Something I'd personally like to see posted on here is any time anybody sees an MR2, Mk1, Mk2 or Mk3. It's sort of "How Many are there out there?". I know I can drive mine for miles and miles and not see one.

That makes sad reading!

 

Alfasud - 7

Ford Fiesta XR2 - 287

Vauxhall Astra GTE 16v - 59

Honda VF-750 - 11

 

I have owned all these vehicles over the years and it comes as a surprise (well maybe not the Alfa) how few are left...

 

Cheers,

Alan.

Sunday morning spot as usual

IMG-5705.jpg

 

This M4 is finished in a special BMW Individual paint of Speed Yellow, basically a Porsche colour. One of 12 special M4 Individual cars built for members of M Owners Club Indonesia.

And a 458 Spider in Rosso Corsa with Cuoio interior. Basically a resale spec, but when it looks this good I will let it slide.

According to this handy website there are 2,200  MR2s on the road and another 5&1/2 thousand on SORN.  You can break it down further by models if you know the type.

Yes, and if you do you find some interesting points, such as the number that have been converted to 3 litre (V6, ex Camry or Lexus) and the two diesels (?).

Even more interesting, the administrator reckons he's got 22,000 active users in the Owners Club!!!

In Saxilby today, (just outside Lincoln) a white Reliant Scimitar. Black Vinyl roof & Wolfrace wheels.

Not too far away, in Stow, there lives a lovely little yellow Lotus Elan of around 1970 vintage.

Went to the Goodwood Revival on Sunday for some great racing. Just a couple of pictures as my phone was playing up and ran down pretty quickly! The nail varnish coloured car didn't race,and  no.31 is a 1931 Maserati Tipo 26M. It was pouring with rain when I took this. Chris.

Can't help thinking this could get very boring very quickly. Just today I saw a blue Mk2 parked up going into work, then followed a grey Mk3 for part of the way home and passed a silver Mk3 coming the other way. Still, could be worse. I could be calling out all the ones like mine (Mk7 Fiesta) 😆

That's (partly) jogged my memory of seeing a red MK3 convertible earlier this week, but the failed part of the memory is where....!!

Spotted this outside Classic Team Lotus last week.

p?i=bb22b63b23f04904a139fa57e549fdd2

 

and was sitting in a layby having my breakfast and this went past, only just caught the photo.  I assume its an early one as the bonnet had louvers

There's a black MkI (mentioned previously) and a yellow Mk2 both local to me.  Someone up the road had a grey Mk3 roadster but now you've made me think about it, I don't think I've seen it recently.

That's one thing i've always wanted outside my house either a LAPD or NYPD Chevy Caprice....

I always though the NYPD blue and white suits the Caprice very nicely👍

 

Regards,

If i could find one in A1 condition i'd also love to have the smaller brother of the Caprice,a Vauxhall Senator in Greater Manchester Police livery...
