Great picture. I was raised in EK - was up there a few weeks ago and that part of the town centre is looking very neglected with the old Arnotts and the Stuart Hotel boarded up.

Hi Scottie,
just saw your pic.of your dads'Vauxhall Victor deluxe in the forum.
I think if it was white with a red roof and interior,he may have bought my dads'old car.Dad purchased the car new from McLeans garage and car dealers in the old village,and kept it for 2 or 3 years.I think there was only one like that in E.K.at that time.It was a lovely car with such happy family memories.
