A bit off topic, OK very off topic, here are a couple of things I saw today that made an impression;[frame]Image[/frame][frame]Image[/frame]

The first I thought was a squashed football, it's that big! More purple and less pink than it looks in that picture.

The second one looked a bit like a deformed hand reaching out from the ground :o Both had quite thick stems, about half the cross section of my wrist.

Any mycologists around?

Kaki green ex-military LHD Traveller in garage in Rennes, France for break repairs - local number - the garage owner told me that its been over here "a couple of years" As garage was closing today for summer holidays so wasn't able to get more info - will return in September.

Saw a very cute white one going towards Rochdale from Bury on Thursday at around 7ish, i believe the reg HYK399C, I was two cars back not in Fang seriously annoying the girl driving me.
Today I also saw a little blue one near Rufford Hall somewhere near Southport, I tried to wave but sadly I wasn't in Fang again

Saw three in south Norfolk today (2nd Aug)! First was a light blue saloon near Mulbarton, the second was a black saloon travelling north on the A140 near Swainsthorpe and this evening I saw a dark blue Traveller heading towards Pulham Market.

I went to the Gloucestershire Steam Extravaganza at South Cerney yesterday - there were about 10 Minors there including a very nice 1957 Sage Green 4 door that was being raffled off by the "Friends of Atwell-Wilson Motor Museum"

White 2-door saloon parked up on Southwold sea-front yesterday - may belong to a shop worker?

White 'C' reg.Traveller in Southwold High Street this morning. Missing it's rear bumper, 'original' paint.

Plus, a few days ago parked at the Southwold Harbour.
A white convertible in good condition. Apparently looked standard (not seen or heard by me) but had twin tail-pipes. Also had 'Sport' stickers by the bonnet scripts and on the boot. I would love to know more...............


Anyone on here?

I saw Phipps today ;)

I also saw a traveller in Halesowen today, going up Furnace Lane, zipped round the roundabout to see if I could catch up, but alas, was too slow! Could have been smoke grey. Drove round loking for it this aternoon because I had nothing better to do on my way back from the doctors!

Spotted a white saloon parked up in a side street today while driving down Derby road, Stapleford. I didn't get a good look at it as I was too busy trying to negotiate the horendous speed bumps.

I also saw a (frilford?) grey 2-door (1959 I assume) parked at the side of Afreton road around Hyson green, Nottingham. reg 1109 CD and had a dent in the rear wing. Looked like it was still just using the trafficators too.

I just saw an almond green saloon MVV 335H, parked on a driveway down my street in kingsthorpe Nothampton. It's a Northampton registration so it probably means it hasn't had many previous owners.
