Hi
Saw this hiding in some undergrowth in Wolverhampton yesterday.
It has a pair of bonnet mounted faired in heads/spots and it looks like a sports/rally steering wheel.


Also later on the M60 (Daisy Nook area) a glimpse of a bright yellow Triumph, open top (Stag I think) stopped by an emergency phone.

Now, a very odd spot on the way home tonight. A silver Aston DB5 with the registration number '006'...

I had to look the car up, since I didn't have a camera, and it turns out I saw a Railton. I must have seen one before,but I don't know when.

I think there is a bike meet on near me or at least a local get together. Some lovely old bikes have just passed, the sound of the prewar engines are like music.

A bit of a contrast today, two at the car boot sale and one parked in town later.

The driver's door on the Ford has dropped which made me wonder if it has seen any maintenance at all?

Or am I being unfair?

It is just that with no M.O.T. requirement I can't help wondering just how safe some of these old cars are?

Certainly some nice patina with the Ford.

Not sure if it is the same type of TVR. A friend visited me yesterday with his 1999 TVR Griffith 500 which he owned since 2005. We made a short drive.
Very fast indeed. But it is not a car for me. Very cramped, too modern. I do not dislike the styling but it does nothing for me.

My Brother is a big TVR fan and has had lots of them over the years. They are quite incredible cars in my opinion but a marque to avoid unless you have deep pockets.
