I know Cullercoats, dropped by there in the course of a visit to Tynemouth and/or the nearby Crown Carvery in the past, nice spot.

Saw this in the course of getting some dinner yesterday. Nothing unusual about a Moggy, but this unrestored and rather knackered example (the extent of the rust isn't obvious in the pic) charmed me; not least because of the "Dedicated to my Mother and Father" script beneath the passenger window.

Clearly someone loves it, good luck for the next MOT !

I know this is cheating - but couldn't resist it: my "Christmas card" from the guy who organises my my more ambitious roadtrips.

Shame they couldn't find a way of distressing the plastic side window fillers.

owner had the van a fortnight from new, been extensively keyed, got fed up so had it wrapped in this! 2 months later, not touched at all!! Vw had a Shock when it went in for first service!!!

Timmo...............that looks like an eminently repeatable event unless the inlaws just get a visit once a year on Boxing Day :-D

Take your camera, act as suspicious as possible, and get us a gallery of FSO pics :-D

May even rival this one......the translation of the article header Samochód marzeń is "Car of Dreams"

Had a wander around the site, spotted this tucked away in the weeds:

About 4 years ago there was another Gold 164, I presume the one now in the undergrowth was the "spares" car.
