I spoke to the owner and she said that one of the chaps at Bristol designed this one-off as a present for his daughter. She didn’t like it, so it was sold to Peter Sellers, the current owner’s father bought it from him.

Any more shots of that Bristol, Peasy, it looks lovely.
The brown Taunus looks very Ford Corsair-ish from the rear quarter, was the Taunus bigger than the Cortina, as it looks it here?
IMHO the lady with the Lambo is a fashion victim, those boots were probably very expensive but don't look good.

Indeed the Ford is bigger than a Cortina, rather Granada size.

Met this Routemaster in the narrowest of country lanes.

It did a 7 point turn to get into the gates.

Full of posh people heading to Lympstone Manor owned by

Michelin star chef Michael Caines.

Stunning hotel & views across the Exe.

Morris Minors seem popular in the valleys of south Wales. Following the white one on Wednesday, I spotted this one in Pontypridd on Friday...

Spotted near Newport yesterday. Much the same - but hopefully more reliable - than the silver one I used to own.

That model of Aronde was my first car. When I was 13. Really solid, well engineered little cars.
