Morris Marina in Newport this morning, looked in good nick but painted in what I can only describe as vomit colour. I don't know a lot about them but it had the appearance of a base model with single headlamps in a front end that appeared to be designed for two, if that makes sense?

Spotted a red MG A on my way home today, and a little while ago a green over black tourer that I suspect was an Austin Ten tourer (I had thought it was a Fourteen or Sixteen until I checked some images online, it looked much more like a Ten).

I did get a picture of what I believe is a Seven and this may be the one I captured on dashcam, back when I had one of those.

I spotted a red TR6 on my way to work this morning out in the sunshine.

Apart from the occasional Morgan (which doesn't count), I've seen very few interesting old vehicles out and about of late.

A Model T speedster (I don't think it's the one I've seen around here a few times) just went by.

Hi
Saw a turquoise "yank tank" on the M60/M66 junct, Simister Island, Rbt this morning
It crossed in front of me as I was approaching down the off slip to the r/bt so I only had a side-on view
It was from the tail fin era but I can't find it in any of my books.
The fins were quite high, looked vertical not splayed outwards and had a definite convex curved leading edge starting around where the back of the rear window was.

Any suggestions?

Penman. From your description I would guess a '57 to '60 Plymouth. or maybe an early sixties Cadillac although the fins on those tended to be rather lower

Sat outside the factory at lunchtime soaking up the sun and a lowloader drives past with a rough looking AEC Militant on the back, not something you see everyday.

I'd just pulled up at traffic lights in Chesterfield this afternoon when I heard a 'snarl' behind me and saw the back end of a Lancia Stratos disappearing from view.

I looked forward again to see a green Morris Traveller approaching - polar opposites!

A couple of interesting spots in Cwmbran this afternoon. First was a tidy red Triumph Stag queuing at one of the many roundabouts, from the sound as it pulled away I reckon it had an auto 'box, not exactly unusual on these though.

The second was more a "sign of the times" than anything classic related, but I haven't seen one before. You'll all be familiar with the coin-operated children's rides seen around shopping areas - some are based well-known characters from popular TV shows but others are more generic like buses or police cars. Well, today I saw one with the body moulding made to look like the recycling collection trucks that are always holding the traffic up, that's a new one... Laughing

A small convoy of Jowetts - multiple Javelins, a Jupiter, the line-up headed by a lone Bradford, just went by.

We were at a local show yesterday and we saw a really nice original Jowett Bradford pick-up, totally untouched it attracted a lot of interest.

There was a Jowett club stand at Llangollen on Saturday, I wonder if they made a weekend of it and are heading home now?
