e-golf in a spot normally full of leafs and hyundais.

with a leaf in the other bay, the golf driver had to do some manoeuvring to get his car into position to plug in.

why didn't vw put the plug access up front like other EVs ?

Conversion of an ICE I suppose although I think the ID3 is the same.................maybe they are trying to set a new standard?

Spotted a mint, UK plated RHD Lancia Flaminia GT coupe in white heading south on the motorway.

Not sure of the model, a search suggests anywhere from '59 through to '66.


This isn't necessarily the car:

Aston Martin DB11 2018, White with blue.

Trucking along the NW from Pt Chev in the S8, saw it in the middle lane as I peeled across to the fast lane, I thought gotcha and let rip up the rise and under Patiki bridge, but as we went around the next corner I moved to the left (to go off at Tat) and this flash went past and got fifty clear of me and peeled across 3 lanes to beat me up the Tat off ramp in the most smoothest manner possible, like a F1 car without the noise   .....   :P
Beating up parking wardens ain't a crime.

very nice Triumph (probably) TR4 (on wires so less likely TR5) in a good strong yellow, parked in Milford with the top down in light drizzle, mint!

not unlike this:

Always liked that generation of TR.
