Just saw a TR7 complete bodyshell in what looked liked BRG on a trailer on Shrewsbury bypass. Not thebusual rot box, looked a good example

That Imp lives at the Second Hand shop opposite the Gym on Victoria Road in Fenton most of the time. See it around the Stoke area quite often so most certainly well used. Even had a trailer on it at the weekend!

A white Humber Sceptre Mk4 (Arrows) on the M1 south this morning. Joined the motorway quite sedately, then went flying past me shortly after at 70-something mph...

I guessed the imp was local as it was a relatively young man getting his breakfast (or so it appeared) on the way to work.. nice to see it used as a daily.

cant believe that 4 of us young lads used to go out in one all the time. they look so small. or maybe its just me that has got a lot bigger!! :roll:

That Hot Rod is so cool, but the Noble does nothing for me I'm afraid (much like most so-called "supercars". Prefer my SE4.

Mixture of good weather and “can’t go shopping as half the shops are shut” appears to brought the classics out - Rover P4, Moggie traveller, MGB being of note. The winner was a road-registered sidecar (it had a number plate on the back), very similar to this (even the same colour):
