Its a Toyota/Lexus Soarer

I knew that. Ha Ha. I've seen a couple over the years but not recently. Pretty.

 

Today I was in Cambridgeshire. Two spots, both on Trailers.

First was being towed on the A14, a Mk 1 Cortina 2 door shell.

It looked like it had been stripped, rebuilt but now has surface rust all over it. Tsk!

Second was an early Land Rover. A Mk2 I think, in RAF blue with RAF Police markings.

Great cooling system in place there... 

I definitely admire his commitment to it. As parts have rotted away he’s fabricated his own. Keep in mind this thing is road legal!

Almost forgot! I'm sure you'll like this one. This afternoon, as I was leaving for home, on the parking lot:

Daimler Sovereign circa 1968 on the M5 south of Worcester on Monday last. On a Channel Islands plate. A couple of sports racers on a transporter as well, but I couldn't identify them properly, and an MG TC heading Northbound.

On Tuesday I was up in the Leeds area.

On a road somewhere West of Leeds I saw an old Atkinson artic.

Similar to this one but still working with a trailer on the back.

I thought @richellis might like it.

Could well have been. It was going in the opposite direction to me and I was

so surprised to see it that I failed to register much detail, except to think of you!

Most nights when I was growing up, there used to be one of these parked next door but one.

I got out as far as Hebden Bridge then across moorland to North of Leeds.

Some beautiful country up there. (And some Very narrow lanes too!)

Indeed there is. Not far out of Leeds in any direction and your in some really lovely country. We are in God's Own County after all ^_^

No photo I'm afraid but today a 69 Mercedes 280S. It brought a tear to my eye as that was the last classic I had in Melbourne before moving here and I miss the old girl something chronic. It was in good nick - not quite as nice as mine back in Oz but very tidy.

 

I still wish I had decided to bring the old girl over here. I've had a lot of classic cars but the Merc was the best everyday car out of all of them, beautiful to drive, comfortable and it even had the almost never seen factory installed roof-rack.

 

I was tempted to wait for whoever owned it and ask what they wanted for the old girl!

 

Fun thread by the way.

@Miguel Rivero That is indeed a lovely looking Mustang.

It is of course the not quite so desirable 'Notchback'. Although I like almost any early Mustang.

I suspect it was restored a few years ago?  But it's nice to see it looking so original.

And your part of Mexico is now colder than England! What a crazy planet this is!

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Pete

Pete, you are correct this mustang was rebuild some years a go and I will do tooning and bakes.

It is in a very good condition and restored.

Yes crazy planet we live in!

 

Have a great weekend.

On the A64 north of York today...

A 'proper' Mini on an L plate. It was in great nick and was being driven by a young lass pootling along at 50mph. When i overtook it i realised just how small they really are!

On the way back from the Great Sheffield Art Show saw an 18 plate yellow Mustang driving very carefully on the M1 northbound.

Within five minutes of each other a Riley Elf (a Mk.1 Mini with a large radiator!) and a Lotus Elan.

 

Nice
