A silver K-plate Torslanda heading past the Great Budworth Sailing Club this evening, heading away from Northwich.

Ran in to a nice chap in the car park of B&Q in Fratton yesterday evening, spotted his nice Green D-reg saloon and had to go and say hi. He was after parts for his car so I've pointed him at brookhouse and classicswede as well as this forum.

Rich, if you're reading, this is Alex!

Nice red 245 Y143xxx on shiny steels outside the Abercorn Arms on Church Street Teddington - obviously a used and looked-after car

I went into the pub to see if the owner was having a snifter, but alas no joy...

Dark blue 245 going west along the A27 near Lyons Farm near Worthing at about 7pm today. If you saw a light blue Volvo 164 going the other way it was me on my way back from my sons.

Another dark blue H-reg 245 in Sussex! Going north through Henfield lunchtime today - again I was in the light blue 164 following you!
Not seen this car before as would have noticed the peeling lacquer on the osr wing, but a sprightly driver! Was it you?

This is two yrs ago. I was at a petrol station in west yorks, a very faded red estate pulled in, full of people of three generations or so. The driver was a tall interesting looking woman; i went over to say hi an enthuse. She had bought it new in '86, hadn't seen any reason to change it. How many miles? " it's been round the clock a couple of times, i think" ! Aww.
