Taken a while ago but still unusual - immaculate 1950's Corvette in West Wittering:

Cool! And quite a contrast to this 1950s car (below).

Today, as I was driving through Gamlingay, I spotted this.

I thought a P4 pretty unusual and unlikely to be outdoors and up on axle stands.

Imagine my surprise when I realised that a second was just inside the adjacent fence.

I would bet on there being another behind the garage door Wink

 Wink Maybe.

Probably a copy of "Radio On", where a P4 features throughout, in the DVD cabinet too!

The second car I bought was a P4, a wonderful old bus.

Paid £175 for it, and sold it three years later for £75. Should have kept the registration number!

Do you think it might have been worth more than the car, Steve?

It would be probably worth more than the value of the car now Stephen. At the time, I'm not sure whether the option to retain and transfer numbers was possible. I certainly wouldn't have thought to look into it, it just seemed like any other number plate.

I traded the Rover in for a VW Beetle, as I was doing lots of travel to see my then girlfriend, now wife of 50 years. So a good investment :-)

The Rover only gave 18mpg on a run. The Beetle gave twice that amount.

I'm delighted your marriage lasted so much longer than the car!

There used to be lots of these around, not so common now.

Today, a car I have seen around the town previously but not photographed. Quite striking in white with matt black bonnet and boot. It is probably pretty quick.
