• Short Summary

    Quirky item about a vintage car enthusiast that takes his dog motoring wearing goggles.

  • Description

    Ringwood, Hampshire.

    William Nicholson is a vintage car enthusiast that likes to take his Dutch Barge Dog motoring with him.

    Various shots of Mr. N. polishing an old 1928 4.5 Litre Bentley, one of a row of vintage cars. Mr. N. opens a bonnet to clean the motor of a Hispano Suiza. C/U of a hand carved stork on top of a radiator.

    M/S of vintage car, pan to Mrs. N sitting nearby, sewing a hat. She places the hat on her dog. Mrs. N leads the dog to the car, a 1928 Bentley. Mr. N. is sitting in the driving seat. Mrs. N places some goggles over the dog's head. Mrs. N waves to her husband and dog as they drive off. Various shots of Mr N. and his dog speeding down country lane. C/U of the dog in goggles and a hat (he wears them to so he doesn't get cold ears and runny eyes).

    The dog is a Keeshund, otherwise known as a Dutch barge dog (looks a bit like Lassie).

    Other cars featured are - a 1947 Silver Wraith Rolls Royce, 1930 Speed 6 Bentley and a 1927 A.C.G. (sp?).

    Quirky / sentimental item, typical Colour Pic material!

    Cuts exist - please see separate record.

    The car being polished is a 1928 4.5 Litre Bentley.

    The car seen on the far right in the first shot is a 1930 6.5 Litre Bentley.

    "Hispano Sura" should read Hispano Suiza.

    "hand carved stalk" should read hand carved stork. (Note that the stork is the mascot of Hispano Suiza).

    The dog is a Dutch Barge Dog, though the breed is now formally known as Keeshond.
