You wouldn`t happen to be back in Malta would you Jim ??. :roll:
my thought too . . . . .
does Malta count in this thread as I'd expect being unable to spend ten minutes on any street without seeing some 'old cars' ??? :w


PS saw the same K plate Range Rover mentioned above, again with mini digger on trailer!! so vehicle being used for what it was 'sort-of' designed for?

Can’t beat a bit of sun off season and between school holidays :D

The Osca, Alton Jag, Iso, Riley and the Delahaye were racing today after the concours on Friday.

Also bumped into David Waterhouse who runs his A series Turner in the Swinging Sixties as well as the occasional hillclimb :D

Oh - and the Delahaye has hand controls as the French owner/driver is in a wheelchair (he was in his similarly equipped 356 last year).
