I'd say your memory was on the right line Gibbo but at the wrong station! :-D

While I thought I recognised the gravel before I was incorrect. ( but a reasonable unlikely coincidence none the less)

For a second attempt, I think I have the right gravel, and the right buildings and doors, and I think Gibbo's yoga position is correct just needs a different model :-D

That sounds to me like you have nailed it this time Neil, thereby proving your right to be a member of the club named after the car. I'll leave it another couple of hours before the big reveal!! :-D

My first effort with the incorrectly identified gravel was a Ferrari 308 GT4 as for sale at Anglia Car Auctions, who typically photograph their lots in a gravel lay-by.

Here's one I spotted yesterday - or rather, my bike video did!

A bit rare I believe.... Number plate deliberately obscured else it would be too easy otherwise...

Looks awesome in yellow :cool:

The video soundtrack nicely catches my rather loud and enthusiastic appreciation of this car :D My riding companion then told me her dream car is a Daimler Dart. What a girl!
