I thought initially I could see an MGB in the distance. How wrong was I! Nice to find something interesting instead once he hit traffic. :D

This truck is not shite but was an amusing second time spot. Saw it last year when we went to watch the Fireworks at Alexandra Palace but had no camera. Went to Ally Pally again last night, parked somewhere quite different and bumped into it again parked well away from where it was last year!

Some posh West End shite seen from the Pogfus.

Mine did! What happened to all those COOL features that Corgi put on its model cars of the late 60s and 70s?

I know, toy cars are shit in comparison, or only built to be played with for a short time, do you remember the Commer Police van with the battery operated lights or the Austin Cambridge Learner car with the steering on the roof?

I'd forgotten that, but yes, it did!! 8) And yes, I had that Cambridge with the wheels that steered using the driving-school logo on the roof. In blue with a white stripe. And, a lovely shiney Studebaker GOLDEN Hawk! Ah, simple pleasures.

This one apparently:

"The vehicle was specially built for the Beatles star and had a black velvet interior and a record player installed.

He owned the car for three years until moving to the United States with his wife Yoko Ono, when he sold it to fellow band member George Harrison.

In 1975 it was sold to Mary Wilson of The Supremes, after which it began to fall into a state of disrepair."
