Hi
I've seen a camper van towing a car for a runabout when on site, but never one on the roof rack. Need a long ramp for that. Very Happy

A rally-prepared Audi quattro hatch, and an 80 quattro in rally garb, just went by. Something must be going on today.

Weaver Wander is on today, perhaps it's that.

I saw three MGBs travelling in convoy, a Minor convertible and a hot-rod of some kind.

Ah yes that'd be it Mike, junior spotted a few things in town today parked at the Peacock.

I was followed by a dark green old MG today, sad to say I don't recognise the model. Shortly after that, another very old blue car, which I also cannot be specific. As it had a bulbous front to the bonnet I want to say it was a Morris, but I'm not sure.

I had the pleasure of riding in an AA recovery truck yesterday (a modern 'failure to proceed'), not the best fun but it did enable me to spot an old ERF lorry behind a building not far from here that I'd not seen before. And an XJS in someone's rarely-opened garage.

It is sometimes difficult to differentiate between TA,TB,& TC models of MG. I think the green one is a probably TC. The driver and passenger would be sitting closer together in a TA and TBs are vanishingly rare.

There must be something on - a mate reported a couple of older Porsches (which I presumed to be 356) around the area yesterday morning.

Spotted a very early Fire Engine heading towards Nantwich on the A51 around Barbridge, unfortunately there were a couple of HGV's in front of me so I only saw it when I turned into our drive.

Hi
There was a chocolate brown Triumph 2.0 or 2.5 with the Mk2 front, going the other way, on the A666 between Bolton and Darwen this morning.
