1965 Sunbeam Minx.

Seeing this car around the neighborhood last summer was the original kernel of inspiration for Old Parked Cars, but by the time we got things rolling in December, the two-tone gem had long since vanished into winter storage. Its curbside appearance yesterday heralds the arrival of Spring and many long months of prime Portland car-watching. Happy Day.

The Minx vanished some weeks ago. Is it on Michigan pavement now?
