If you see a Mimosa Sprint hooning around the ring road like a hooligan, sorry.

Last weekend, in Keynsham, I saw an immaculate Riley Elf (or maybe a Wolseley Hornet?). Not just that, but it was a soft top version.

It's the weather for it, immaculate BMC landcrab opposite the Cambridge Corn Exchange Monday, my Sprint actually had a bit of respite from getting it's picture taken for a bit.

Something I haven't seen for a number of years appeared today on the Northbound M25. !
An original Lotus Sunbeam in great condition! With the reg DAC nnn Y
Wave, wave and thumbs up !
No means of saying "One of my other cars is also a Lotus" sadly.
I'd have kept up in a Sprint !
That quite made my day.
I remember thinking of buying one as an alternative to a Sprint .
Tony.

Saw this in a place called Veldhofen, near Eindhoven, Holland, was working there for a couple of days.
Then on the way to Brussels airport I saw an immaculate Mk1 Transit on a side road.

Already plans for settling in that beautiful country?

In Veldhoven does live a forum member.

Bother! I didn't realise. Spent Kings day in a hotel room, who wants to go to a party in Eindhoven of 200,000 people wearing orange and I'm the only one not!
