    I'm not sure it this has been done before - but I thought it may be fun to do again, even if it's a resurrect.

    Similar to Scott's scrapyard thread, but with the cars/bikes not quite so dead.

    The only rule being that it must be something that you've seen on the road or out and about, and not from car shows/events, or photos from the internet.

    Anything goes, as long as it floats your boat.

    Here's my starter to ten, seen just down the road the other night.

    1973 MGB GT, a proper chrome bumper model:

    Where you can, unless you can paint a decent verbal picture.

    That Volvo estate - there's one around here that I keep meaning to capture. It's the car that made me think of starting this (as you'll see soon, hopefully).

    And the 2002 - fab :thumb:.

    I loved the custard yellow T5R's ... I see that one a fair bit and it is immaculate.

    Does this have to be cars , or can it be other vehicles ?

    I thought this was nice.

    Spotted in my local Co-op car park. Also saw a McLaren and a B-type but didn't get pics.

    I spotted a fiat x19 the other day in yellow, not my cup of tea but not many left with them being a rot box.

    I was filling up with petrol the other day when a Noble took off up the A5. Not given them a second glance before but it sounded quite good for a turbo 6, plenty of boost noise!!!

    Yes, an early Legend coupe or a late 3.5. Much more interesting than a lexus. Incredible value for money, unless you bought new:eek:
