Saw some great chod today, first saw this nice pair:

Then I came across this garage which specialised in Italian classics:

First time I had seen a Montreal in the flesh since Motorclassica:

My favourite however was the Fiat 130 saloon they had. A local car that a guy had inherited from his dad after he passed away, now being worked on to get back on the road:

Coming back home I then saw this very nice HK Brougham...

I really dislike the concrete sections of the M25, Ga dunk, Ga dunk, Ga dunk, Ga dunk, Ga dunk 

I can remember driving home after a gig, about 3am, it got really hypnotic. I wonder how many 'driver asleep' accidents it's caused.

Since we've got a dog I've found some local chod less than five minutes from our house. We've been here eight years but I'd never walked up these roads as they don't go anywhere.

I don't think Chieveley understood what I was trying to do here. 

The Transit I had seen from a distance. Having a dog gives you a reason to wander nonchalantly past these things. It looks even more impressive* close up.

I want to say Lotus Esprit, but not with 5-stud rims. Hmm, maybe a TVR 350C 350i? And some kind of yank-tank, Ford LTD maybe?

Later Esprit wheels are five stud. Probably started with the turbo.

I think it is an Esprit, and is that an Opel Rekord? Are they 'local'? Never seen those before and I've driven most of the lanes near Horsham

I was further out in the sticks . I think it was an Esprit and maybe a ......., I'll have to go back and get another pic, they both had reg plates on
