic. My dad had a Morris Minor like the other car on this photo.Didn't all the cars have their own 'sound' of their engine. I could tell what car it was just from hearing it.

I remember Derek, Noj and the car complete with twin aerials and bumperless ( very racy ). What is very sad is that only a few years later Derek was dead. Great loss.
