Spotted today by Mrs Pym just around the corner from home.

Kingsteignton , South Devon.

Ironically I then passed it just outside Exeter later.

No photo I’m afraid, but just saw a black Interceptor, 42 LOF in Weymouth. The rear badge had been modified to say ‘Interceptor GS’ And it had four individual, round taillights either side instead of the standard ones.

A very high quality custom job. Owned by a nice chap who wanted the car to suit his needs - including accommodating his two lovely golden retrievers.

I bought the original interior off him about 15-20 years ago. Prior to that, the low ownership low miles (circa 33,000) car was advertised in the JOC magazine for little money. Those were the days!

Out on a run with some others yesterday evening, my MK1 was with some good company. Raised a bit for local charities, met up then a 25 mile run and fish & chip supper, all round good evening. A beer when I got home :D
