Smoke grey convertible drove past my house yesterday while I was working on my exhaust.
Looked very nice with the hood down!
I gave a toot on the horn, but the driver didn't appear to notice! :p

:lol: I wanted to park up & have a look, but instead I stalled and decided not the best idea to park on double yellow lines by a left turn. :lol:

Rose taupe 2-door (I think, but could have been a 4)
Got behind me at the roundabout by the total garage in aston Clinton today.
It was carrying a young family as far as I could see, who all waved vigorously!!!
I then pulled into my drive 100yrds later.

i wouldn't call it very pretty :lol: i've seen it close up!

it's owned by the current chairman of the birmingham branch. i believe about 3 weeks ago it didnt have much in the way of a cab. he picked it up from a scrap yard having been under a lorry :o

he threw it together and got an MoT on it in the space of 2 weeks and got it to our branch rally last weekend!

Minor convertible spotted on Top Gear!

When the F40 breaks down in a cloud of smoke and they push it into their garage (bet the blue convertible with beige roof could do a lap of the track no problem!)

http://www.streetfire.net/video/t...r-s ... 205540.htm

10:45- 10:48 next to a Beetle, obviously someone on the Top Gear team is a Moggie fan! (Obviously not Clarkson's car).
Cheers John - all comments IMHO

Keep seeing this Amazing cream van driving around Epsom, Surrey. Iwonder if he'd be up for a swap for a traveller project?
