I know its not this, but is it more a race car/kitcar than a chromium 3-wheeler?

Curly Wurlys are fine but how about an appropriate Somerset Brewed Beer. Cottage Brewing from Lovington near Castle Cary do some quirky ales, and there is some evidence that once upon a time they produced a brew known as

For 1930's motor racing enthusiasts there plenty of youtube videos of the silver arrows story. This is part 3 of a six part series "Racing the Silver Arrows" Takes the story up when Mercedes moved from the W25 to the W125

She's beginning to look a little shabby in areas on the body Jim. Not too bad, but not perfect. I suppose that comes with usage.

I wonder how it'd look with a chrome wrap on it? I bet it'd look pretty good as it goes, it'd kind of protect the underneath until I can be arsed to sort it properly, and easily removable.

Hmm..

News to me that there is a car thingy in Chester Le Street. Been to the one at the Metrocentre a couple of times. Daughter took a strong fancy to a Mk. 1 Capri and a Buick :)

The picture is from the good old internet, and was taken in Ripon :) but it's the same vehicle.

It was dark in Chester-le-Street last night, and it was suspicious enough stopping in the middle of the street to have a closer look, without taking a few flash photo's outside someones house!

It certainly looks quite "Concours d'elegance" in the sunny picture from the Ripon Racecourse Classic Car show 2012, but I have to say looks like its still a workhorse as well. There was a sizeable bit of tree in the pick up bit together with relevant toolage when I saw it :)

Bit of tidying up....the pick up is a 1950's Chevrolet, and the dashboard is the Citroen C-Airplay Concept car introduced at the Bologna Motor Show in December 2005.

Driving home tonight under Northumberland's dark skies spotted up ahead this take on the "designer rear lights"

I'll give you a clue its not an Alfa Romeo Guilietta, if it was it would look like this

So any tail light aficionardos out there?
