Puxa, a 405 is DEFINITELY a bona fide classic now ;)

They were bangeromics once but not now...

I had a run up to the Lakeland Motor Museum yesterday, there were about 30 car's in attendance, only the 2 previously mentioned Citroen's. I stuck the C5 in the main car park


You may have noticed AA Box 553 on display at the museum, but one of the 19 still in their original roadside locations, was....a mere 18.5 miles away!

It is also one of the 5 remaining AA boxes in the FCF Challenge :-D

Well the final destination was in my neck of the woods but have only just realised tonight, that it was today (Saturday) the cars were at Bamburgh! All week I was imagining it was Sunday for some reason.

Nice photogenic finish for them.

Your average Stag owner wouldn't open the bonnet because if they knew what was under it - it would scare them too much! (this I know from a very good friend who was big in the SOC)

There do seem to be two sorts of Classic cars . . .
Those that the owners pay someone else to maintain and look after, and investing their money in;
Those whose the owners understand, work on, and invest their time in.

Having now received the July edition (subscriber, so not sure if it's in shops yet), I can now confirm that my Activa does appear in a couple of photos.
