Basingstoke – Yellow SE6a...

Post by scim_rebel » Sun Jun 03, 2018 10:39 am

...spotted in the Daneshill area a couple of days ago. Not seen it in the locality before; quite a distinctive looking car as it appeared to have a brown vinyl roof. Didn't get the registration as I was the other side of the roundabout.

Nice to see one out and about!

Hi Carl I’ve not seen that one. There is a beige one in old basing though. Simon

Ah – I reckon that is more than likely to be the same one! In my defence, it was only a quick glimpse... :D

Do you know the owner?

The VIN says Celtic brown but that’s buckskin I think?

I have not met the owner yet. I have driven past in mine a few times to see if he appears!

Spotted this afternoon coming from Old Basing, under the railway bridge towards the industrial estate. Too dark under the bridge to see the driver :?
