Plenty around here...

GLT saloon
SE estate
torslanda estate
2 other estates but I'm not sure what type

Any body else from the Purbeck area on here? I'm trying to get a few spares if you are local and have any?

Out and about today I spotted a red estate in Kidderminster and a metallic blue one in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire.

Yes, but not much chance since my 240 has been in the garage since September. I regularly see a very tidy H reg silver GLT saloon parked at the Thornhill Park and Ride site in Oxford. It must be in use as it's not always in the same space! Anyone from here....?

Not a lot of chance of me crossing anyone else from here either, unless you or I am on hols!

I was 'visited' by a D24 240 the other day. Sadly no pic. It was a tatty job, but with 440,000kms it was entitled to be. Apparently mechanically very good! The chap had just purchased a 740Tub Diesal from a friend of mine, which I'd posted as for sale on the frenchy forum. After the purchase he dropped by for a coffee, er, Roger that was,not the car!

No-one has mentioned any and I cannot see any in the pictures - this is about spotted 240s is it not?
