Spotted a fellow white phase 1 Xantia LX or SX yesterday, parked directly in front of me near work in Burton on Trent, a white Xantia's not a common sight so to see two parked in a line was very unusual! Anyone off here??

Spotted at B&Q a few weeks back. It's an XM and in Northern Ireland, you can guess who has owned it!

... and my personal favourite. A 3.5 V6 Petrol Grand Espace!

It wasn't peeling very well. A bit like the orange that went to the doctor...

Today I spotted a multi-coloured 2cv in Stockton. I think it might be a 2cvGB member as I vaguely rember seeing it. oddly enough it was on the same road where I spotted the last one around here, which was a very nice two tone grey Charleston a good 6 months back.

I spotted a red Avantime today in Stockton, it had very dark side windows, dark enough for me not to be able to see the drive rbut it looked standard apart from that.

Saw this today down at the sea front here in Walmington. No idea what it is, apart from something with lovely chevrons, of course...
