If anyone is near the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead at the moment, they can perve over this tax-exempt gem....

3-speed automatic, and bubbling paintwork, lovely....

If you look in Streetview, it’s been parking in that street since at least 2008, looks to have been resprayed around ten years ago too.

These two in Allendale after the Skylark was posted here before. I met the owners and drove them both. I now have the option to buy the Toronado.😂

Also mysterious rotten coupe in the North Pennines. Can anybody tell what is?

I remember going to Allendale over 20 years ago now and seeing the American cars. I want to say that the guy had a yellow school bus and a fire chief's car at the time.

He did indeed own 2 school buses. He's scaled down his fleet considerably now and only owns the Skylark (his wife actually does), Cherokee which needs welding and the Toronado he bought on ebay about 5 years ago, although I recall it being on ebay more recently. Tempted by it but it's another project I really don't need, kept his number anyway in case he ever decides scrapping it, I would definitely have it then.

In the mid. Seventies when I was a child most households only had one car. Those with two usually had one new car and the second was an older car or sports car. A house across the road from us had two identical cars, two Viva’s, two Bond Bugs then two Skoda Rapid’s. Not necessarily in that order as my memory is not that good. Anyway although these are boring modern cars, they are a great colour and reminded me of our old neighbours:

 I wasn’t  sure whether to put this in the number plate thread but the plates are not that great but do have S C Marsh below on both in a proper ‘90’s fashion:

Whilst I am not overly impressed with the vehicles it is nice to see people who know what they like. Both the above are only a few hundred yards apart.

I found a little car show by accident while on holiday with the girls last week 😁

I spent most of it nattering to the owner of the Group B spec Renault 5 turbo.  Amusingly it has the same basic 1.4 Cleon as my Dacia but putting out 300bhp 😎😎😎
