Went to a show today and saw things on show.
When you look out of your small car to see an even shorter one.
Mediaeval roof design, to be specific. Not something we’d normally concern ourselves with until a fine example went up in flames in Paris this week.
Land Rover lightweight, for military use. Originally designed to be helicopter transportable.
No, not a Volvo.
Seems Tesla have a way to go here yet.
Driving along today minding my own business when I heard an unexpected rumbling sound from behind my left ear. This can be a Bad Thing when you drive a rear engined car because it may mean that all kinds of expensive issues are happening to your engine.
Want to tow your Bentley Continental race car to the racing? Why, use your 1931 Blower Bentley (the blower is just above the number plate) of course. What else would be appropriate?
The Austin Apache.
This is a Lister Jaguar from the late 1950s.
London is introducing an Ultra Low Emission Zone which charges petrol cars that don’t meet at least Euro 4 emissions standards and diesels that don’t meet the much later Euro 6 (because we have to demonise diesels now). As a rule of thumb, you’ll need a petrol car made after about 2005 or a diesel made after about…
No, I haven’t a clue. Peugeot 205 rear lights though.
Smashed avocado on toast with greenery and optional fried eggs to provide some protein.
A blast from 2010 to be exact. First time turning this old PC on since then.
Hyundai Getz, Daewoo something, Alfa 156, Volvo S40. Judging by the flatness of their tyres none of these are going anywhere except the tin can trade.
Merc W114 200. It’s been resprayed but otherwise seems original (and deteriorating, as will happen to an old car being daily driven).
Pink, to be specific. Like this cute Honda. A visual feast in a sea of greyness and blackness.
These two, bought in anticipation of having to change a battery. A set of tools to open a phone and as it’s insufficient for the purpose on its own a bit and driver set including the all-important T2 size. You don’t see those too often.
