Brown 6-Series near Llandow

Post by Korporal brunhausen » Thu Oct 24, 2019 5:15 pm

At Llandow village ,S Wales is orange Se6 reg ?MA 200P. The car is a VERY long time resident in the drive of a house near the Victoria pub in the neighbourhood of Sigginston.I first saw it there in 1980-81 ,tyres virtually melted to the drive, allegedly caught up in a long running legal type dispute. The car is about 100yds away from the crash site of rugby enthusiast plane returning from Dublin in the early 50s the worst air crash in Britain at the time.

Thanks Roger, apparently the full reg of this one is RMA 200P.
Per the DVLA the colour is shown as green (!) but it is definately orange, and has been since I first came across it in the very early 80s. That said it is turning green very gradually From exposure to the elements. In addition the DVLA say it was last taxed in 91....a strange set of circs altogether.
