Three Frazer Nash cars

Today my wife and I went to RSPB Minsmere in Suffolk. After parking the car I spotted these 3 splendid Frazer Nash cars - as far as I can tell from Wikipedia, the nearest one is from approx. 1933, and I guess that the other 2 are of a similar age.







The older I get, the better I was...

How's this for co-incidence.

Back in early 80's, my father had a client whose husband was called Barry Keith Housemayne de Boulay who had been a stuntman in previous years. From him I was given my first car - 1956 oval window Beetle in 1982.

Go forward 7 or 8 years and I started motorcycling, since when I have been very good friends with former m/c chief instructor called Don.

Now, ever since I've known Don, he's gone on about a Frazer Nash he owned back in the 50's or 60's. Go forward another 25 ish years and Don emails a (iirc) Frazer Nash newsletter giving details about the very car he owned, and guess who he bought it from, and who was mentioned in the newsletter. One Barry de Boulay.

The car had just sold for about a million and a half of those English Pounds
