They look like reverse rims, not S rims. I agree, the whole pic has an Aussie feel to it.

Horrendous crash though. If anyone got out alive then they were very, very lucky.

Spectator meets Lucien Bianchi Citroen near Nowra NSW 68 London to Sydney.

Mini driver suffered a lacerated hand when the wood steering wheel broke up... I think the passenger for a sprained ankle or somesuch. Citroen navigator didn't do so well....

Cheers, Ian

......and an OO registered mini. Is OO a Kent reg number? If so, it's a long way from home! Could it be a Police Panda in that powder blue?

OO is not only a model railway gauge it is also an Essex registration identifier issued from Chelmsford in period. Check out images of the local works team cars of the period which were prepared in Boredom just along the road from Chelmsford before Stuart went rear wheel drive! :D

But wherever it is, it's a LONG way from Jockland. Nice photo though.
