If that's local to us both, and it looks to be if that's the roundabout I think it is, I'm staggered I've never spotted it before!

I swear it has been on these pages before, H897HPL sounds awfully familiar, I remember amusing myself at the "HPL" part of its registration Mark :)

IL3889, only 2 total keepers, and whoever computerised it in the late 1970's early 80's had it until 2016!

but whoever did computerise it, did not do a very good job at it LOL

I do appreciate that no ones ever bothered to fix it, i'd love to see what the physical V5 says, I imagine Vehicle Make is probably just blank LOL

I think I've seen it in the distance a couple of times but this was the first time it's been close enough for a photo. It does about 5000 miles a year so it's getting a decent amount of use.

Have you seen the Bond Bug that lives in Buckingham? That was out and about today too - much respect to the owner for driving it in the winter.

Pretty sure I've seen that at a distance once or twice at least.  Though yeah, must have been a bit chilly today!

Is that another Bug that lives in Buckingham or the one Steeple Claydon that has been to see us at the FoD?

This Rover P4 is parked on a road on a housing estate near to my new digs.  Is it a 75? It must have been parked there for at least 10 years judging by the weeds. I am surprised that City Council haven't taken action against it as on street/pavement parking is a bit tight. The van behind it appears to be abandoned too.

There's also a Jaguar XJS in the front garden of another house under a cat piss tarp. And a stripped down henna BMW E30 at another.

Seen yesterday. I wondered how a Silver Shadow had ended up in a decrepit shed at a garden centre with a load of pallets chucked on it, in a lamentable fall from grace. Then I realised it was a Volvo 164. I was massively hungover to be fair. Interior on the Wannabango looked in decent enough order. I don't think I've ever seen one like that before. Guessing based on summat Yank?
