The Peugeot is over a 100 years old and the Aston is gorgeous the man that owns it bought it in the 70s for no money he also has a collection of cars that are over 100 years old the tr and mk2 are immaculate.it’s always good conversation with the old guys and I feel privileged to know them.

Is that a genuine original Cobra or a later replica?

Hi
It was the first proper car meet at surgeres this morning,it was nice to sit outside the cafe and drink coffee in the sun.
The cafe owner was saying it was his first day of trading this year ,there was lots of cars and people it nearly looked like a normal summer Sunday,my favorite car was this lancia.car meets and track days should come on a regular basis now .
Bon dimanche mark
