Definitely my picture of the day!

It was a lovely run in very hot weather!

Excellent pic Jim and I like the marketing of the "CITROJIM" brand on the vest. Now dare you to use "Diesel Legs" on one of your next challenges!!!

Good thinking Neil! Next time I get some custom cycling gear I'll do it :)

My diesel legs work well for running too! Here's one more of me just coming up to the Half Marathon finish line :)

You'd not think I'd just run 13 miles at sub-2 hour pace in sweltering heat...

Its my intention to splatter this across a few threads......slightly different picures of the same thing. Obviously I couldn't put it up a a whatsthisthen? Far too much Frenchcarknowledge in the FCF for that :-D .

So a slightly different photo will appear on "Spotted Xantia's and other French Stuff" and seeing as it is a 70's classic it makes it to the "Classics" spotting thread too. But does it make it to "Classics the under £10K what would be nice?" thread.....have to look that up...wouldn't like to stray off-topic!

Sometimes the design house Pininfarina got it wrong (Hyundai Matrix). On other occasions they got it right (in my opinion)

Citroen weren't averse to a bit of "sponsored" street furniture over in France. So if you have any interesting street furniture pics...contributions always welcome!

Followed this on the way to Gloucester today, no idea what it is couldn't get any other view of it but as seen here, my passenger took the photo with some difficulty. on the move and over the pot holes.

The guy, suddenly without signaling, hit the brakes hard and shot off left into a lay-by.

You managed to get the most important bit Gibbo...the registration number.

Plug that in and out comes Dax Rush and being the "make/model" of the kit-car.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DAX_Rush

It could even have Ford Sierra mechanicals lurking underneath the outer shell. At 1993cc it most likely has a Ford Pinto Engine in it. :-D

Don't think they will be making any more DJ Sportscars who made the kits, went into liquidation in 2014

So there is something unusual about this picture, can you spot it

Yep - I used to know the chap that took it ! Also... 24mph - that's a bit of a precise speed limit :) Presumably if your speed drops below or rises above that then something explodes :lol:

Ben Cruachan hillside, atop the underground pumped storage facility?

That speed limit sign says "24"!
Presumably meaning 15mph for the crew of metric engineers...

I am quite confident that you, with the assistance of those "diesel legs" could easily exceed that 24 mph speed limit!
