I didn't get chance to snap everything we saw while away, but here are the vehicle-related spots I did manage to grab.

The Scammell, the rare Volvo 142S, and the Singer Chamois, were in the car park of a station used by a preserved steam railway, as were the Morris lorries and the old petrol pump.

The decaying Austins were seen at a garage which is also home to a marque specialist.

Thanks for the photos, Rick.

I first saw that style Scammell as a model associated with model railways. At the time, I wondered if it was a model of an actual vehicle as I don't think that any came to Oz, and I had not seen one before.

Do you know if there are many still in captivity, or is this the only one?

Hi Dane, there are a few around, they turn up quite often at steam & vintage rallies.

Large steam roller, with coal trailer and living van in tow, just rumbled by. Quite a few old lorries have been past today also, probably from the Onslow Park steam/vintage rally that took place over the weekend.

I noticed on the red Morris Minor van "Bourton on the Water" as signage.

Did you get the opportunity to visit the motor museum there?
The last time I did was in September 1980.
It really is a beautiful village.

Three sightings today :
An "F" registered Vanden Plas 1100 in Trafalgar blue near Betws y Coed.

Second was a silver coloured Jaguar Mark 2 on the back of a transporter taking the turn off for a village about ten miles away.
I know of all the classic Jaguars within a 20 mile radius and this one was new to me. I will find out more.

The third was a very well restored late Land Rover Series 2a 109" in Bronze Green near Llandudno.

Hi Ellis

Yes we visited the museum - what a place!!! my folks went years ago when (apparently) there was just the one main room. Now it goes on for several rooms, I can't recommend the place enough, well worth a visit. I took a ruck of photos, I've not had time to go through them as yet though (relief to many I expect!!! Smile)

Followed by a smart red GT6 Mk3 today, saw the local Minor ragtop driving along, and spotted a couple of Mk2 Escort rally cars plus a few other bits n bobs outside a nearby garage. There also appears to be a part-dismantled Bristol in the undergrowth behind the premises. One day I'll stop when it's quiet for a closer look (for Penman).

Hi
Tewksbury garage around 13:00 a green L reg Mk1 Granada GLX, on the M5 or M6, on a trailer, a Farina MG Magnette in Red over Green but with a couple of lightly brushed Blue panels also saw a mini Riley or Wolseley body as what looked like a grass track racer.

Driving south through the Scottish borders this afternoon. Nice 1930's le Mans Bentley, Jag XK 120, something that looked like a 'breathed on' Austin 7 with boat tail, several TR's and others I have forgotten. There is a good Borders show on this weekend,

Last Friday, as he's still on school holiday, I took junior to Oulton Park again as it was another test day.

There were quite a few MGs in attendance, practicing for the upcoming series of marque races, plus a few other stragglers including a marvellous E-Type Lightweight rep that was undertaking a few shakedown tests prior to the Revival next weekend. Current BTCC champ Gordon Shedden was at the wheel.

Chap in a pale blue Herald convertible waved as we drove by in the Moggy today.
