Recent sightings include a grey metallic P5B Coupe, and an Ashley 1172. This fine '49 BSA was seen the other day also.



Almost forgot, a very smart MG TC drove by earlier.

Yes, I remember seeing it somewhere around here before. That must have been where.

That takes me back. My best mate in the 6th form had a BSA M21 combo. That was the primitive 600 cc side valve. Ex Army, I believe. It had a huge family size sidecar in which I had to suffer for mile after mile. I would have preferred to ride pillion but my mate needed the ballast for left handers - or so he said. It was most uncomfortable but truly exhilarating. I thought it was quite safe; until the sidecar wheel collapsed!

I passed a 30' hotrod Ford this morning, very nice too. It was towing what appeared to be a homemade tiny caravan

In N Wales today we spotted a Moggy pickup and a saloon (photos to follow), a Lancia Lambda and a Lancia Coupe (maybe a Flavia).

There is just something about fifties convertibles I love. My sister had a 1956 minx convertible in maroon beautiful car.

I know! I've changed the photos here on my computer to upside down, and they come out upside down, but those two look right on my screen but are inverted by Thumbsnap. If anyone can change them good luck!

Passed a very brightly orange painted MGB on my way in this morning, not my ideal colour of car by any means!

Riding a bicycle can, it seems, have benefits, it took the maximum zoom on my phone to take this lousy pic from over two fields away.
