About 11.00 this morning - Not quite a "car" I know but it brought back so many memories of early primary school trips that I had to post it (moderators can always remove it if need be):

SOLD: 1978 SE6a Auto.
1997 Ducati 900SS - Last carb. model.
1960 BSA Bantam D7 - more "fun" than the Ducati.
1998 Honda CG125 - great in slow traffic.
1981 Suzuki SB200 2-stroke twin - undergoing rebuild.

Saw this at the lights yesterday - with a pickup rear!

Not sure if it had broken down or he was just checking the ton of logs that were in the back?

Also saw a TR6 and what I think was a Lancia 2000 in Ilchester, a series 1 Bristol 411 near Street and a Citroen BX on the M5 northbound.
