What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Post by cannonball » Wed Aug 29, 2018 10:46 am

Saw this last night in Inverness and although it's not quite a car it's a bit of a rarity and may be of interest. Just after I took the first pic it fired up and passed by in the next street.

I saw one a few years ago at Beaulieu autojumble (outside the auction tent) - I had no idea Airstream ever did a motorhome!

Airstream are better known for their caravans generally?

They’re famous for alloy caravans. Formed in the 40s, they didn’t make a motorhome until 1974 (slow seller and discontinued in 1979) and have only made a few since (the land yacht and interstate touring coach).

drove earlier less than 1/4 mile and saw 2 no V reg MG BGTs separately, one white, one black, how weird is that...
Question.... what will happen to all the classic cars and their owners when petrol engines are banned from the roads ??? (Hope this hasn't been mentioned in the last 350 odd pages)

It will obviously start to cost more if you want to drive in city centres (assuming you’re not in a historic, exempt vehicle) but I don’t think there’s any specific plans to ban petrol engines :)
