Grabbing a list together of "watch out areas" please gents

Having been in a somewhat impecunious state for a number of years now, I guess that I'm coming from a different direction!

Red SE6a in Gourock

Nice looking car.................(I lived in Gourock in the fifties - probably between the ages of 2 & 4! I had a blue book of world flags &, from the front room window, I would try to match them to the flags of the ships as they entered the mouth of the Clyde!)

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

That's okay, Jim - I was out in the Peak District with a friend of mine, anyhow - she was driving a little silver Mazda MX3 which I sold cheap to her......it's not the V6 (which must be the smallest production V6 ever...) but it's a brilliant little car for 21yrs. of age - & very rare! Nicely styled...

Benson and Hedges, but yes - it’s that one. I knew it was something to do with smoking I remember reading about that car in Thoroughbred & Classic Car in the late seventies or eighties (I think it was featured on the cover!). owned by a Roger Rowley Esq.
