...and the car in question, I thought it looked like one, but I have engaged in the dark arts of the whatsthisthen to confirm. It was at one time a popular choice for members of my Sunday League league football team, amongst the many near-MOT failures which used to assemble before the match. It looks to be a bog standard one very similar in colour to one on "Simon Cars".

It was a very nice condition 1967 1500cc Automatic, probably restored but not over the top.

I know i've missed the cup but does this count? spotted in the wild getting its lean on at not a brisk pace at all.

Why is the forum inducing a greater lean than there actually is? the photo was taken the right way up, its the right way on my computer and on flicker but not here, just me?

"In the wild" original photography/videoing is the creme de la creme of classic car spotting in my book, even the fuzzy ones!

If that is a Mehari on the road in March/early April in the Uk then that's quite a rare event!

Looks a bit like a TR7 to me...

Can't be though because it's moving under its own power and I see no trail of rust flakes behind it :lol:
