....Oh they're all cars

A little while back stages 4 and 5 of Coomera Retreat appeared on Google Maps.  I was checking out all the surrounding street names and then it clicked, hang on, there are a lot of car names here.  It turns out that all the names are either a make of car, or a car related term, or something before the car... like Coach Way. 

I had never heard of a Wolseley though, so Wikipedia helped me out, and I discovered the Wolseley Motor Company.  Read the Wiki if you want the whole long winded story but the company was formed in 1901, so we're talking old cars!  I don't mind the badge though,  I could almost picture the badges of the different car makers being used on those big wall style street name signs you see in some estates.


  1. And I will show my age and say I have heard of Wolseley - in fact I think my Dad had one for a while, before I was born of course.

  2. Come clean Loz, it was your first car, wasn't it???

  3. Probably not such a bad thing to admit to Loz... they were around till 1975 apparently.
