    Cover of aldi catalogue this week-403sw.jpg


    Fond memories for a number of us. For me twice A grey wagon of the family when I was under 10 and green wagon of my brother when I was in my late teens.

    Definitely a recent shot, carefully styled with period props. Nostalgia is a big industry.

    Pity it isn't an original equipment roof rack.

    A careful eye will also pick that it ain't a true restoration. Because lumps of bog are evident in front of the sill panel. And the chrome strip on the top of the sills and under the door is missing.

    Those are all "period correct" if the intention was to conjure up a 1960's beach scene. Even into the seventies there were some very scruffy cars on the road. I remember a friends mother's FC Holden Station Sedan virtually held together with bits of string, 5 kids loaded behind the back seat rattling down the Hume Hwy. Even professional "panel beaters" were fond of using masses of bog.

    Here are some pics of a scruffy Citroen playing the nostalgia card for Womens Weekly recently.

    (why is it not called the Women's Monthly? It is issued every 4 weeks.)

    Women s Day comes out weekly and the Women's Weekly comes out monthly, I don't understand it so I have always assumed it's a one of those things that us males don't understand

    Actually I think I know why It was a bit of a joke when the publishers were faced with that dilemma. My question was rhetorical.

    Those of os with grey hairs and long memories will be able to help you out.

    Women's Weekly was owned by the Packers and was a weekly issue through the 50's and 60's. It was so influential in those days as its readership encompassed more than half of all adult women, and surprisingly over a third of all adult males! That is a market coverage today's publications could only dream about. Imagine how much power that provided and it is no wonder that it could wield enormous influence with that readership (not to mention the Women's Weekly World Discovery Cruises - but they are another story). It was in large format (roughly the size of a tabloid paper) but by the 70's its mantle began to slip and circulation fell.

    This resulted in a reduction in size and then the move to monthly publication, under Ita Buttrose as I recall. I could be wrong in that. It also coincided with a change in attitudes (women's lib) and the shift in the Packer empire from Sir Frank to Kerry. (this resulted in amongst other things Cleo and Australian Playboy, err interesting bedfellows dare I say it).

    Woman Day ("there is a whole week of living in eery Woman's Day" was the jingle) was the main competitor to the Weekly in those days and lagged behind. It could not call itself a weekly as that was already taken but made a play on words with the jingle. In the 70's it rsuffered a decline as well but esisted the move to monthly publication so we end up with what we have today.

    I have often wondered why the magazines have not been done for misleading advertising, as the Women's Weekly is a monthly, the Women's Day is a weekly and surely if ever there was one that was misnamed it is New Idea which does not contain any!

    Here ends the history lesson (accuracy not guaranteed, but possibly as good as Wikipedia!!

    Hey! I am an old fart too!

    But Woman's Monthly had some other connotations.

    I don't reckon the model is too scruffy, nor the Citroen for that matter. Perhaps with age, my standards have dropped?

    More presentable than some of TV knicker ad models. Passes muster with me.

    Don't question driving ability or you are likely to be penalized.

    Her nostrils are flaring slightly at the unfamiliar scent of LHM.

    Ahh the 403 wagon...my first car ( and second one too come to think of it).

    Always searching for more grunt to move the 23 cwt ..but the cornering was magic!

    My old man had a 403 milk cart. I learned to drive on that vehicle. Also learnt that on a hill start, its makes good sense to gently let out the clutch, rather than drop it and loose a crate of glass milk bottles. (wakes the neighbourhood at 3:30am).
