I saw a scruffy Peugeot 309 being driven like it had been stolen this morning...

Please tell us that Inspector Clouseau was in hot pursuit, preferably in the same hat he's wearing in this photo, from a 1983 Pink Panther film:

Do all French cops wear these?

Are all licensed premises not closed and p*ssheads confined to barracks during this period of house arrest?

:lol: I shouldn't laugh. That finkucg Dyslexia must be a right ctnu to cope with. It's good to see that those living with the condition are doing proper work and keeping road markings up to date at this surreal time in human history.

What a treat! Last night, well yesterday evening whilst it was still quite light, I was heading up the A34 near Abingdon, coming the opposite way was a late 1920's Sports Tourer Bentley, and this was not out on a poseur's tour, he was in the outside lane giving it some serious welly. Talk about mixing it with the modern day traffic. Impossible to photograph, but it looked like this:

Always a treat to see a DS in the wild.

Was even more surprised to realise it wasn't one I recognise, and even more so that it's a RHD car, must be a rare beast these days.

:drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: ..And for anyone who hadn't already seen the position of the steering wheel, the registration number provides that information too! I don't remember ever having seen a DS in that stunning pastel colour. That said, you could paint a DS in one of BL's finest beiges and it would still be a desirable object.
Speaking of desirable, that poor unfortunate old-shape forward control Bongo (later known as E series) van must be saved. Sadly, they don't hold their values as strongly as Hiaces of the same era do, so while that means they can be really cheap forms of accommodation, storage or even personal transportation, that one's sure to come to its end once the current MOT expires on International Talk Like a Pirate Day, September the nineteenth. :cry:

Out and about today I saw a car like mine, well not exactly like mine, the one I saw is called a tourer, MG speak for rag top. I was unable to photograph it but a text to another owner led me to a website where I came across a photo of it:
