Spotted a beige GTC going north on the A49 through Dorrington towards Shrewsbury on a rainy Tuesday lunchtime yesterday. Reg. was something like Lily?

I met the owner some 20 years ago, his first name I cannot remember, But his surname I'm sure is Fallows, he lives in the Shrewsbury area, the car is 2.9 with A4LD and runs full LPG, he's visited Curborough many times, a very knowledgeable and pleasant man.

Just had a memory surge, LLL5V belongs to Nigel Fallows and I think he has had it for new or soon after, he must be up to 300K miles by now.
