Tudor, do you know where that picture of the A and the VW was taken. Looks like either NZ or here in Australia to me. RHD cars, MKII series 1 Zephyr on the left and what looks like an FJ behind the A. Police uniform and "Bus Stop" sign confirm, IMO.
Did anybody notice the exhaust hanging down on the A? Torn loose in the collision?

Somewhere in one of my Model A books I have a picture of a pile of firewalls which were slated to be re-stamped. I will hopefully find it and post.
BTW Synchro909 the car is now in Perth Au.
