This S500e parked next to the SS1 today. I understand currently that, insurance permitting, someone could go from learning in an SS1 and Fiesta instructors car to one of these on the same licence but would need a to take a second test to upgrade from an A2 bike to something more powerful.

In Leek in last few days...Immaculate white Zephyr 6 ('C' plate) on a transporter with an early Golf in front of it in that rather strange hue of mid/lightish green. The Ford had some chrome wheels on that were not to my taste. A primrose V12 E-type parked down a side road. A topless early seventies chrome-bumpered Midget driving towards Leek. A maroon Wolseley of the 1300 variety - looked very tidy, being driven but stuck in traffic. A couple of other things but can't remember now...

On the way to theResto show at the NEC spotted this odd looking E-type
Image

Drew closer and discovered it wasn't but a Rochdale

Bit later on came across a VW bus camper thingy which I believe some are quite attracted to for some odd reason, slow noisy and bloody expensive, you can book a good few weeks in a HOTEL instead and get there faster to boot
