As mentioned in my Blog/Gallery, we went up to Buxton today and here's a couple of spots:

C-Crosser:

DS3 (actually was just behind the C-Crosser)

You're taking some very good pictures there Franklin. catching a DS3 outside a Mini dealer is a good 'un too...

I was amazed today when, driving down a motorway, I passed a black v-reg XM on the back of a car transporter, sitting under a new Alfa Giulietta. There was also an XM front bumper strapped just in front of the XM.

I recognized the XM from a recent advert, im sure it was on ebay, it has very unusual 3 spoke alloy wheels with 3 spokes on each spoke. It looked quite tidy and im thinking its on its way to a new home and not to the knackers yard.

Yes thats the one, can't be two wearing those awful Sabb wheels!

That was advertised not too far from me. Though that wasn't the car transporter that I saw it one, it was just a single car length but with a double height.

So its a 2.1TD auto with very low mileage, nice! CAT C recorded though and what with the bumper which I saw with the car its probably in need of a bit more repairs too. Needs a really good clean inside, look at the state of its carpets. How someone can complain about carpet wear when there is no mats down I don't know.

OK so I'm waiting to board the Stena HSS back to Belfast when THIS rolls off!!!

Couldn't quite believe it. They have such a grace about them. I want one. Was tempted to ask if he fancied swapping for my C5 V6 :)

I spotted this one a few months ago southbound on the A1 whilst travelling to Luton. It was cruising at 85 - 90 for a good 40 miles. :wink:

I almost got run off the road by a S2 silver Xantia today, it came off a roundabout and straight over onto my side of the road, heading towards me. It was a petrol 1.8 - im guessing as it has the look of the 5 spoke wheel trims which only seem to have been available on 1.8 petrol LXs, for some odd reason.
