I was just passing through on my way back to the 'South Coast'. A much more pleasant encounter was with a nice guy at Warminster services filling up his (90's) Skyline. cool

Clutch of interesting cars in a lay-by on the A38 south of Berkely / Newport around 9.30am this morning: not sure where they were going or just an informal meet. But looked very eclectic.

A TVR T350 near Bristol Temple Meads this afternoon. The car was a sort of cascade/reflex gold colour. I was a few cars behind in the Evora

No pic as I was driving but saw a nice Fiat 500 Abarth in a deep blue colour at the Aztec West roundabout this morning, around 9am, complete with a smiley on the back.

Apart from Lord Grover who I've seen a few times, think this is only my second ever spot.... scratchchin

If you're still looking out for orange GT86 you may not spot me again. hehe
I switched to a black Z4 in February - number plates stickered.

OK so I never get any pics cos the guy's always driving the other way when I see him but there's an older gent who I often see driving round Exeter in proper vintage open-topped cars, look like 1930s-1950s era mostly and in fabulous condition, most of them I have no idea what they are apart from one that I think is a Bugatti. Yesterday he was out in some silver thing that looked like a plane witthout wings and had the most amazing offbeat engine noise. I must have seen him driving round about 15 times over the years but only ever in motion, never static which is a shame as I'd love to talk to him about some of his amazing machines! Anyone got any idea who I am talking about? He quite often has the full ensemble on, driving gloves, leather hat, goggles, the works.
I think I know who you mean. Somewhere I have a picture

Never mate. Anyone get's spotted and seeing other PH'er around is always good news. To know other petrolheads are still about.

My Kawasaki H2 will be out over the weekend for a last ride of the year. It has a few PH stickers on but you can' really see them unless your up close to the bike

To add I get spotted more over the South Wales part of PH as I spend most of my blasting times over there as it's much better than the south west for a hoon.

Yeah that looks like him! Some of the things I see him driving look like 1930s or 40s race cars and just really unusual stuff to see on the road and not a motor museum.
I want to still be haring around in classic sportsters when I get to his age wink

Just North of Holsworthy and Launceston this afternoon, a white R8. I was just as frustrated at the speed of traffic on my side of the road, too.

Were they Caterham 7 type cars and kit cars in general?

If so it was bunch of my mates on their way to a rendezvous at the Willy Wicket pub near Downend, Bristol and then on down to a car meet at Redhill near Lulsgate airport.

Sadly I could not join in that convoy.

Usual place for dog-walking spots: A390 between Callington and St Ann's Chapel, red 911 variant.
Lovely sounding and wide-bodied, though I only had a split second to check it out smile
