Spotting classics on the road will become a thing of the past in Greater London as soon as this time next year (aug 2023)

Hi
You may already be aware but there are only a few weeks left of the “consultation” period for expanding the Ultra Low Emissions Zone out to the M25 circling London in the UK

this will result in classics from the 80s and 90s being charged £12.50 per day to be driven

this will result in me putting all my cars on blocks and waiting until they meet historic status, one of which will be two decades !

complete the consultation survey and have your say ;

Felix,
It's ON the road, not UNDER the road!

Well, it’s not a Scrabble word and is probably what NSU drivers say about the reliability of their Wankel engines!

Isn’t this how a service garage should look?

According to this, yes.
I think the one he ran as a long-term car in Classic Cars magazine was blue, so I'm not sure if it's the same car.

For a moment, I thought the white Peugeot was an MGB!

Autocar Repairs in Dulwich!
That's where I bought my Lotus 25 years ago, off that same little forecourt.
Funny to see their sign again.
