Hi
I presume the 2nd one up (the blue one) is a GM product, it looks like our Vauxhall Victor FA series 2 but with an uglier grill and side lights.

The little "Vauxhall" is actually a Canada only export called an Envoy Special. I was given it in 2000 when it had 8000 miles on the odometer, I then proceeded to use it as a daily driver for that summer, clocking another 8000 miles. I wound up selling it to a friend for $500 and his old car, a nice 1970 Ford LTD.

Look a Chevette Special edition , you dont see many of the brown ones but you do see plenty of the Green ones ( like this one of mine used as a spares recovery machine )



and never see the Blue ones.

Here's an old coach that we saw in Suffolk a few years ago. I thought that it would make an interesting camper project but the Mrs thought otherwise!

Received just now, two photos of a very forlorn 1100 in a Somerset scrappy




There may be some useful bits there, the yard is in Henstridge apparently.

Not a classic in sight; but I wondered if the fact that the Scottish Island of Lismore, where the requirement for an annual MOT is waived so long as the car is taxed and insured, might mean an increased liklihood of abandoned classics being found there? All of these cars parked at the ferry are in a public area and are probably used for the commute back to peoples' homes.
