Sitting on my HGV tacho break in Cobham on Tuesday i saw an Aston Martin DB estate [shooting brake ?] and a DB6 being test driven

up and down Portsmouth road.No surprise really as cobham is home to a number of AM specialists.

Fresh catch spotted at the Oporto area during a  business trip last week...

A Volvo 122 B18...

 

A Mercedes W114 on the road....

 

Closer and at  same road, a VW Type 2 "Baywindow"...

 

A Double Decker Bus spotted from my house varanda, on the Oporto Bus Company (STCP) main garage...

 

And curious encounter on the side of the Road, a strange Land Rover S1 for sale with a phone number on a paper at the windows....

The curious thing about this LR, is that i have spotted it during 2008 in another town (50miles away). Then is was for sale on a  garage door, wearing this "working clothes"...

 

...close tho this "working fella"..

 

After I posted the Land photos at portuguese web forum someone send me a message asking for the location. I give it and never had more news about the car again, not even a "thank you" message from de guy who ask for the location.

The funny detail is that even if someone have taken the tow car equippement the front left indicator still broken.

Our day in the office was brightened when we received this from our former Editorial Director Mel Nichols who spotted at Bondi Beach.

Now that's how to use a Rolls!
