  1. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Saturday saw an immaculate Jaguar XK 120 trundling through Banbury. Sunday a Mk1 Golf and a Ford Sierra. Complete Matrix moment today, with two white MGB GTs within a mile of each other! Karl
  2. More Pet Hates grumble grumble grumble

    Idiots who feel the need to drive with their headlights on full beam, even when you have flashed them repeatedly with your own lights! They even do it around here where there are streetlights! Maybe they just think that the little blue light on the dash is pretty. Karl
  3. Pet hates.

    Banbury drivers! They all seem to wait a time least 5 seconds after the light has turned green before even considering proceeding at the slowest possible pace to the next set of traffic lights, of which there are many in Banbury. When outside of Banbury they will crawl through a 60 zone at 40, while blithely continuing at 40 through the next village which is a 30 zone. Karl
  4. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Two good spots today, a pale metallic green Citroen DS in immaculate condition, and an equally smart Scirocco Mk2 in dark metallic grey. Karl

  7. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Following Saturday's trip to Cornwall with number one son, Sunday saw a trip to Lancashire with number two son. Cheshire appeared to be full of Ferraris and naff SUVs, including one of the new Bentley Bentayga 4x4s. There were however some decent spots including: a very nice Mk1 escort in bright orange an equally nice Triumph TR4 an immaculate Aston Martin DB 5 a racing Aston Martin DB 2 on a trailer a 50s Chevy pickup Karl
  8. Spot of the Day Part 2

    500 mile round trip today taking number one son back to university in Falmouth, so plenty of spots along the way: MG SV prototype on the M5 Subaru SVX Triumph Stag Jaguar Mk2 McLaren MP4 Loads of bay window VW Type 2s in Cornwall Cab forward Land Rover in Truro Austin 7 van on a trailer. Ausrin 7 convertible coupe, also on a trailer. Tomorrow it's time to take son number two to university in Lancashire. Karl
  9. Spot of the Day Part 2

    A very eclectic selection on the way home tonight: Rover P6 Sunbeam-Talbot 90 Mk2 Jaguar Triumph GT6 Rover SD1 Estate The SD1 wasn't a genuine Rover prototype, but a home conversion using the rear end of a Volvo 240 estate. Karl
  10. Spot of the Day Part 2

    Some very interesting, well to me, spots this week so far: Jensen CV8 Not 1, but 3 Lamborghini Aventadors on the M25 A car transporter full of original Fiat 500s, 600s and 750s in coupe, saloon & multiple variants, all mint. Scimitar Mk2 And it's only Wednesday! Karl
  11. Spot of the Day Part 2

    A couple of unusual spots on the M25 this afternoon: An immaculate Bedford J Type on a trailer, in a very fetching two tone blue. An original Lotus Elan in full 60s orange. Karl
  12. Spot of the day!

    Bit of a Triumph theme today on my travels: 2000 saloon resplendent in orange on the M40 this morning. Stag in maroon on the M25 this afternoon. TR3 in red on the M40. And just to add a little balance, a Citroen H type van on the M25 on the way home. Karl
  13. Spot of the day!

    From what I have heard, the bean counters at BL changed the originally specified head gasket for a cheaper alternative that hadn't been approved by the engineers. Cue a whole load of completely avoidable overheating problems. Somewhat less glamorous, but on topic, a mint 87 Panda yesterday in Banbury. Karl
  14. Spot of the day!

    6 Austin Healey 3000s in Banbury this morning! Karl
  15. Spot of the day!

    It was obviously trailer day on the M40 this morning as the following classics were all be trailered around: 2 MGBGTs VW Type 2 split screen van A Jaguar XK120 Both the MGs were in good shape, and the XK was immaculate, but the poor old VW was in need of some serious TLC. Karl
