The poor little pink Minor has sat outside that building for years. The building used to be a garage so the Minor was appropriate.
I used to drive past frequently and always felt sorry for the poor little car and hoped somebody would rescue her as it was upsetting to see the steady deterioration. Looks as if somebody has already had one rear lens. Must be lots of useful parts that could be used.

Went down to Highclere castle today (where Downton Abbey is filmed). Right near the castle in the village was a lovely looking green convertible waiting to turn right and pull out behind me.

Hoping he may have been going to the castle, as I would have been over for a 'minor' chat.

Those fog lamps are a bit distinctive - perhaps you should have covered those up as well! :lol: :roll:

Passed us in the modern today on the A38 south of Burton on Trent, chased him at 70mph and only caught up as he turned off towards Lichfield. Goes really well and love the wheels (excuse high speed photo)! Reg XLL199G.

'Cos I like to see other Minors, don't you? Think you'll find you get a lot of attention when your Traveller is on the road....

Spotted yesterday what looked like a minor van parked behind the campervan garage on A34 near the wendlebury turnoff (though it had been replaced by a fiesta today :roll: ). And tonight around 8pm I passed what looked like a grey series 2 saloon OHR 860 on the A43 near Towcester.
