When I was on the Lakeland meet, a few things were spotted.

 

-Lotus Europa

-XR4i

-some sort of moped on a G suffix (1968/9) doing 50+mph on the M6, and overtaking people

-Lotus Elite

-red ph.2 BX estate being flatbedded up the M6

-drift spec S13 Silvia

-Danish registered TVR Cerbera in the museum car park

-P5B coupe outside someone's house in a village

-giffer owned Chevette

-Fiat Coupe in Keswick town centre that didn't look like it'd moved for a bit

 

I was following a pretty fast Piazza back down the M6/M61 for quite a while too... ;)

Drove past a turquoise Holden (Vauxhall) Frontera Sport with some serious lacquer peel. Never seen one in the flesh before and I hope to never see one again in the future.

 

Also, a Mercedes 300SL Convertible HOONED past me at eleventy-million kilometers per hour. Would love to see it again in the future as I think it is a local car.

I noticed I was being followed by a DeLorean the other day. It made me wonder if the driver was thinking 'blimey, I'm following an XM estate, you don't see many of those about nowadays'

I had do do a little research into what the fuck I saw on my way home through Northwich yesterday. I knew it was huge, air cooled, and communistical - and thanks to the internet, I now know it was a Tatra 603.
If I hadn't sat and totally gawped at its alien appearance for so long, I may have had the presence of mind to take a picture of it.

A Smart Car, not exciting in itself, but it was towing a trailer!

Admittedly a very small trailer and the "towbar" looked to be a strip of angle iron bolted across the rear plastic bumper, I'm assuming there is some metal behind it.

Anyone know anything about the Exeter city council black Rover 75 limo? Usually badly parked on the pavement outside Guildhall with quite a few parking dents. Haven't seen it in a while. Would be sad if it's been retired. If anything would motivate me to get into local politics...

T is very late for a Rialto van indeed. Always wanted a van, shape looks better than my drop boot saloon.

Just walked into town to get some stuff to eat at work tomorrow when I heard something rorty blatting around the mini-roundabout behind me.    Expecting the usual barried Corsa or 206 to dump its fake waste-gate next to my right ear I was pleasantly surprised to see a middle-aged bloke booting a minty XR4i up the Asda service road.    Makes a change from being sat behind it in a nylon chair at some car show....
