    I might have posted some of these videos before but can’t remember which .. so what the heck it’s a canter thorough some Earl’s Court roadshows. These little films were shown in movie cinemas alongside main feature movie for folks unable to attend in person. Very much of their era

    For 356 fans a short appearance

    Some nice footage of car production plants on the 1965 show; Porsche not featured which is a pity as think early 911 was there.

    Very brief view of 912 66 show

    67 a brief glimpse of a Porsche if can bear watching clip with its patronising sexist voice over

    Pity the merely launched Carrera RS that was at the show didn’t feature

    For 73

    Fast forward to 1974 including the delights of a luxury Vanden Plas edition of the Algro

    Are they example of very rare early RHD lights? Bosch 7045 are RHD — if so coincidentally photographed one that I retrieved from my storage today it is is date coded on sticker on reverse mid sixties survivor.

    Ones on car might be the bit more common LHD version of that era?
    If only we had an optometrist here who also knew about early RHD 911 lenses
