GHT, yes, Rich Dick beat me to the posting of that link to the repository of embarrassing MOT test outcomes, a most useful resource when one is about to buy a vehicle from the private seller who claimed in their classified advert that the car had never seen a welding torch and was perfect and original.

JB I didn't go looking for the current fleet, they just sort of followed me home and now they won't leave without an extradition order from the Japanese government..

A friend of mine has been a military re-enactor for as long as I can remember, he has always had military vehicles but recently he hankered after something different. After getting a very good price for his Willys Jeep, he looked around and found an amazing 1946 Plymouth. The young chap who had it before had turned it into a rat-rod, but not very convincing.
My mate and a second friend did a basic restoration, outside, on his drive, with no more than rattle can paint and a great deal of effort.

There's an XJS (under a cover) now parked on our road .. the owner normally has this parked on his driveway but the builder's are in. Can't see much of it as it's under a partial cover!

Also spotted an Alfa Junior on the M40 last Sunday .. but very non-standard .. build by the team at Retropower .. https://retropower.net/2018/02/05/milli ... gt-junior/
