Unmistakeable! Possibly the only DS to appear. Didn't see any other CXs either. No SMs or GSs. Or Xantias ;-)
 

 

There was a very smart blue GSA parked on the ring road. It was not one that I know, that lives in MK.


At home and running:
1990 Mercdes 200TE, 1984 MG Metro MK1, 2000 Citroen C15, 1991 BMW E30 325i SE, 2001 Alfa 156 V6 Sport wagon Veloce, 2002 Citroen Berlingo

 

At home and broken:

1966 Jaguar E-Type FHC (core plug leaking), Cadillac Gear selector cable required.

Some more from me, moving into what's normally one of the public car parks but was mostly full of classics too.

 

3-litre Cavalier anyone?

Coarse Hair. There were two of these but oddly I don't remember seeing any Cortinas.

Big red Saab...

...and opposite, a slightly smaller red Saab

Did you get a photo of the back of this one? IIRC it has the amazing wraparound rear side windows... and the clamshell tailgate that glides away into the bodywork...

...Really, did they *have* to catch me in the middle of blowing my nose?

 

Granted, with my allergies it's hard not to.

 

Was surprised to see no less than two Bedford HA vans there.

.....The Auto Union 1000 wafted past in a blue haze when I returned, near home. It lives out towards Southam and is usually parked next to a green Wartburg Knight Estate which is in regular use. Clearly a man of taste.

 

Someone clearly likes his two-strokes. The smokey haze when he parked in the service lane was quite acrid. Easy to forget that once upon a time, two-stroke cars were more commonplace.....and pollution more visible.

Couldn't get near the back of it I'm afraid. It was jammed right up against the hedge in a vain attempt to stop the front sticking out into the road. Wikipedia says it does indeed have such a tailgate so I'd love to have seen it in action.

Didn't see any. I did see a 1987 Mercedes R107 carrying iffy silver-on-black plates though.
