By this time in my adventure down in Old Car City USA, my good camera had run out of batteries. Hence the potato pics of one of the more remarkable residents of the junkyard.

As you can see, this particular Anglia is too far gone to bring back (looking at you, David Tracy), but what caught my eye in this picture was the strange little wagon it rests on. Oppo, can you identify this little family hauler? This incomplete badge was on the back of it, and I could find no other inscriptions. If it helps, this was in the imports section. So what’s your guess?
