2 Bond Bugs at Keswick this afternoon. The Orange one, sorry, Tangerine I was told, was on Wheeler Dealers and has been signed by Mike Brewer and Ed China.

I was the meat in a red Ferrari California / white Maserati Levant sandwich this morning, M8 from Hermiston Gate to Livingston. Both on trade plates. The Ferrari was ahead of me and sounded rather nice. First Levant I've seen, can't imagine it will be a common sight.

Taggarts Maryhill? It's been there for about 9 months and hasn't turned a wheel. Looking quite sad

Yep. In looking at new Discovery 5 to see if it would be the replacement for our Disco 4 (at some point).

Decided probably not :? Some nicer styling elements, but also some areas where the older car is better.

Managed to spot a yellow Mach 1 mustang going towards the Gyle on Sunday.

Looked similar to this:

Orange Capri going into Livingston today. Probably a 3.0S as if my Ford brochure memory serves me right you could only get the orange in the 3.0S?

Spotted this beauty on the way home from work tonight.

Absolutely stunning AC 428, near 50 years old and looked as if it had just driven out of the showroom.

Spoke to the driver through open window's, this is a special car, his fun car is a McLaren 540

+3 car points for remembering a detail of that insignificance from a 30 year old catalogue.
Chapeau!

Three today on Holburn Street while getting some lunch.

Rarest was an Alfa RZ with the roof down (doesn't even rate a mention in "how many left" - can't imagine there's more than a handful in the UK).

A real Mini on an H plate which makes it 1970?

An earlyish Range Rover (E plate so 87?)
Toyota Aygo (Puddlejumper 4)
Now in stealth mode (well almost)
