It is indeed a thing. Quite a rare thing.

He did apologise as he almost walked in front of me. I doubt he had any idea what the subject matter was. Annoyingly there was a Porsche 924 two cars in front of the escort but I wasn't ready in time.

A year ago I wouldn't have bothered with this but it's the only T-reg one I've seen recently and not one on an S for weeks. Are they getting that scarce or is it me not noticing?

I think the early ones are getting scarce.
Time to find a decent one and stash it away for a few years then £££!

Winchester Homebase this morning.
attachicon.gif20180513_102324.jpg

I thought it was a GTI
attachicon.gif20180513_102352.jpg
But apparently it's an unfortunately named STDT. I'm guessing some sort of diesel GTI lookalike.

 

1.8TD in that...That's a very rare car nowadays...

Burbling through a small country town in L'il Thunder last night, when something snagged my eye through a dusty showroom window and I pulled over...

 

20180516_212936.jpg

 

Well, bugger me sideways. If it isn't a 2.8 Grandud... with white wheeltrims on steelies?

 

DVLA - Granada 2.8 - Ballyclare, May 18.png

 

Looks more like Ford Diamond White to me, rather than 'Cream', but it was dusk and I'm not going to start an argument.

 

Other, slightly more borderline chod also a-lurking: Volvo floppytop, for one.

 

20180516_212947.jpg

 

20180516_212958.jpg

 

MOAR shite visible out the back, too - though only the deflated Audi 80 B4 sparked much interest.

 

20180516_213019.jpg

 

There were some more old knockers parked further up the hill to the side, inc. Ford Ka, Mk1 Focus, and E36 flavour BMWs, again on flat tyres and looking generally unloved.

 

The whole place had a somewhat run-down vibe to it, but is, apparently, still an operating business...

Rancho at the Bondville model village near Brid.

attachicon.gifIMG_20180509_145905.jpg

 

Is that a commentary on how much bigger modern cars have become?  The Rancho is to scale but the Bini is nearly the same size as the caravan it's parked next to :P

 

datsuncog - whereabouts is that showroom?  looks like a very intriguing place.

It's in Ballyclare, Co Antrim - a traditional wee county town garage, somehow staying in business despite probably selling something like eight cars a year.

 

Trading for 50 years, according to website blurb.

If I hadn't been following the satnav rather than going my usual route through the town, I never would have seen it...
