I saw a C3 today, with a plate I hope belongs to a forum member. OV60 FCF. You can see why I noticed it.

Two of note today.

Tidy looking dark metallic blue N plate 406 in the car park at Cranfield University around 14:00 this afternoon. Then around 15:00 spotted a J plate Pug 205 GTi in white turning from Burnham Drive onto Dansteed Way in Milton Keynes. Didn't get a decent look at it, but looked tidy from a distance!

Just a few minutes ago saw a dark metallic green BX estate on a L plate pulling out of the Centre car park in MK. Anyone on here?

Nice light blue 2CV spotted on display at the Stony Stratford Classic Car Festival today and a lovely Peugeot 304 Cabriolet. Photos to follow tomorrow when I've had a chance to offload them all from the camera. Heard a couple of people mentioning a DS but sadly never managed to find it before I had to leave.

Yesterday I say a burgundy and grey DS estate on the A27 just south of Lewes. I was not able to get close enough to record its registration, but it looked nice.

Whole host of DS's on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, though this was my favourite of the bunch.

Realised afterwards that I should have taken a wider photo of all of them!

This evening's one was an immaculate looking bright yellow Xsara on an 02 plate parked in the bottom floor of Sainsburys today. Must be an enthusiast's car given the condition I reckon.

Think it was day before yesterday actually, but spotted a silver P plate S1 Xantia Estate in Neath Hill Local Centre. Gave a wave but got no response.

Also a couple of days ago, a red L plate BX Estate was spotted on the M25 while I was heading towards Heathrow. We traded places a few times in the inevitable queue. According to the stickers, it was taking part in an event called the Screw-Ball Rally.

P Plate silver Xantia spotted again in the City Centre this time. I missed it, but my husband spotted a metallic green Xantia when we were on a dog walk over by the Black Horse Inn on Sunday. Reckon it might be the same one I spotted up by Stacy Bushes a while ago.

Another one today - dark red metallic T plate Xantia hatch spotted exiting Kingston Tesco this evening. I was just walking out the door so didn't get a good look - but reckon it had a HDi badge on the bootlid. Another red one in our area?
