The Pre-War Riley Car Paint Stripped Down to Metal



As we were finishing our bin loading round on Wednesday 20th April 2016, we came out of the village of Wimblington into the village of Doddingtopn in the Fenland of Cambridgeshire. It was a glorious day and we had been out in the rural parts of the land. We were content and feeling happy as the last bin went in the lorries' bin lifts. 


We decided to pull into a small lay by further up the road as one enters the village of Doddington. There on the drive of a cottage was parked a pre-war open topped Riley car. It was stripped of paint work and I suppose the owner was midway through a restoration of the beautiful looking motor.


I had a walk around it and took a few shot on the mobile phone camera. See what you think of the old Riley car?
