Looked at a TVR Chimera in a storage facility yesterday (spit and polish job for Rich "posh twit" March) and next to it was a Fiat 132. My dad had one in the 80s after his 131 supermiafiori rusted away :-)

My son has a pre cat TVR Griffith , I tell him it gets 30 to the gallon as a journey of a 100 miles always means a return journey home via the RAC

While walking round sunny Leamington Spa today, I passed 'Murphy's Bar and Emporium'. I didn't catch it on camera, but when we got nearer, the old TV Batman theme started blasting out and a short man dressed as Batman came charging out of the bar to the three wheeler. All of this was lost on my 13 year old daughter.

Apparently, if you change the engine and gearbox out for something more modern (Corvette 6.2) you get 20 mpg + ..

About a dozen Morgans on the B9015 between Rothes and Fochabers this afternoon. No photos as I was driving, and, yes, at least 2 had MOG plates! :D

Could have been but I can't find anything online about it. :?
Probably the most Morgans I have seen together at any time. :)

In Leek passing me in opposite direction, today, was a mint-looking mid/late-sixties Sunbeam Alpine in bright red with a black soft top in position, despite the sunshine - we exchanged a wave.

Can't resist putting this picture up (I've already posted it on the Drive-It Day thread).
Well, it is a Non-Scimitar, isn't it! :D
