I'd rather have the Dyane pickup if I'm totally honest Malcolm! How much is it for sale for?

Absolutely immaculate 306 Spinnaker in silver in the Morrison's underground car park this evening. Even the wheels and exhaust trim looked like it had just driven out of the showroom. Clearly a cherished car! Was on Irish plates so not sure of exact year.

Anyone here?

Silver R plate (I think) Xantia spotted yesterday afternoon just off J13 of the M1. Gave a wave, but don't think they saw me.

Possible. Not sure if it was listed elsewhere, will go check! This all depends if the last digit of the REG is the same, but i guess it's unlikely to be anything but that one!

No, very unlikely to be another as black is a relatively rare colour.

One we nearly bought a number of years ago was black. S1 car on an L plate, cyan and purple pinstripe denoting the special edition it was (Dimension sticks in my mind?), and a tan cloth interior which I thought looked great against the black.

Sadly we didn't have the cash needed at the time, ended up with a Fiat Panda 1000 instead - which credit to it was also a fantastic little car and never gave us any trouble the whole time we owned it save for a duff thermostat (which cost a fiver and took half an hour to fit). Would buy another one in a hesrtbeat if they hadn't started to fetch silly money like Metros and Novas have.
