Spotted a brace of Lexus’s today while working in S.Devon.

Are these classed as retro yet ...

Both in excellent condition.

This one had just came in to the garage I serve... but the garage has another under restoration which will be the same colour.. The different wheels on the front, I was told, it has “ tracking” problems

Not sure if these are in the classic bracket yet... but couldn't resist the photo!
The grubby one on the left is mine, and the guy on the right just "randomly" decided to park there whilst I was in the shops!

Has Fuzz sold his 541?


CV8 still there in this weeks episode

Yeah, I know. Especially if they can't even fly, let alone hit warp speed?

The C-V8 at the Car SOS garage is 104/2304, the last recorded owner is a club member and has been since 1983. CV 82 is a genuine registration, the DVLA says the car was last taxed in 2000 but the car has a current MOT.
