The owner of this Marina seemed ashamed at being photographed behind the wheel of his steed and drove off :lol:

With all the new Fiat 500's about (which I do rather like) it was nice to see this original beauty on Wapping Wharf in Bristol....

That Rekord's really gone down hill in the last 2-3 years.. shame. Saw the ageing pilot hammering up towards the top of Haldon Hill 2 weeks ago, whilst in the works Transit. :D

So odd seeing a pov-spec Mk4 Cortina nowadays, yet when I grew up the things were everywhere. If I do see one it’s usually a Mk5 (Cortina 80, whatever) so it’s a bit of a treat to the little rear lights and shallow windows on that one. Beige too.Like the reg on it, one of my old Laurels was RFP110R, IIRC.

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400

And a couple of modern Toyotas.

That reg number is so long it needed dividing by a comma! :shock:

Slight update from last week, starting off with a wonderful find on a Barnstaple council estate in the shape of a tatty Reliant Regal 3/25 saloon!

Superb photograph! Cut out the modern silver Corsa looking thing and it could have been taken 40 year ago! Even the roads and pavements look 1968. 8)

One's a camper (con)version, the other's a saloon/estate thing. I'd say the difference is quite visible!

I was talking about them in general terms, I'm sure Foxes aren't always campers! :P

The truth lies somewhat in the middle I guess, Wiki says:The Reliant Fox is a small four wheeled glass fibre utility vehicle manufactured by the Reliant Motor Company in Tamworth, England between 1983 and 1990. It used 850 cc aluminium engine and was technically based on the Reliant Kitten with which it shares its chassis, engine and running gear (with some modifications).
