My late Grandfather lived in Huntley - fond memories of a couple of holidays up there. I remember the odd pint of Carlsberg in 'The Crown' .......run by Bob McLennan - 45yrs. later I believe his son, Frank, still runs it with his family!

On the road to Macclesfield, on Sunday, a green Mk.2 Jag. The driver waved at me - I was in the SE5.

Forgot these were on my phone - popped to Tesco's the other day and this fester was parked up (I think the owner works there as it's there fairly regularly and for much of the day)

and in a colour coordinated kind of way, this TR8 was a few yards away :-)

A genuine TR8...Cor, that's a rare spot - lovely looking as well...like the combined colour scheme; very harmonious...
