Close Encounters at the Industrial Museum 5
It was the colour of this vintage car that attracted me, such a glorious acid yellow. They don't seem to make many brightly coloured cars these days - white or silver seem the favoured shades round here, or black of course. 'You can have any colour as long as it's black'! Jowett was a small manufacturer of cars and light commercial vehicles, based in Bradford, from 1906 to 1954. The Industrial Museum has several examples. They started by making cycles and motorbikes but then began producing innovative 'light' cars that were suitable for the very hilly terrain around this area.
