Thought this might be appreciated by some on here.

Neat little Lancia, Arbroath yesterday - one that has escaped the salty Angus and Aberdeenshire roads.

SOLD: 1978 SE6a Auto.
1997 Ducati 900SS - Last carb. model.
1960 BSA Bantam D7 - more "fun" than the Ducati.
1998 Honda CG125 - great in slow traffic.
1981 Suzuki SB200 2-stroke twin - undergoing rebuild.

Lovely Lancia! I remember there was one of those rusting away in a yard somewhere in Dundee many, many years ago. Same colour as that as well.

And in the same neck of the woods (kind of) I got a wave from the driver of a white Bond Equipe GT4S on the outskirts of Dundee (just outside Invergowrie) yesterday.

When getting C30 back from MoT
spotted a VERY well presented 1967 Alfa Giulia spider,

you could eat your dinner off any party of it!!!

the engine had been swapped out for two litre version of the twin cam and had been fully restored, new suspension disc brake conversion etc (though not sure if you need discs on the rear of such a light car) alloy rad, polished ports inside and lovely SS exhaust

plan was to drive it to Italy for use when at their 'holiday home', once the drive shaft bearings had been changed!! ( My how the other half live :wink: )

I saw it with camouflage - I’m sure it will sell well - but not to ex-defender owners :D

new looking BMW alpina 7 series, not being an afficianado, didn't think they were still an option, just assumed that the 'M' badge was sufficient . . . . .
obviously not :?

A very tidy Herald with a serious twin exhaust on the hard shoulder of the M1 north by Leicester Forest services this evening. Just after I’d been passed by a (almost) new Rolls Royce convertible.

A Citroen GS (might have been a GSA) towing a caravan on the A50 at Uttoxeter.
