Spot of the day, Part 4

So earlier in the thread I mentioned that my first car was a mini clubman estate 🙂. Unfortunately I reversed it into a concrete post and the rear doors never shut properly after that so I part exchanged it against my favourite car that I've ever owned. The picture below although a little grainy shows what I brought and although this car was nothing special I would have it back tomorrow no problem.....definitely my all time best buy i absolutely loved this car and spent a fortune on it 🙂👍

However this led to the biggest mistake i ever made when I eventually part exchanged it for a Austin Montego......a bloody Montego what was I thinking 🙄. That decision still haunts me today but at least I have the pic above 🙂👍

At Sleaford Classic Car and Motorcycle Show yesterday - four VW campervans, three of which are split window types.

Agreed, it's lovely! And the colour scheme is much the same as my son and mine's. Unfortunately any similarity ends there....!! :)

Loving the Bristol above,real quality. The Lotus Cortina I'm not quite convinced is genuine after looking inside,but I could well be wrong,it looks brand new from the outside. And the Cortina mk4,you never ever see these now! Chris.

Which, using MoT history, no longer exists!😪

 

Might still be around - could be sorned, or back on the road after a long period of sorn. Our Mini has no MOT history for the past 7 years as it's been on SORN in the garage. And if we ever get it back on the road it's now MOT exempt so won't have any 'future history'...

Yesterday I saw a silver Lotus 7 (with full cage, etc.) and a dark blue TVR (not sure which model) near Grantham.  On the A1 there was a white pony car (Camaro or Firebird) going north on a trailer.  Only caught a brief glimpse. 

Best spot of the day was shortly afterwards - a light grey Trabant heading south on the A1 (where the 50 mph roadworks zone is) south of Grantham.  A Trabbie! The first I've seen in UK.  It was on G prefix British plates.

Today, a Dolomite in yellow. No vinyl roof, so don't think it was a Sprint, and a "Cobra". Couldn't be certain it was original.

Oh, and a couple of days ago, the yellow Dyane again, closer to it this time so I could see it's condition, which I would put down as "not brilliant"!

Several today but only one really worthy of this thread, there was a Volvo estate I think probably a V60, parked on the side of the road with 4 flat tyres. :( Slashed/spiked/deflated, who would know, someone will be well peed off, then later a Holden Colorado double cab ute, leather trim, top of the line model but obviously a bugger to park, taking up two parallel, as in nose to tail, parks in the supermarket car park. The auto park must of broken down :(  😠, but best of all & most worthy, a Holden HG ute, late 70s, in the fairly common beige colour of the day, it looked unrestored, tidy but with some patina, & a tray full of bicycles. nice. :)

probably the first public appearance of the new Iso Rivolta. 

That looks pretty tasty, nicely curved, not all sharp aggressive style.

Coming home from work today I was followed by a pale gold J reg ('91) BMW 5 series.

It looked good in the rear view mirror, a proper Beamer with a proper grille.

The modern ones look like they need the black protective film to be peeled off.
