On Saturday a dark green Mark I Zephyr powered past our place with the proper loud exhaust and all the accessories including spats.

This was in front of me earlier today. I know its owner, but he doesn't know my daily car.

There was a j reg red Land Crab parked at Hopwood Park MSA last Sunday pm. It looked a well-used car, not a spit and polished show-piece.
It was parked between two modern Golfs, ,and looked tiny!

Interesting find, I wonder what the Bentley will make and will it retain that body, or see its coachwork replaced?


I watched some of the auction on-line this afternoon, the Bentley sold for 395,000 before fees.

Hi
It's a genuine '55 reg import from Brazil. where and who did the conversion I don't know.
Apparently it's currently dead, someone fried the ECU jump starting it.

By '55 you mean 1955? That cannot be correct as this is a much later model (VW T2, from 1967 onwards).

I took that as a UK '55' registration, issued in the later part of 2005 or the early part of 2006.

My thoughts too. A 1955 vehicle wouldn't have an ECU unless heavily modded!

Hi Folks

Yes I did mean a 2005/6 55 reg.


Today, in Matlock, there was a Citroen Ami 8 in cream on an "L" suffix reg.
