A great find! - difficult to tell what series it is! - and I wonder what the car club badge is?!

B10

I think the windscreen surround is pre-4th Series, and the circular headlights would thus 'bracket' this as 3rd Series (if I'm right about the 'screen surround).

The point about the windscreen surround seems to be a good one.

The point about the website from which this lovely photo was extracted is to show the amazing quality and subtlety of images achieved from a particular Nikon Nikkor lens used in earlier times with film rather than digital cameras. Nowadays we take lenses for granted and by and large cease to worry about such things. It is difficult to define the characteristics of particular lenses and I used to be sceptical about the claims that were made. Leica lenses were thought to be particularly crisp in their rendition of detail.

However, I inherited one of the late Roger Perry’s Leicas, which I still treasure. The photo below is a scan of a print of my B20 taken with the Leica in 1993 using black & white film. I make no great claims for the photo, but was amazed at the crispness and character of the image, which makes the photo look like a press shot from almost forty years earlier. I don’t understand how it can be, but it seems to be true.

I have admired Ashley Border's work for some time now. Super stuff!

A different approach (I assume it's a B20!)

Jim said he had been doing something a little different, do you think it will affect its value ?

There are some weird lenses out there, personally, I do not understand their attraction.

The photo of the B20 is superb and twice the size on the original website.  I think I agree about 3rd series, although it might be an early 4th series.  The air vent trims, which I have been studying recently, I believe are for 3rd and very early 4th.

ANOTHER of the great things about a B20 is the sense of security it gives you - a tough old box...
