Spottings from the rootes_arrow1725 18.09.2011

Recommended Posts

Fred and Simmo were kind enough to bump up a load of proper threads to keep us alive, so round of applause to those two I think!

They meant well, but not sure it's the answer. :(

Good enough until a Mod turns up to clear the crap away. If you were drowning, would you reject the tyre thrown for you to cling onto because it was a Sava not a Goodrich? Didn't think so. That's why we drive shite cars, because they're good enough. Mostly.

 

And sorry if the tone of that looks a bit harsh, I didn't mean it to.

The Strada pick up is based on the Fiat Palio. It was the replacement for the Fiorino pick-up on mainland Europe.

Superb stuff as usual, is the old Seddon still working for a living?

 

Also, proper qual wing 'repair' on the Lagonda... I assume it's a parts car for a running one? Wasn't one of the guv'nors looking for one of these for a mate a while back?

Lagonda was bought for its wheels as the previous owner would not split allthough they had kept the engine and box. There were 2 Lagondas but 1 has been cut up and weighed in. Seddon is used nearly every day and he's not afraid to use it for long trips either. 8)

I've seen that Seddon at a couple of Abbey Pumping Station events, nice to see it gets out 'n' about.

 

I saw that Fiat pick-up tonight on the way home from work, there was a white one knocking around Leicester a couple of years ago, I think it lived just off Braunstone Lane, saw it parked up a few times. Funnily enough they're the only 2 I can ever remember seeing.
