Unusual to see a TVR in a BCA site.

The battery on a Tuscan is just behind the passenger side front wheel and that looks like a battery charger next to it!

You would be correct!

Luckily it wasn't one of my jobs.

The Silver Cloud just gets better looking as time goes on. What a lovely elegant motor.

Probably no bigger than most family SUVs these days, either.

Thought it was a Shadow. Only got a very quick look. Changed it now.


Thank you.

It was beautiful. Just seemed to float down the road. No noise. No shouty look at me. Just, as you say, elegant.

Cars can stay idle at car auction sites for several weeks, so battery charger packs are dotted around everywhere just in case. It doesn't necessarily mean this is one is being used specifically on the TVR or the BMW next to it.

Side from the fact the wheel is turned for access and you can see the cable going up to the battery you mean? wink

Big deal so an old car which has probably been hanging around and shunted about numerous times needed a battery pack to start.

Cars as young as 2 years which have been standing around often need battery packs.

A non event.

I'm not sure anyone was making an "event" out of it. Just an observation.

Curious choice of hill to die on today.

Nobody made an event out of it, but thanks for the input.

If it didn’t start due to a dead battery, it’d be classed as a non starter, not a non event. wink

No picture as I was driving and on other side of dual carriageway.

A27 earlier today (about 2ish) approaching Lyons Farm traffic lights in Worthing.

Red Maserati BiTurbo Spider (roof up).

Good bloody shout sir. So nice to see a 90s Wedge

Very possibly someone collecting this; https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/1987-maserati-... considering the location.

Remember back in the day my Dad being loaned the Meridien demonstrator one of those from Lyndhurst for a weekend IIRC. Their demo reg was TOY 123 (or 123 TOY) and they were trying to tempt my Dad out of his pre-order for a Mercedes E320 convertible as at that stage Mercedes had taken the order based on only a rumour that Mercedes would build a 300CE (as the model was pre-E series) convertible. I wanted him to buy the Maserati but alas he didn't, kept the order for the Merc which was subsequently built and he still has in the garage to this day.

Ah, memories. As you were.

Still remember seeing a silver one of those years ago in the local Tesco's car park. There it was, all anonymous, minding its business, and then I come along all open-mouthed... biggrin
