Shame it had to be one of those horrible things.
He was driving like a (-expletive removed-) as well, slaloming through the rest of the traffic. Over the speed limit too, naturally.

I was in Cheltenham this morning, and I spotted two dark coloured Kias'. Neither were electric (no green flash on the number plates), followed by a bright red Kia Sportage in the dentist next door to me.

Getting towards the end of the month, and the natural expiry of the the 71 reg spotting thread.

Still time to make a contribution/ click the shutter.

Saw another one yesterday a Skoda something or other, ready to ship out to a customer seeing as it had the new plates on.

Was followed by a T3 on a 71 yesterday, and I saw a Toyota Hilux Ford Ranger down the road the other day. Went into Glasgow on Sat, didn't notice any on the trip.

SMMT sharpening their pencils for an October whinge when the "new reg" Septmber sales figures come out. ?

The FCF scientific New Reg Month spotting thread from contributors across the length and breath of the UK may point to that.

Still less cars on the road is a good thing? Would be easier to get about, and fewer fuel crises, and we would probably already have enough tanker drivers if there were 10 million less cars on the road.

Audi e-tron.
Roads were packed so probably missed loads.

Last chance to break your 71 reg spotting duck, or contribute some more last day spots. Thread expires today, barring the extensive statistical analysis, and ludicrous conclusions.
