1970s Shell Sport holdalls back on the market


If you want to carry a piece of the 1970s around with you, may we suggest these reissued Shell Sport holdalls?

Originally produced by the company throughout the 1970s, the bags are available in various colours (one pictured above, another over the page), made of PVC, with an inside zip pocket and a 'heavy' metal zip for closure.

The price has probably gone up from the 70s, but it's still affordable at £42.

eBay watch: Early 60s Jaguar Mk II car


Ever fancied yourself as a villain in a 1960s British crime flick? We have the car for you – this Jaguar Mk II.

Dating back to 1963, the hefty chunk of tax-exempt metal on offer packs a 3400cc engine, guaranteeing that quick getaway should you need one. It's also got plenty of authenticity, judging by the photos on the site, which could mean you'll need to do a bit of work to maintain and renovate it if you want it as a show car.

But on the plus side, it's only had two owners from new, it is 'up and running' and right now, it isn't going to set you back much cash. The current price is £1,551. See the listing for the full technical breakdown.
