Nearly at the end of March now. It will be interesting to see when the SMMT stats come out whether it has been a terrible month for New Car sales or not. Anecdotally over the month I have only seen a handful, and am getting a little concerned......where is the sarcasm emoticon..... about the poor farmers round here :) I mean none of them have invested in an 18 Reg pick up at all.

...and if it is a terrible month for car sales then let’s predict what the SMMT will give as the reason.....

..uncertainties about B....t. No doubt :-D

Seen it loads of times but only looked at the reg today :oops:

I'll add another model to the list. It was a red Mazda, I will call it an MX5 uncertain of whether that is the correct 2018 model number but you know what I mean.

Most distinctive feature....surface rust on the brake discs! Mine were shinier than those ones!

..and number 2, yet again unsure of the exact 2018 model, but undoubtedly a Triumph Bonneville. Chances are it was one of these

Now what retro-style new car can you buy today? ( Morgan, Caterham, Mini at a push, Fiat 500)

My 1st sighting was Friday (normally I'd expect to see one, just walking to the station the 1st day) - well, had seen it (a week?) before, but so startled to see a Tesla in a neighbour's drive, didn't notice the plate.

Mercedes panzerwagen and a Juke - not surprising as there are thousands of them around here, a few miles from the factory.

I spotted two Citroens today. A cream C4 Picasso in the High Wycombe area, and a white (with red highlights) C3 in Aylesbury.
