Followed a lovely Lanchester Eleven home tonight, it was motoring on and certainly didnt brake for any village 30mph limits!!

Nice to see such a car out in the spring sunshine.

I saw a white Triumph 2000 or 2500 yesterday, with a black-painted roof.

Something small and sporty heading the opposite way along the Blackwood bypass this evening. It was getting dark and I didn't get a good look at it, but the shape, size and sound suggested later Spitfire to me - it certainly wasn't anything modern going by the size.

Also seen a maroon coloured Austin 7 trundling around the Blackwood area a couple of times recently. Not a minter but tidy enough, the sort of car you wouldn't be afraid to drive and enjoy.

First proper trip out the village other than going to work today. We stayed local but went into Wells for a wander round in the sunshine.

We spotted plenty out and about in the sunshine, a red MGB in the car park, then a Morris traveller and an A40 Farina on the drive home.

Also saw a couple of nice old motorbikes out too.

Whilst out at the MOT garage yesterday I had chance to look over what must be quite a scarce BMW, an E30 3-series converted by Baur into a convertible.

Out for a walk on Hastings seafront today, an immaculate Mk1 Mini stopped at the lights for me to cross the road. A pale metallic green mk1 Capri went past and a split screen VW camper, both also immaculate!

I saw a Sinclair C5 going down the road yesterday, the only one Iíve ever seen being used on the road. It was going at a decent pace so I suspect it may have had a more modern motor and battery. I donít know how fast the original C5 went but the chap on a bicycle following was having a hard job keeping up.
