Gosh, lovely :-D Shame it's not yellow but it's easy to see where the styling cues for the Capri came from!

I like that a lot 8-)

Yes, as above but yellow with black detailing. Actually I think they pinched a lot of its style from the American Ford Torino.

Then presuming its a German spot with a picture then the triple points offer has to be honoured....thats 150 so far.

And a Brucie bonus for a two-tone but ordinary or special that is the question. Maybe not the most unusual of two-tone combinations so a definite double but not quite a triple.

All in all 300 points :!:

Wahey !!! :P Time to break open a bottle of celebratory Blue Nun in honour of my German scorecard :-D

Yesterday spotted a dark blue Austin A35 going around the Kingston Roundabout, and today saw a very tidy looking pale green Morris Traveller just pulling out of Halfords/Pets at Home car park as I turned in.

Experimenting with a dashcam app for my phone following another blatant attempt on me by a crash for cash idiot (evaded - Saabs can stop faster than the idiot thought) - if you see a P plate Nissan Primera with no brake lights in MK - give it a wide berth...this means I might have photos of some of these things I see when out and about though in future!

Well this is where you put a wing mirror if you dont want to spoil classic lines by actually putting it on a wing.

Last of the Summer Wine time now, but this is a genuine 20 pointer spotted today, and in the same colour as the picture in I-Spy Classic Cars :!: not yet put away in the garage for the Winter. First registered 4th March 1964, and looking good for 51 years old.

Yes and its doubled up to 40 with the end of season bonus.

... oh and it was parked next to a no-pointer Swedish 18-year-old, but one with quirky enough lines maybe to enter future editions of I-Spy Classic Cars.

Yellow 240 sedan, speaking of quirky spots. And a tidy P6 V8 in that classic Rover green.

Pity it wasn't a rat Addo....just a standard 10 doubled up to 20 for the Volvo

With those huge rectangular lights probably doesn't need the extra lamps at the front.
