Bright yellow Goggomobil berline spotted. Not sure of exactly what variant, had side windows behind the doors and a fairly upright rear screen.

I spotted a nice grey 203 Peugeot today, nice and straight and original. I'd post a pic but can't work out any way to do it from my computer.

I spotted something grey/silver and French today, nice dint in the rear quarter, and alongside the front wing. The epitome of anonymity...unless you are a fan of course :)

Something like this,

Spotted an A series 1931 ford truck today parked next to a H van but that was cheating as it was in our Hove depots workshop, however a genuine spot was a white DS heading eastbound on the A27 this afternoon as I was going home westbound, looked used.

On the trip to Somerset and back yesterday I spotted a nice red AX (an early one) and a lovely red V6 Activa!

Well probably way off the mark but this 1931 Ford Truck is a nice bright colour!

Not sure if this counts as a Classic Car, but it probably counts as a Classic Car Moment!

I was heading to a call this morning in Poole, travelling along the A27 (near to Rufus Stone, on the uphill section with a gentle right turn), overtaking another car when the driver suddenly slowed down. A moment later I saw why. There was a Vauxhall Corsa (metallic lime green), being driven by a large black lady, in the outside lane (OK, it happens). What was unusual was that it was coming towards me! Well, my new company van has VERY good brakes. One three point turn later (in a dual carriageway!) we were all going the right way.

....beautiful weather in Northumberland today, plenty of open-toppage going on, and a procession of MG's including the subtle bulge of a red MGC having a day out, alongside the usualsunday cyclists. But absolutely tremendous, totally unexpected spot of the day, and no stranger to the I-Spy Citroen H-Vans thread |I give you......

The Crema Caravan......crème brulees burnt to order :!: a genuine "On the Road" spot. motoring under its own steam.....Ponteland Northumberland. Normally resident in Edinburgh.

Two genuine spots today.

First a P1800 in pale metallic blue with flapper whitewalls and predictable "ST-1800" or similar plates.

Then an Alfa 164 of the standard issue, FWD V6 variant, in a medium metallic blue. I desperately wished to be alongside it in my almost matching Peugeot 605.
