Spotted the Morris at the local Morrisons car park last week and the bubble car outside the RAC building in London yesterday.

Spotted this unloved but daily Volvo in South Devon.

Yes that’s Moss on the side.

I saw a similar car (though a Mercedes) pull into a local pub a couple of years ago. A quick DVLA search showed the car to have no tax or MOT...

After this weekends storms battering the South West it’s good to

see a local car out and about in the English Riviera (Torquay)

I was hoping to see a wider variety of machines at "Thomas Classic and Modern" today for their 5th birthday. I didn't realise they are a mini specialist!
It made me smile when looking at a mini 850 that the capacity of one cylinder of a 440 is bigger than the entire engine of the mini!

Great to be driving around in my other V8. Not a classic but a fantastic car to drive, still with 90’s corded mobile phone in it. The one where the buttons light up green on the handset. Time of Wall Street and yuppies!!

Thanks Grant. Only about 47000 miles on the clock and in very good condition. However the e30 (middle one) 325i is an’87 and it’s been with me for a couple of decades - such fun to drive!!

E30 325i.. one of the nicest shape BMW's made, in the day I drove quite a few of them, loved them so much, then the E36 came along YUK!!!.. Is your one a Manual one Karan?.. I've just realised you have too many cars and I can take them off your hands Free of Cahrge to you Karan?.. that's a good offer Karan, lets consider the deals done then Image.. thank you so much Karan, I'll be up yours at the crack of sparrows then.. see you in the morning and thank you againImage
