Lovely colour and pretty but totally impractical if you have a young baby... Buggy won't fit in the boot without removing wheels and baby hates the dark and claustrophobic interior as seen from the back seat..

I'm posting this on behalf of Autumn who much prefers riding in my Picasso and regularly voices her displeasure at having to travel in her mum's Clio...

Ohh, that's lovely :D You knew I'd like it Mick, given where I naturally gravitate to when in the B & Q paint section...

Peugeot are coming up with some bright colours. This 1973 reg was parked in splendid isolation beyond the fence of the car park.

Amazingly advanced for a 50 year old car! A bit like my R plate Picasso..

Seriously, it gladdens my heart to finally see modern cars being offered in bright, happy colours... I like that shade a lot 8-)

Not exactly a favourite colour of mine, but an unusual one. Don’t think I have seen a Scimitar in this shade.

Last lot on web and sons auction at the weekend guide £3,000 to £5,000

Just watched an excellent video about the TR7 very informative. Plenty for sale at auctions these days mostly under £10k. Produced originally at Speke, then Canley, and finally Solihull. Total sales were around 115,000 over its 6 year production run over one of the most turbulent times in the UK Motor industry, and it was the best selling TR ever. About a third were convertibles which were produced later in the production run with the Canley made cars coming in some interesting new colours, like as the commentator said...this one in a gorgeous Persian Aqua. To add to the interest of the screenshot for me...yes a Gold Lancia Beta Coupe behind the TR7!

Its a damp and windy day throughout much of the UK... enjoyed the vid and found it very informative. Tolerate the sing-song voice in moto-journo style and there is loads of interesting content. Only 15 minutes. Worth a watch

I just gave that a go Neil and found it pretty informative, the voice did get a bit irritating but not enough to put me off. Thanks for finding that!! :-D

You're welcome Mick, thanks. I was looking at a vid from one of the lots at Anglia Car Auctions described as a "rare modified V8 Triumph TR7 Grinnall" and clicked on one the clickbait suggestions at the end of it! Have a peruse of the ACA catalogue for this weekends sale see if anything catches your eye Mick, pretty much confined to barracks today with the weather as it is, any ventures out likely to be met with properly flooded roads.
