Here's another one. Whilst out in the weather earlier this morning, a small selection of classics passed in the opposite direction, out on their autumn run.
So... a simple, what is it ? And this one I do know..... as I looked it up :-D

Close enough ! The Brigand was the more powerful turbocharged variant, the one I passed was a Britannia.... and you don't see many of those either in the air or on the road these days :-D

Found out from Wiki that the rectangular headlights are from a Volkswagen Sirrocco II, and tail lights from a Bedford van!

Something very familiar about that but exactly what evades me. At a guess a Subaru?
Thornton Dale is a lovely place. Must make the effort to visit again some day.
