Took the Hillman to a local show today, lots of nice cars about. We had to stop Tesco on the way home and we were joined by some E Types, a Triumph Vitesse and a small Healey!

A very smart Moggy 1000, spotted shortly after the pre-war Daimler drove by.

On the way back from Oulton Park on Sunday, I spotted a steam traction engine down one of the back lanes near the circuit, which was a bit of a surprise.

A steamroller is just going by, in the livery of Bridgwater Council - he must be lost!! Also saw the local A7 Ruby in town today.

While the others were admiring some large stones, I spotted this Bentley T2 passing by on the A303.

Whilst parked in Nantwich Rd Crewe today waiting to pick my daughter up, this Sentinel Steam wagon drove past at a very respectable pace, fortunately I had my phone to hand.

Was that pulling two vans behind it? I saw one this afternoon between Nantwich and Crewe, in the chaos that came from the by-pass being closed.

Spotted the Lancaster as it flew over on Saturday.

Yes that sounds like the same one Mike. I hadn't realised that the bypass was shut, but it explains it being so busy.

They re-surfaced it last week over a few nights, and I think the closure yesterday was probably to get the lines back on.



Closest I could get, unfortunately.

In Jersey for a few days, have seen plenty of expensive classics but the one that stood out today was a very tidy little blue Riley Elf.

I am currently in Poland and saw a gorgeous scruffy, beaten-up yellow Trabby just inside the border with Germany.

Passed a lovely Jersey Bedford O Type this morning, carrying lots of people up in the back on a day trip.
