By the way, Belfast doesn't always look so disgusting.

Not seen many Xantias at all recently but on Wednesday :shock: I saw 4 not including my own! The theory is that all the Xantias in my area have been bought up by pensioners who drive around during the week :lol:

205s though...by the time I got out of our estate today (only about 1/2 a mile to the main road) I had seen three. Up the town there was a C plater and yesterday up town there was an A plate. Also saw the red N plate 205 breakdown van that i see quite a lot anyway. I've got a photo of the last one knocking about on my phone.

I was following a very tidy BX yesterday evening, the first I have seen on the road in ages. A red E reg, perhaps a TRS. Looks tidy but riding a little hard perhaps. No pictures as I was driving, the BX wasn't hanging about either!

I saw a lovely red C6 in Birmingham International railway station car park along with a nice black Mk3 (?) C5 when I went to pick up Robyn from the toy train that brought her there from Aberystwyth... A pathetic-looking two car DMU packed to bursting point with Students :twisted: :roll: Arriva trains might have engaged brain and thought Aber has 8,000 Uni students. Most will be coming home today so let's make up a big train for them. But no. Too much to hope for... As Robyn said on her FB page.. "Arriva Trains are Rubbish"...

Today in Bridgewater I saw two white Series 1 Xantias, one bouncing like a pogo-stick. The only other Xantia I saw on the whole trip was a nice red Series 2.

Not 'official' spots, but some from visiting the Stondon Motor Museum yesterday. Below are some of the French cars that were there - there's about 400 vehicles in total and well worth a visit. The CCC's East Midlands Group will be organising a get-together there in March next year.

So, Peugeot 104:

CX GTi Turbo (in such a sorry state because staff lost the key and they haven't got around to sorting it! Been there quite a while and looking very sorry for itself...)

I spotted a K-plate BX yesterday, a red one, looked like a TZD and fairly tidy too. That was in Stockton on Portrack Lane.

Today I was out doing some messages and parked next to an early Xantia, an M plate in dark blue without an airbag and with the chevrons on the bonnet. It was a 2.0 petrol with S2 rear lights. I took a pic or two:
