...sound like Florentine red to me - a good spot as you don't see many about! :)

Can't remember what reg it was can you, and where abouts it was - might know it?

There was a car parked behind it so i couldn't see much of it to get the reg.

I was surprised to see it as i never see CXs now. There was a red one around here with steel wheels and cheap wheel trim, dont think that was the one though.

There is a white S1 parked in a drive not too far away, it belongs to an elderly man who did use it every day. Its been parked in the drive for years now, sat under a loose fitting car cover. Its most likely rotten. We did used to service it years ago.

Edit: Saying that, it had the same wheels as the S1 in your picture in the cool pictures thread. It might have been a S1 then!. Ill have to have another drive past there at some point.

Just seen and passed a lovely condition beige Citroen Dyane about 3 o clock on the M60 southbound heading Oldham bound.

Amazing in the modern traffic. If it was you, i was in the GSF car parts VW Caddy :)

...bit of a guess but I think I know the car - lives just around the corner from me in March - see it quite a bit actually!

Well, I've had a feast today, been to Crewe, got waved at by a couple in a C5 on the way down there, pulled into Knutsford services to see a real 'blast from the past' a Datsun 120Y estate in the company of a Datsun 180B.

On the return leg, I spotted a red 2CV heading towards Crewe, then as I was heading north, I spotted a Green and Cream 'H' van on the back of a trailer.

At a guess, I'd say it stays with April, May and June for a few weeks each.

Yesterday i saw a very very tidy looking L reg Xantia TD in the light blue colour. It looked perfect, original wheel trims and mudflaps, not a mark to be seen. It had the chevrons on the bonnet, so may well have been a sinker.

Ive not seen it around before but it was in the town where I live.

309GTi's of any description are rare beasts these days, pre-facelift 3drs especially so.
