Hi

A Veyron ay?

You should have told me about the frazer, I would have soon been down there!

I saw a Bentley, chassis and body, no wheels on a teailer, what looked like a Mk6, with a big back end!

I have just been on a Quadbike and think I have got whiplash, we very nearly rolled it! We were going along, when we saw a large dip, to late, to fast, quad went down and up, about 2 foot of the ground, and bang, though my neck had broken. Ended up sliding towards and just missing an electric fence. Good fun though!! One real bad head now though!

Sorry drifted a little there!

Cheers

Dave

Hi

I saw an MG today, not sure on the model but quite old, and a classic car, that I won't even try to guess the name off, still it was old! Laughing

Cheers

brown eh, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm nice Wink

Only sightings today were a light yellow MGB GT, a yellow Beetle in Nantwich, and a Reliant Scimitar Coupe plus an NSU Ro80 that both live in driveways not too far from here.

A couple of days ago I was driving along the A500 in terrible weather, when I spied a white Stag driving the other way in the spray towards the M6 - was that you ukdave??

During a tour of the Lotus factory at Hethel on fathers day.

A rear profile over the other side of the building I didn't recognise.

When asked, the guide would not talk about it it's a project car. Cool Shocked

Saw a cream Volvo 120 in Crewe the other day, and spied a lovely Riley Ulster parked (in the rain) near a pub in Whitchurch. A pair of very vintage tourers zipped past the house t'other evening, but didn't get chance to see what they were - probably late 20s at a guess

That's a bit young, isn't it?

How do they afford the insurance?

Talking of Volvos, came back from picking my daughter up from nursery yesterday and found this parked on the drive:





Me thinks the husband has been spending too much time on that Retro-rides forum! To be fair he did have a nasty accident on Monday and wrote off the 3 year Fiat we had and needs something to get around and that will tow the Safari. (Mike is safe, he cut his head and is now a bit sore. Thank god the children weren't in the car at the time, as the rear end of the Stilo took all the impact in the crash that he had)

Saw these when I was a show in Corbridge, near Hexham last week.

I've never seen this version, which to seems to be an attempt at updating of the old Scammell tractor units, pehaps the final incantation of its type -



And this very unusual and spotless Trojan van -

giggles, sorry to hear about the shunt - the Volvo looks smart enough, is it a keeper or just to tide you over til the Humber is ok again?

scotty, nope not seen an Atki like that before either - can't be too many of them around..
