Classic cars at the Coventry Transport Museum

I was surprised at the number of car brands that once came out of Coventry. This include Alvis, Calcott, Daimler, Jaguar, Lea Francis, Humber, Hillman, Sunbeam, Standard, Swift and Triumph.

Out of all, only Jaguar remains and is still producing cars here.


Barbie's Jaguar.


A day out a long time ago.


The Lotus concept car. Designed by a Coventry University student.


Jaguar concept.


Classic motorbikes.


The Penny Farthing bike. It must have taken an effort to climb this bike even before riding it.


Do you recognise this futuristic looking car with a stainless steel body. Unfortunately it didn't sell and the company went bust.
