Thought this was too good to await my next Spotted's Spottings update:

Seen several times just outside Thetford on the A11, a visit to dispose of some asbestos sheets to the grimmest industrial estate in Norfolk on a foul day at least had the upside of letting me finally photograph it. Ex-library wagon?

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.

All industrial estates and retail parks are grim and they all seem to suffer worse weather than everywhere else.Great spot, can you imagine getting a haircut in that on a blustery day? :shock:

Brilliant spot! Particularly like the badges, and the coiffeur's name on the grille :D

Excellent. How enterprising! I think it would have been better with those barber shop images of 'just for men' type hair cuts on the side.Next time you'll have to go in it.

Great, I can just see the barber discreetly enquiring 'and something for the weekend sir?' as he holds up the mirror so you can approve the finished haircut from all angles :) Quickly dons anorak. Yes that could well be an ex-library van or possibly even a mobile shop, and from the position of the front axle it looks as if it could have been built on a Bedford SB bus chassis. :)

Top spot SL! I hope it has those faded 1980's Black & White photos of people with mullets etc that you sometimes see in dodgy barbershop windows.Although it's been a long time since I've had to go to a barbershop - for different reasons to you, of course. Being married to a hairdresser and thus having access to the clippers to give myself a regular "No.1 Phil Mitchell look" helps.

I honestly can't remember, nothing fancy otherwise it would have stuck in my mind. I'm a hgv driver and at the time was on loads of nights out, me hair was scruffy, needed a trim, £4 later and it was done! In and out in about 5 minutes.I can give you a full description of most the snack bars down the A11 though :roll:
