As much as I hate French cars and Citroen especially (I've owned 3 and all were awful), it's a shame the Lemon branded company's plastic lightweight ethos didn't catch on at the time and instead everything got heavier...

Another Saxo that appears to have reached end-of-life... Many a boy racer will have graced the pedals of these motors, which must now be approaching 'endangered' 😢.

Not a car but a 1982 Honda Melody. It was quite comical because the rider appeared to have a mullet, had a cycle lamp taped to his helmet, and was quite big. It looked like the whole ensemble should be in a circus.

Not quite mine is still going strong 21 years old in September and I have owned it for 20 years this month. Currently on about 46k miles. There is some rust appearing on the sills and the bottom of the doors and the rubber seals to the windows are going lumpy presumably again rust underneath. Hopefully it will keep plodding on until EV come down to a sensible (that is not a premium over IC) price.

Chrysler Crossfire, wish I hadn’t. Not a fan of its stablemate, the SLK either.

Saw a lime green Lotus Europa.

Very brave to drive it on the road at this time of year, I suppose any remaining will either be heavily welded or kept as garage queens.

In the disabled bays as well. What’s it for? Transporting nuclear submarine parts, do they still have subs in Barrow-in-Furness?

There probably aren't many left still running the original chassis now. With a new one properly treated it would be a good all year round car.

Heard it before I saw it; not because it was loud like a yobbo car, but because it sounded so crisp and musical as it swept up behind me. An F reg, metallic grey BMW M635CSi. (y)

Think it was a scaffolders pickup.
You must know the area just off the picture?
No, the disabled bays are marked and above the door to the nail shop is the telephone number for that area. Good call on the scaffolders’ pickup.

Ah, just clocked the phone number on the shop.
Its market street in Ulverston.
I see a black Brera there some mornings.
