  1. I love the seats in the Scenic and that XM's lights!

    I think that double decker used to drive through Pershore and Evesham until the last few months (or it was one of a similar vintage). It did seem strange to send such an old bus quite far out of Worcester.
  3. Great pictures! I saw one parked up behind a stealth-vanlife type van in a layby the other day, it seemed to be being used as a tough little workhorse as Peugeot intended. One I see regularly (a diesel) has over 300,000 miles on it with its long-term owner who will not sell it. They're often to be found round the back of farms, usually with a handful of 306s and maybe a 405/6 estate, in various stages of workhorse or club rally-style dilapidation.
  4. How much weight do you think the back doors will be able to take in those boxes? (genuine question) Great thread!
  5. These must be soooo comfy and wafty with the v6 auto! I loved my hdi.
  6. A couple of years ago I had a 306 GTI-6 and when it was in the garage I was given the garage shitter focus 1.6 of the same era. My 306 was getting on a bit but the focus was one MOT from the scrapyard and .had been driven with no oil in it, etc. etc. Honestly I thought the focus drove better and I realised there might be something to the hype.
  7. This isn't the most exciting video in the world but skip on to 1:16:30 for a K reg Leyland Daf still putting in a good shift.
  8. At about 7 mins is a good wheelie.

    Were the B7TLs any relation to this? On the route this one is pictured on, they took a load of normal buses off and put these coaches to work. They made such weird noises, like a spaceship or something at times. The mainly old people who used them didn't like the steps, so it wasn't long before they were taken off the route and normal buses were back.
  10. What’s up with this little lot? Taken today.
  11. I just googled that model and it isn't what it looked like (although it was a white Mercedes, looking immaculate). Maybe I mixed up the registration.
  12. I saw a lovely old Mercedes truck in use the other day, I thought it was an LN with the registration A18 NBC but the MOT checker is vague... @LightBulbFun?

    Loving the NCB pictures @rattlecan. I was staying with my parents in South Wales the other week and a man drove past in a series 2 landrover wearing an NCB coat... it was like time travel!
  14. I didn't recognise that in the first picture, nice one Spottedlaurel. I go past there regularly and they still have lots of old and unusual stuff outside. The lineup changes from time to time but I've seen the big Bedford working on a building site before now, and the Ward La France out on the road too. They've currently got a dodge/renault 4x4 military truck parked up there I think. Will get a photo next time.

    Are you keeping the towbar?
  16. I just saw a K reg 306 - got to be quite a rare thing now?

    1993 Citroen XM

    It's great to read about living the dream. Keep the photos coming!
  18. I've done this with a diesel 406 and tdi mk3 golf with success. Both had plenty of faults but they didn't actually stop the cars from driving or being reasonably safe, so I just ignored them. It was liberating on one level but a bit inconvenient at times.

    What’s going on with this? Seen on the Severn Bridge earlier, in the wind. It must have been a bit hairy to drive.

    EO the Clio

    If you squint those hubcaps look a bit like the Renaultsport alloys. Maybe?

    I vividly remember this. The driver casually slicking between gears in a clapped out 30 ye old Atlantean which was weeks from scrap (maybe VR? Would they have the same shift?) with a gang of lads looking at him as if he was some kind of driving god.
  22. I was quite excited to see this in the Listers garage.
