Wolseley at SSAFA Car Show

This Wolseley took part in the SSAFA Car Show at Ewen Fields on 19 Oct 2014.
It's a 1936 Wolseley Wasp with a 1069cc engine, a car which was produced for just 2 years in 1935 and 1936. The fact that it's got a number plate with black letters on a white background (which has been mandatory for new cars since 1973) is odd. Cars first registered prior to 1973 are allowed to still have the old white (or silver) letters on a black background. The rear number plate is also of the newer black letters on a yellow background type. It looks, though, that the number plate has been fastened over the original number plate, possibly for use when it's being driven on today's roads. The 'JL' in the registration number, by the way, says that the car was first registered in Boston, Lincolnshire.
