^^^ that thing's an abomination in the looks department. Was the chief stylist an adolescent lad?
Not sure where you mean.Thursday afternoon, parked in the layby (where the copers hang out) northbound A19 just north of the A1 junction,
That's the bit there. A168 bit.Not sure where you mean.
The A19 runs from Teesside past Thirsk to York and then Doncaster. Before the Doncaster By Pass was built the A19 met the A1 in the centre of Doncaster but not nowadays. The A19 terminates in Doncaster town centre while the A1(M) is 2 miles to the West on the A630.
If you are referring to the A1 junction49 at Dishford where the Teesside traffic turns off, that road is the A168 which after 8 miles meets the A19 at Thirsk.
My car has been to this garage for an MoT today so I got the back story. It's had one owner from new and was garaged all its life. It's been locked in the garage since the mid-90s. It's a 160j SSS which makes it a bit of a unicorn.How many left says there are ten of these still on the road.
I know Niki Smart , the main designer of the Atom. It has an interesting story as he was part of the team that created it at college but the tutor “ran off with it “ to put it into production and Niki was compensated . He went to the US and worked for Cadillac Design until recently when they explained he was” subject to a manpower reduction program“ or words to that effect. Nice chap who does some great work.On my wander to the village bakery for my morning croissant I was passed by an Arial Atom! Can't think of I've seen one that close before was bigger than I thought it would be. Had a driver and passenger, thought they were single seaters ( maybe it's an option on the number of sears)
I was in Lytham yesterday but been back in Preston all day today. I can hardly believe that - it's not like there's loads of white Spiders about!Been on an outing to Lytham today. Notables were an F100 and some sort of ancient Austin in Preston, and white Spider in Lytham. Lussoman?
Also there were lots of 80s motorbikes with tiny engines buzzing about. At least half of them appeared to be broken.
