Got to wonder what inside the Capri house is like. It appears a little gloomy. Original windows though, they'll always get me looking up the driveway (and often with success).Do we know about the new Seth-car yet?

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Here's a few more spots from the last month or so.

Accordian

Posted Image

"Proper" 911. Front left wing was very crusty.

Posted Image

Remarkably un-messed with.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Spied this in the middle of Hampstead but pretty sure its the one I saw parked near us a couple of times when we had the 95.

Posted Image

Just documenting the fact these seem to float about these parts a bit.

Posted Image

Sunny

Posted Image

I normally see this roller in the dark so when I saw it in daylight, discovering it was coved in gold I was well impressed!

Posted Image

Ickle

Posted Image

Camp

Posted Image

I was oop in the North West for the weekend and took a trip across to see R-R good egg, KevfromWales. This is his daily. Its been converted to take a wheelchair in the back so has a massive open and low floored rear deck. He regularly fills it with car parts and drives around the country collecting/delivering stuff.

Posted Image

This was in his storage unit. Its actually in really good nick and won't meet the waste paper basket for the foreseeable future.

Posted Image

He took me for a ride out to a local old-car heaven. I had forgotten to take my camera and so photography was tricky but this place is amazing! Mostly full of cars that have been picked up by the owner of the land/building for nothing. There are some real unusual vehicles!

Posted Image

Note the line-up of Invacars.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Also stopped by a tat house with these outside. Front Rapier was last taxed in '07 but wings were pretty crusty now.

Posted Image

Wonder what lies in the garage at the back?!

Posted Image

I'll finish with a cool one pillar suspension bridge I came back over.

Yeah the bridge is on the the A548 near Connah's Quay, just North West of Chester.Kev may be making enquiries about the Rapiers. Small chance one could become a Hillman donor if available...

Time for some more?

Proper Sid'n'Doris Bluebird.

OMG modernshite! V6 turdblower Pheaton. Surely that must be povo spec? Worth about 3p in a few years I reckon.

Posted Image

Can you tell what it is yet? Nice 02 on our way to some fireworks

Great Autoshite spec Mini variant.

I spotted a child seat on the pass side and one facing backwards too. It was also full.

Sorry Mr Sceptre, of course its a Sunny. I did know that. Honest.

Here's a selection from the NEC though I've tried to upload stuff other than has already been plastered up everywhere.

Great line up of '34 Fords.

I really like Peerlessesesesesses.

I've seen the publicity around this car but nice to see it in the flesh. Hadn't realised it was different on each side!

Posted Image

Next to the fastback was the Climax Herald coupe repro. Runs a Toyota 5 speed box.

Posted Image

Posted Image

I mentioned to Mrs Seth that while the Cochinelle concept next to this was pretty radical, the Bijou is still pretty mad looking for a production car.

This Commer is oh so straight. Check the reflection.

Me too, i reckon it's one of the nicest looking brit cars ever. Only ever seen one in the flesh, a gloriously tatty example on the London to Brighton years ago.

Also quite fancy Bitters, though i prefer the fastback one (CD?)

Not a huge amount to update this with unfortunately. I guess pickings are slim in the winter.

This was Christmas Day at Corley Service on the M6. I pulled up next to him as he had the bonnet up but said he was just tweaking the carbs - no major issues.

Posted Image

This appeared close to home recently.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Fairly sure this Honda is one I see driving about quite a bit bu not caught it parked before. Misc hubcaps

Posted Image

OK, this next one isn't shite. But this was last Wednesday when we had the deluge of snow. About 4" had fallen when I saw this and only major roads were generally clear. Resptcet!

Final coupe were seen in Cambridge on a visit with an American friend on New Years eve.

A disabled Merc.

This was the only spot I managed on that run to pick up the Herald bulkhead. I thought it was lowered at first but I think it just had four people in it.
