its not a jetta as the car in the picture has a metal bumper jettas cam with plastic bumpers

as the picture showsand the white car behind it is an austin allegro!

note the back window shape!

Are we looking at the same red car, Monsta, the one in the top picture of the two on the right heading towards the camera? Blow it up - it has a VW badge. The second picture is taken around the same time from a different angle and shows the car partly obscured by the red one - the white one parked on the road - to be a Mini Metro.

Malcolm - in the original picture the silver car on the left is, I think, a Datsun, one of the bigger Bluebird line from the late 70's, and the red car on the right could be a Chrysler Horizon.

Also if it is more blue than silver, it certainly doesn't look metallic to me, it would seem to be a pastel shade dating it to the 60's very early 70's.

The red one looks like Flamenco Red to me a popular Layland colour.

I never thought this would be a place for 'identify the awful 70's/80's car' discussions but hey, what's a little variety in life? I'm quite sure the blue/silver car is a Datsun, one of the myriad of clunking big models they made in the 70's and early 80's, and if that's not a Horizon, is it the other little hatch they made, wa sit called Sumbeam? Same sort of shape.

ps - an expert on Leyland paint colours - now that is something!!

Datsun Skylines & Cedrics etc had different fronts.........

140J/160J's had different bumpers.

Early Bluebirds had different fronts with corner indicators.

Its a 2/4 door saloon with a rubbish colour so deffo Ford or BL! Datsun's also had better colours.

If we are agreeing to around 1975ish it has to be a 68-74 car?

Can you see indicators at the side of the headlights?

Yes! On the bigger car, I still think it's a Japanese barge of some sort.

Thought we were at crossed wires there Monsta; you reckon that earlier one is a Samba? Could be, I was thinking Horizon or Sunbeam as discussed. Neither is a Veyron anyway!

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
