Spotted on Sunday at the Pre 65 Motocross scramble at Gosfield Suffolk, Ginetta G20 in orange with black roof, in the public car park; could not find the owner anyone on here?

Not your usual PH spot. Spotted today at 17:10 going Eastbound on A14 at Beacon Hill....a Spitfire...NOT A TRIUMPH SPITFIRE but a full sized mock up WW2 plane, minus wings on the back of a trailer. Something you don't see everyday.

Tonight, A14 round Ipswich (crossing the Gipping at Sproughton actually), Eastbound, some weird car. It was maroon. Looked a bit like a Squared off TVR Grantura, but with an AMC Pacer front. Looked too good to be a kit car, but ...any clues?!

Also some kind of hotrod thing near Stowmarket - no engine cover/bonnet. I just saw it over the crash barrier. Looked well.

Had a little bit of a run behind a grey 335i coupe between Ixworth and Thetford. Little pistonheads badge on the bootlid.

Got a feeling I've seen it out and about on runs.

I saw a Mclaren 720S on the A17 near Kings Lynn yesterday. It was getting dark and I could see the light in the distance getting closer. Those things look good day or night.

A wonderful H-reg Alfa 75 in a dark silver/grey in superb condition at Thickthorn, south of Norwich on Tuesday night.
Gave the chap a wave in the hope of hearing some lovely Alfa engine goodness under the bridge. I wasn't disappointed, thank you earscloud9

It was then a lovely brisk drive down the A11 until we turned off at Wymondham drivingthumbup
