This was the last opportunity to take photos of my friend's collection. It's all going to be restored* soon** and includes lorries and a couple of buses. 

When I first saw this collection about 20 years ago, it was in a Farm. The outbuildings contained a Volvo NOS Parts Department. Shelves and all! 

It was fucking mental and I was lost for words. 

This is the tip of the iceberg and shows both phases of his buying habits... 



Holy crap... I didn't expect for there to be many of these left, but damn!

It's based on a Volvo Amazon, with body by the Belgian de Mola coachbuilders, from 1961

Thankyou very much! The mystery is finally solved! My friend took the picture years ago at a museum in Brussels. No information about the car even there! 👍 👍 👍 😎 😎 😎

Slightly wobbly pic, but here's a 605 at rest I saw yesterday. I'm tempted to write to the owner to ask if it could possibly be for sale, except I'm an anxiety-ridden coward. :D

I know that feeling! :D

I spotted a very tidy looking Audi Coupé on my walk to work yesterday. Looking very colourful compared to the two modern cars either side.

I spotted something interesting lurking at the back of the Travelodge car park last week and had to go in for a closer look. Behold this epic Sherpa!

G93 VHT - 1989 Leyland-DAF 200

Had a chat with the owner, a nice chap who said it's a low-mileage ex National Grid van that had been in a barn for years (there's a 2006 tax disc in the windscreen) and he's just got it MOTed after a fair bit of welding (not surprising for a 30-year old LDV). His plan is to restore it back to National Grid livery and then show it. Perfect for FOTU.

Didn't know where to put this but check out the panel fit on this 'premium' POS.


Is that on a Discovery Sport ? 
The company I work for had one delivered today and the doors are the same
