Miss­ing the wider point

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - The Way We Were, ❚ Richard Bar­nett, Car­marthen­shire

I feel Richard Gunn missed the point with the green Ford Anglia and its ab­sent hub­cap in his oth­er­wise ex­cel­lent 1972 mid-Wales-based

CCW, 26 July. The wheel is a wider than stan­dard 5½J type, so rather than as­sum­ing the lack of a hub­cap was the re­sult of theft or an ac­ci­dent, the more likely ex­pla­na­tion is that this 105E was owned by a mem­ber of a lo­cal mo­tor club – of which there are still many in Wales – and had been mod­i­fied.
