Is it just me or does that Fiesta look worried?

XM Prestige PRV6 92
Talbot Express Autotrail Chinook 89
Mitsubishi L200 Trojan 14
Xantia Activa 95, sold (missed)

Service Citroen is awesome, it shows me pictures of all the parts i used to be able to buy............

It has tucked itself away a little bit :lol: Funny thing is that he's just over a foot away from the wall behind whereas the XM is a couple of inches, it's completed dwarfed by the XM!

And by the Berlingo :lol:

Fiestas always look a bit anxious to me.... In that situation can you blame it?

A UK Xantia?




I saw a Renault 25 today, a very nice and tidy red one of the later shape. Typically it was not a UK car but French registered. Odd that the second last XM I saw was foreign registered and now the first R25 I have seen in the UK for years is foreign too. Must mean there are very few of each left on UK plates :lol:

It's the Meilenwerk's Tissier.

Pictured here inside the Meilenwerk in Berlin next to their Checker Aerobus.

It's all over the place, virtually at every classic car event in Europe. That thing must rack up miles like there is no tomorrow.

In hindsight I should have parked the other side for more effect...

Driving down the A1(M) yesterday morning I over took a very nice pale yellow DS, an N plate so 1974/75. Very tidy it was, knocking on a bit too, must have been doing a good 75.

I forgot to mention that I saw a foreign silver XM exclusive in Kent a few weeks back. So the most recent and the third most recent XMs I have seen on the roads in the UK were foreign. :lol:

This afternoon on the way to Xac's I followed an Aventime. First I've seen for ages and ages.

The driver must have been a bit lost and trying to find somewhere as the car was being driven very slowly...

The Wind is class. I get nearly as excited when I see one as I do a Vel Satis - can't wait to own one :)
French is best.
