Cheers for that Julian. Love those 60s/70s Japs.

Having been stripped to the metal and had lots of rust replaced with steel over the past year then the body is currently top notch.

Need to get it on a rolling road though to sort the carbs and cam timing settings. It's running too rich and there is a hole in the power at 5000revs which is a pity as that's when it sounds really good.

Spied an immaculate bright red Jaguar XK150 Convertible in Boroughbridge this afternoon. It was in Morrisons Supermarket car park though rather than on the open highway! thumbup

Saw a convoy of Red Triumph TR6 PI and Red MGB Roadster with wire wheels on the A1M today. Also a rather unpleasant Brown late 1960s Jaguar S-Type sat in traffic on the M62 - not a fetching hue!

Isn't it amazing how low and sleek that Triumph (which was a large car in its day) looks compared to the Peugeot (a bog standard hatch) next to it.

yes i did notice that, had a very purposeful stance to it!

saw an immaculate red MGA in a little village just outside Potton and Wrestlingworth earlier and a nice light Blue BGT outside a house in Potton!

had a look round a stunning White Healey 3000 MK3 at the A1 southbound services earlier today, looked to be in great condition,





i do love a big Healey it must be said! cloud9

this was parked in the same area, just over the road. a bit rough and ready but still worthy of a mention IMO,



(BTW Dink, i will have a go at resizing sometime mate!)

Saw a nice Audi Quattro on the way home from school, and saw a very clean MGB Roadster too.

saw 2 particularly nice classics out today on my travels,

came out of the little chef opposite the A1 Black Cat roundabout at Wyboston earlier today to find this beautiful Volvo P1800 parked next to us,



what great looking cars these are up close, lovely flowing lines except this one's boot was propped open with what appeared to be parts from another old classic.

then just up the road at the Roxton Garden centre i found this lovely old Lancia Fulvia 2C outside,



it was in truly excellent condition, the body/paint work was flawless and it appeared to be a well used example too having covered a trip down to the annual Lancia gathering in Milan recently and some driving tours in Portugal!

Stunning Old English White Mercedes 190SL Roadster cruising along on the M1 north of Leeds today. I followed it for several miles as the driver kept having some fun - flying past - then slowing again. It stood out amongst all the Euroboxes.

That would be a P1800 there, the ES is the estate.

Sorry! nerd

saw a nice MK2 Midget yesterday afternoon near the Brampton hut that appeared to be in the process of a rolling restoration (paintwork was stripped down on the bonnet and wings)
