Amilcar C4

I took this photograph in the Exchange Station car park in Manchester before the start of the Manchester to Blackpool Veteran and Vintage Car Run in May 1987.
It's a 1923 Amilcar C4, and the programme of the event said this about the car:

31      1923 Amilcar C4
          Reg: EL 1787  4 cylinder  8 hp
          (Mrs A M Park, Mirfield, Yorks)
Although Mrs Park is normally chauffeur-driven in this car when she winters in the Antibes, where she is a common sight on her promenade beat, she has driven it further north this year for this event, and to take part in the proposed "Twin Towers Tour" from Blackpool to Paris.

"Twin Towers" has, of course, had a darker connotation since the events of 11 September 2001.
