Seen yesterday, a wartime Kubelwagen. According to its owner it has a genuine WW2 chassis and body (not repro).

I passed a lovely two-tone Sunbeam-Talbot 90 saloon this morning on my way to work. Haven't seen it before locally but it looked very tidy.

Hi
Motoring "Garden Art" hits the RHS at the Chelsea Flower Show
A Matchless engined Morgan complete with birds nest, but it does actually look like a runner.
35:13mins in

There is also a 50's Triumph M/cycle in the 41st min, in a garden from a Japanese designer.

Two "H" suffix cars seen in town this evening, an early Mk3 Mini, and a VW-powered beach buggy.

Lots about on the roads these last few days, I spotted a low-loader with 2 wartime Bedford O type lorries on last night. I text my Brother who is a Military buff and told him, he texted me back to say he had seen them too and stopped further on in a layby to take some pics of it going by!

Typically I had no camera on me, yesterday I spotted an Austin 7 parked up in the next street. Painted brown, in oily rag condition rather than a minter, I think it may be the one I spotted being trailered along the main road a few months back.

A C-47 (DC3) in US colours with invasion stripes, rumbled over in the clear blue sky earlier, looked magnificent. Presumably it was heading south for the D-Day commemorations.

Isn't it funny how a car such as the MK 1V Zephyr which was shunned in it's day can now, all these years later, look good. Very Happy

They had the spare wheel ahead of the radiator...I could never quite fathom out the thinking there!

Three old tractors (inc a Massey-Ferguson and a grey Fergie) just went by, adorned with flags so perhaps part of an organised - charity? - run.
