Spotted: classic cars on the road
Where we all share our sightings.
Saw this lovely Scimitar burbling through Putney the other evening
Good classic count on the commute this morning: Triumph Stag, Series I E-Type, MkII Jaguar, Lancia Fulvia HF, three-wheeler Morgan (in the fast lane of the M3!), and a MKI Granada (on the back of a trailer).
...and a Morris Minor in the parent & child parking at Tesco - still a brilliant local daily driver runabout for a family. Made me want one again!
Spotted a lovely little Pagoda this morning in Teddington, especially jealous in this weather!
Here's a few more from the past few months:
Saw a stunning Morris 1300GT on the M3 last night. Fortunately I was in the Mini so glad to report both were in opposing fast lanes!
Last night's classic spot was a BMW CSL 'Batmobile' on the A329 heading into Bracknell!
On the 'modern classic' front I saw an MX-5 broken down on the side of the M3 - numberplate P15 PO0, and a Fiat Barchetta, also broken down and in the process of being recovered.
Everyone can look out for my Interceptor on the telly some time soon. Got stuck directly behind a film crew hanging out of the back of a Range Rover filming three cyclists on my commute this morning. Followed them very slowly, on my best behaviour natch, for three or four miles before admittedly opening up the pipes as our paths separated. Let's hope it's not some exposé about big-engined cars polluting cyclists.
Spotted en route from Teddington station this morning: a lovely pre-war Riley Kestrel saloon in for work at Meades Motors around the corner from the office
Spotted on a trip to the mean streets of Suffolk last week
Spotted today in Gerrards Cross: gorgeous black Lamborghini Espada and a cool Saab 96. I wouldn't mind either on my drive.
