Spotted this green goddess in the tiny village of Lympstone

Travelled to London and back today. Saw surprisingly few classics... a couple of camper vans, a nice Porsche 928, a beaten up Montego (classic?) towing a horse box, an old Volvo, a Citroen H Van... but as i was driving i only managed to take a pic of this Merc in Putney.
