On Friday morning I went into the depths of West London to pick up and Ebay purchase. Bloke was doing up a shop with this at the end of the Parade. There's a classic Jag specialist there too.

Posted Image

There were seom dust covered British sports cars in a couple of the shop fronts but I couldn't really get photos. I don't know what the parades destiny is though :? Anyhow, I decided to take a scenic route back to the north circular through residential roads, avoiding the A40.

I heard a programme on Radio 4 once, in the daytime, where Stephen Fry was investigating the origins of the phrase "the dog's bollocks". The expert was explaining the difference between bollocks, which is bad, and the bollocks, which is very good indeed. You don't get that on Radio 2.

Instead of doing a reasonably local U-turn recently I drove around the block instead. And found one of those roads full o' shite! All these up to and including the Merc coupe within about 300 yards of each other.

Saw this bus twice in a day doing a school run. Didn't smell like it complied with LEZ regs so wondered if it was able to roll around unnoticed by Big Brother on small residential roads

Posted Image

Posted Image

Might have spotted this Dyane before. Anyway it is MINTY

Posted Image

Posted Image

A nice pair of non-scene VWs seen on the same road today.

Lots of flat paintwork on show. Nice update, shows that it’s always worth exploring some new route.Your hiding-round-the-corner spy-shot of Accord lady is amusing.

That's either a landliner or road ranger (I get em mixed up), and may well have started life as a V6.

That place was a classic car dealers I think. I went there to pick up an ebay purchase that seemed to be being sold by someone helping develop on of the other shops in that parade. Not sure what the fate of the rest was to be. Some dusty cars inside too.

Went to the Enfield Pageant today. Was a good show except that a lot of jumblers seem to have upped sticks on Sunday leaving lots of big gaps. Very annoying. Still I spent some money with those that were left including a nice British made valve spring compressor for 20p! Actually on a "10p shee"t but I doubled his takings :D

Some show photos may be appearing elsewhere so here's some car-park spots.

Actually these first two were in the jumble area for sale. I have the number if anyone wants it...

Into the car park, these normally leave me fairly cold but this had something about it.

Finally a couple of shitey spots from the journey home.

Some more from the last few weeks.

This is much newer than my usual spot era but I couldn't think of the last time I saw a Polo estate this shape.

Posted Image

This Consul is very local to me and as far as I know has been in the garage for a long time. Recently came outside and put up on stands minus wheels. I presume they're getting painted or something :? Has 27k on the clock and original clear seat covers that can be unzipped.

Posted Image

Aha, this is more shitey.

I was driving around the Victoria one way system one weekday morning and checked over my shoulder to see if there was anything next to me. There was! A Visa! Driver gave me a "classic car nod" :D

Wow. These 1301/1501s used to be all over Reading in various states of decay back in the 80s, along with many 1100s. I reckon this was down to there being a big Chrysler dealer nearby. You just don't see 'em any more. I read somewhere that some of them had a back-to-front gearchange pattern, that must have been good for a laugh.
