Actually spotted yesterday, but was too tired to post the images up. After returning from Linconshire with my latest purchase, and after dropping off the self-drive transporter, I spotted the following on the way home
Black Traveller heading towards Horsham at about 5 o'clock (picture taken from car video cam)[frame]Image[/frame]
Next, on the B3000, through Puttenham at 17:35 - a Dove Grey and white bits Traveller, heading away from the A31[frame]Image[/frame]
Anyone on this messageboard?
And finally, spotted on my driveway (via the cam cam, so not a good shot), a Series MM Hi-light[frame]Image[/frame]

Spotted blue LCV on Hawley Road, heading towards Farnborough Rd (A325) on way home yesterday evening - cropped still from Car Cam below (didn't have time to swivel lens around as busy rubbing my eye!).[frame]Image[/frame]
Not seen this one before - anyone from MMOC?

On Wednesday 17th just before 1.30pm I spotted a nice G Reg Trafalgar blue saloon heading out of Ipswich towards Woodbridge. No point in waving as I was in my Ford Focus going the other way!

that old trout, the ex!

I made the best decision years ago to trade her in for a younger, better looking model!

Ampwhu, which post are you referring to?

Another one spotted on my way back from my Friday shop at the giant Tesco Extra in Sandhurst.
A very tidy Dove Grey 2-door crossing the Fernhill Rd juntion on the Hawley Lane at 19:18[frame]Image[/frame]going at quite a respectable pace (must be a 1098 at least) - anyone on this site?

Anyone here with a C reg saloon with minilites or similar, doing about 65mph on the A1 just north of Newark around 11:00 last night (19th July)? If so can I apologise for flashing him back into lane when in fact he had spotted before me that there were roadworks ahead closing off the inside lane. My excuse is that I had been driving ten hours back from France (not in my Traveller) and I wasn't being impatient, just overexcited at seeing a Mog going so well. Really good headlights and rear lights by the way...

A very beautiful Pick-up parked next to me at The Mid-Suffolk Light Railway in Suffolk today. Later a grey early grill split screen saloon parked the other side of my MGB GT.
The Pick up was once in very poor condition but has been rebuilt twice. The owners have had it for over 30 years and mileage is in excess of 300,000 miles!

Saw a very nice sage green saloon on the M25 near St Albans this morning and a lovely bright red convertible with tan hood and black wire/alloy wheels in Hanbury, Worcs this afternoon. Driver was wearing a natty panama hat :D

I don't know of the red one you speak, but it sounds a lot like another minor that used to frequent local shows. It was a black convertible with tan hood and silver wire wheels. Been off the scene for a while. I wonder if it's had a makeover in a new colour scheme!

I suppose it could be the same car. I only got a glimpse of it but it looked to me like it had black wire wheels with whitewall tyres although others I were with thought that they looked like black & silver alloys.

There was a nicely modified E Reg 2 door at Easton Farm Park in Suffolk today. Marina wheels, disc brakes, 5 speed gearbox, high ratio differential and Metro seats. Very good body with no rust.

Sounds like it was this one in the restoration forum: http://www.mmoc.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=51302

Spotted this morning whilst taking a detour on way to work to buy a Clutch relay kit from Moss Europe, in Hanworth, a 1960 Black Traveller, clap-hands wipers, but one-piece screen, most likely still with original 948cc engine. Had a quick chat with the elderly driver, who was also there to buy spares.[frame]Image[/frame]

Spotted Saturday afternoon, about 17:20 in the village of Compton (near A3), an Old English White Taveller, done up as a Wedding Car, outside a Pub that was obviously hosting a Reception - sadly, no pictures as my CarCam mount had fallen apart.
However, today at about 12:30, spotted on the Hawley Rd, going from Farnborough Rd to Chapel Lane, an Almond Green 4-dr saloon, driven by a young lady. Have seen this car twice before, but never waved etc., as wasn't in a Moggy at the time.[frame]Image[/frame]

A bit late but spotted on Saturday 3rd on the A23 London just before midday in close succession - first a late 60s white saloon turning out of Vassell Road onto Brixton Road, then a mile further south a black late Series II saloon driving north just next to Lambeth Town hall. Mad waving by all on both occasions :D (I was in Dodo with the roof down)

Saw a very tidy looking Almond Green two door saloon driving down Esher High St this morning. Lady driver, exchanged waves.
