    That looks like it. Many thanks.
    Bristol Teardrop Special. It does live up to that name.

    I saw one of them yesterday - with a loaded roof rack. Pretty brave (especially given how windy it was here).

    Last night, saw a Ford GT on the B645. You get a lot of interesting metal on that road with it's twisties.

    Yesterday I saw an heavily modded Austin A40 - wide rims, fat tyres, flared arches. Sounds odd but looked pretty cool. On the A40, appropriately enough.

    On the M3 I saw a lovely old Gilbern Invader. Used to love them when I was a kid.

    We went to MB World afterwards and they’ve now have a Brabus lounge next to the entrance which was all closed off.

    In the garage area we caught a glimpse of a Brabus 800 and one of these with a Qatar number plate....

    Unfortunately no photos because the garage door had mirrored glass.

    I saw a Mercedes 1000 SEC Cabrio up near Marble Arch earlier today. It looked in reasonable nick and still looked pretty good with the roof up.

    Followed an immaculate Austin A35 yesterday, it’s funny to be reminded how small cars used to be.
    Quite cute.

    7006425C-D4C9-42CB-AB97-0ABD291FCACB.jpeg Saw it the other day but wasn’t sure which model it is. MOT history gives XJ6 but it doesn't look like XJ at all. After Google research it looks like it is SS100. Beautiful car.

    Was thinking of that possibility. Quite possible hence XJ6 in mot history and first reg in 1982.

    Deffo then. Normally various interior fittings will be the giveaway. Also, if you check out the rear axle you might see inboard discs.
    There is a lovely old Jaguar XK120 in a mechanics shop by our job. Looks stunning with its age related plate until you look inside.....
    A quick Google and a firm called Autotune built them.

    Whilst I haven't actually seen it on the road, you'd struggle to get a lot more weird than this. Was the buyer called Ernie?:dk:

    Saw a very nice Vincent yesterday. Didn't get a photo, but it was in great condition. I'm guessing it had undergone some restoration work, but it was not overdone.
