Bit of an unusual one these days.

Spotted a first generation Renault Espace this afternoon in the Stacey Bushes Industrial Estate. Was on a D plate I think, but didn't get that good a look.

Ahh, that would have been the old original GRP Matra ones. Absolutely brilliant. I rated those as the best Espace...

Yep, that's the one. This one was a slightly gold tinted silver colour in case you spot it.

Uncle used to have one a good few years back and I remember being impressed by it, especially in terms of comfort and its ability to make seemingly unfeasibly rapid progress on the motorway.

Saw a maroon W Reg Hdi Xantia in the Stoney Street NCP Multi-Storey car park in the Lace District of Nottingham today. Looked very tidy...

I regularly see a green R reg Athena which looks immaculate in Mickleton, Gloucestershire. Sometimes it's there other times not so is presumably used regularly. Anyone on here?

Spotted my first BX in a-g-e-s on Thursday, and right on my doorstep. Grey 1.7 diesel K197BAN on the M62 at J32 - and he wasn't hanging about!

Just exchanged waves with the driver of a dark coloured Xantia as they were turning into the Heelands area of MK. Don't think I've seen that one before.

What's that then?

Curious to know whether it was someone on here I saw today, given I got a proper arm out the window wave I tend to assume that it was an enthusiast. First time I've had response in the Citroen, usually only the Saab I get that. Well...or the Skoda, but when you're in that virtually everyone waves at you irrespective of what they drive!

Bright red L plate 205 spotted just outside Banbury today, looked tidy from the glance I got.
