No photos sadly, but a very rare sight driving down Tewkesbury High Street this afternoon.

A plastic bodied three wheeler, not one of Tamworth's finest, nor from Bond or any one like that.

Strictly I guess it wasn't a car either, a little Sinclair C5. In retrospect who thought they were a good idea?

The Scimitar SS1 is not so much a car as a lifestyle statement; it basically says "I'm mad, and I don't care".

square looking front end, kinda 50s /60s styling

EDIT

and day glo orange AUDI R8

decent weather, more motor bikes than could shake a stick at as headed over the 'Cairn-o-Mount' (and a few brave souls on pUSH bikes, and it's a lot of 1 in 7 or 8, up then down !!!

push bikes doing 40mph and I guess hanging onto the brakes (and bottom? ) :-)

I saw a mk2 on wires, in Tesco’s yesterday - I think it was the same one pictured on the Prescott hill climb Facebook page the day before?

There was a lovely black 300SL roadster at the roundabout at the bottom of Birdlip hill half an hour ago :clap:

An unveiling of a full size replica bronze Model T in Fort William on Saturday 19th May. Thought to be the first one of its kind in the world.

To honor the accent of a Model T, similar to that pictured, which scaled the height of Ben Nevis in 1911 as a Ford PR stunt. Amazingly, before heading homeward, after traveling up and down the cart track the only attention it required was some adjustment to the brakes.

Just a few of the fifty-two Model T on parade. The drivers were offered a limited edition dram produced specially by the Ben Nevis Distillery, ice was added to the quaich in the form of fresh snow from the top of the Ben - a nice touch 8)

A bit late with this one, as I spotted it on Wednesday evening : a bright green Gilbern Invader in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.
