This is a Triumph Rocket 3 which I saw a couple of years ago.
A BMW, and not a Hofmeister kink in sight. Also missing: valves, a water pump
Conrod from a (replica) Honda RC 166 engine. Six cylinders, 250cc, 60 odd bhp at 18,000 or so rpm, originally made more than fifty years ago.
Mondeo hybrid. Rarely seen because up to now Mondeos here have been almost entirely diesel.
Also: yes, you can tow quite big things with a perfectly ordinary van.
Jag XJ40 from 1988.
One of the best cars to take on a road trip across Ethiopia is a....
Mack truck. Not sold here (trucks with sticky-out fronts are unsuitable for haulage here) so must have been imported as a complete package with the drilling rig.
I saw this splendid bovine specimen today. Would you call it a cow?
BMW 220d convertible. Yes, there were several diesel convertibles available. Mercedes did an SLK diesel.
Never commonly seen but now maybe once a year
This stuff. What the Americans call “hard cider” and the rest of us just call cider.
It might be in a bag, but I’m sure we recognise it.
No, not just D Day.
I had thought this was a Daimler SP250, a rare sight even when new:
Something called a Ford F500. No, me neither. Lucas headlights so I’m guessing from Ford UK.
Cortina MkIV facelift from 1982. Unfortunately it doesn’t bear close inspection as the tinworm is taking hold - sills rotting out from inside which never ends well. There’s a sticker in the window proclaiming that it’s had Ziebart rust protection but that only goes so far.
