Bloody hell! That man has a Saab 9000 (with a second possibly as there’s one in front of the red one) and two BL Wedges.... he’s my new hero!!!

I dream of that life!!!

That made breakfast more entertaining this morning - thanks for sharing!
I guess the older chap wearing a red top and quietly hobbling around is the perpetrator. Could have been so much worse.
Didn't think I was a particular fan, but that Saab is lovely. Wolseley looks really solid, too.

Looks like they need a bucket of water throwing over them. Dirty buggers be breeding! Seriously though top work on the extraction. Check behind the bumper of the Saab though for any damage behind d as them bumpers are designed to push in.

I think you're right, like Norfolklish but slightly more sophisticated.
