Spot of the day!

Just seen one of these

 

artisan-ev1200-electric-scooter-06-2__w.

 

It said Artisan on the side. I thought it was very quiet for a motor scooter and then discovered that it's electric.

On my way to work yesterday a lovely XK140DHC.

And on the way home a nice Spitfire Mk.III.

Sadly, I also saw a really bad accident being sorted out on the other carriageway of the A249 in Kent.  I may have been delayed for a while but my day was a whole lot better than for some poor people.

Classic Ford Show at Santa Pod this weekend which would account for all the additional Fords in Northants. Going there myself tomorrow with a shopping list for the Fiesta.

No pic unfortunately but a beautiful blue Lambo Espada in the Shell garage in Buckingham this morning - he was on his way to watch some racing at Silverstone

 

(I've seen his car previously at the show at Villa Scalabrini in Borehamwood - there might be some pictures of it earlier in this thread, actually

Yesterday, A 1989 'G' plate Mini in blue and a tatty Mk1 Triumph GT6, both in Strood in Kent, yesterday.

Today, two '60s ERF lorries in immaculate condition east-bound on the M-4 just before the M25 junction, and a bit further on, an early BMW engined Bristol, also heading east on the M4.

Cheers, Alan.

Lovely little BRG BGT V8 - looked & sounded gorgeous!

 

And a bit sad looking red & black rally prepared Mini 1275GT - it appeared after I cleared off most of the junk that had accumulated on top of it over the winter...!!

Been in the Caravan in six finger pointyhead  land Swaffham in Norfolk, old couple a couple of slots down had a 1958 MG Magnette that they had owned since 1969, and their Caravan was 1968 Careline that had originally been built for use with the Rally Car Tour racing around the Alps.

Saw this and it is HUGE!

Agricultural machinery in general seems

to be so much bigger nowadays. Weird.

Was watching Countryfile last week and they had an item on Combines - absolutely phenomenal pieces of kit now, but still need sunny weather to harvest, rain still stops play!

That's a twin rotor New Holland.  Not just huge, but clever. Full of software which can identify differential yields in different parts of your fields, conduct real-time assessments of moisture levels, and you can even get the whole thing to fly on autopilot. 

 

It is still bloody annoying when you get stuck behind one on a single track road...

On the A1 this afternoon heading South,

A 1952 ish American Ford delivery.

That's a van version of the pickup truck.

 

A silver/grey Healey 3000 on the back of a recovery truck.

 

Also spotted a V12 Etype FHC just South of Lincoln on the A46.

Can I go full geek here? I think the 'Sedan Delivery' was the name for the van version of the station wagon car?

 The van version of the F-1 pickup was called the Panel,

and the cabover engine F-3 van was called the 'Parcel Delivery'.

181 combinations in the range!!!

Then bringing it back round full-circle you could pay 4x4 specialists Marmon-Herrington (of WWII armoured car fame) to convert your panel van into an offroading passenger version called the 'Ranger'. Very rare car- only 54 sold between 1949 and 1952.

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.
