I'm down at Dad's at the moment, in Somerset. Dad's bungalow is near a railway line.

A couple of hours ago I received a text from Kev (Red Dwarfers) asking if by any chance a certain dark blue Xantia he'd spotted from the window of a train he was travelling on happened to be mine.

Indeed, yes it was mine and he's spotted it from a 100mph train. I believe he was on a Xantia delivery run(n) :wink:

All I can say Kev is you have very keen eyes :)
Drop in on the way back, Jim, and take a look at the new estate...!

Its been a while since I saw a Honda NSX!

French cars seem to be thin on the ground arond here, not seen very many recently. I did see a S1 Xantia estate with ladders on its roof and a very tidy petrol L reg Xantia, might have been a 1.6 or 1.8.

Apart from that, nothing of interest, boring!

Three Xantias in the past two days. Tatty grey estate, passed to quickly to get the spec. blue 'R' reg saloon, 1.9TD SX and in Durham yesterday a very brown and shiny unbadged V-reg hatch. Looked immaculate.

I also spotted a DS today, a later twin headlight car in very pale yellow. It passed me on the opposite side of the M1 near Northampton at around 4.00 this evening.

I also saw three S2 Xantias, again on the other side of the same motorway. Two red and im sure a dark blue S2 Activa.

Paul (owner of Old V6) and I spotted a 'foreign' (i.e not known to us) Xantia in the works car park today...

Normally the only two are his and mine although most of this week it's only been his as I've been running around in Robyn's 206 and giving Rattiva a bit of a rest..

It was a Dante's Red 1.8 16v LX S1 with lovely peeling lacquer but otherwise nice and tidy.

Paul is getting a right Xantia spotter now. He identified it as an S1 from a long way off by the dark rear lights and no 'tit' on the roof (rear window washer jet)... :-D
