Blimey :shock:
Facebook thread seems to say the occupants walked away OK.

At A66 East bound, Great Burdon, Darlington. The Durham police twitter feed says “A66 eastbound at Great Burdon currently closed following minor injury accident, awaiting recovery” and then “road now open”. Amazing when you see the pictures. What a way to start the year :shock:

Not to worry. It was a Bentley. Or a Jaguar. Or a convertible*: *

* now been edited to say "a rare Jens - o - n [sigh] CV8" - only without the hyphens, as this board has autocorrect for that error....]

"overturned on the footpath just after the roundabout" - too enthusiastic on wet road?? Looks like a JOC badge on the bonnet.

One of the comments on facebook. Looks a lot worse than it could have been fortunately.

Callum Craddy I driven past just after it'd appear. Was a police van on scene & an officer inspecting an elderly womans neck, stood up near the van. And an elderly guy going through stuff at the back of the car. No other cars looked to be involved so seems they're very lucky!

Now we have established that the occupants are ok, next step is to ensure that this car is assessed as insurance category C, not A or B which would prevent it ever being repaired. Bodyshells are available in Holland and it would be financially worthwhile for an enthusiast to rebuild - or even the owner if they are keen and have the time and money.

Anyone know how to get in touch with the owners?

It wouldn't be a difficult task to establish the name of the officer who dealt with the incident. He could potentially pass on a message to the owner concerning the availability of CV8 body tubs. However the owner's "elderly" wife will probably be keen for her husband to acquire something a little more sedate.

In the mid to late eighties my brother was working at a Ford dealership in Redditch. One day he was showing an elderly couple the Fiesta range. The husband said "I think we'll have this one" pointing to the XR2 Turbo. My brother explained that it was a very fast car with hard suspension and suggested that a 1.4S or Fiesta ghia might be a more appropriate car for their needs. "You're wasting your time young man" his wife said "he still likes to race people at the lights."

She might have been the owner or driver and keen to move onto something more powerful!

They must buy their spares from somewhere, Appleyards, Rejen or Robeys for a lead?

Presumably the car is known to the club anyway?

I'll get the guys to check CBG records and see if we know.
