Excellent night photography there, most impressed. Love the HB Viva - but even when they were new I thought the wheels looked stupidly small, and by today's standards, they're positively comical! :lol:

The Talbot is amazing. I don't think I've ever seen one and prob never will... how cool that it is still out and about!

I also wonder what owners of scabby bedfords, espaces and novas would think if they found out their cars were pin-ups on a website :D

A proper spot update now. You can tell these phots were not taken with an I-phone because if they had been I'd have made sure to tell you all that they were, so that you knew I was Apple'd up. I am not.

Posted Image

I don't normally take photos of these Mercs as there seem to be a lot around still and they don't really fall under my shite radar - they're just old Mercs. But then as I approached it became clear this was proper giffer spec :D

Posted Image

This is the first of a collection of "modern" photos, inspired by ReallyLoud. I won't post others but will keep them for a decade or so before looking back. I will try and get something that is of at least vague current interest in them though so that in the future they is definitely something that will make me go "Cor!"

Perhaps the piece de resisatence of this update...

I am thoroughly "appled up" thank you so much. The recent winds have released about half a tonne of bramleys from the tree.

I'd have that Princess hearse...oh yes.

The lights look good like that... (they are just princess lights on their side, aren't they?).

This thread has cheered me up! The blue 131 and Avenger are tip-top :)

I am currently wondering if Mrs_L to be would allow me to swap the currently selected limo with a Princess-derived one. I'm sure I've seen one somewhere.

They were a rather nice piece of kit, despite the way the odds were stacked against them. I've had two. First was this one, a 1978 2.2HL auto towards the end of 86...

...seen here in the company of my parents and their 1981 Lada 1500 estate, second of 3. This Princess, however, was murdered by a VW Polo in early December 1990...

...which was a real shame. I'd have another, they are so comfy!

The rest are from today. I went to the Model Eng exhibition at Sandown Park which wasn't that great and the car park was distinctly bare of decent spots too. Only this tasty Triumph.

Posted Image

I err, took a detour from the Kingston one way system as I missed my junction. Worth it though!

Dolly,

And hang on is that a nice Victor over there. No, not a Victor. A Holden perhaps?

Posted Image

Lets take a closer look.

OMG! Kapitan!

Posted Image

Posted Image

I obviously stopped the car and had a proper look. The owner was inside cutting hair. Real nice "rockin'"guy. He believed it is the only one in the country on the road - may be another saloon in bits somewhere.
