A last one for Peter aka myolddear. I’ve found it near Portocolom. Maybe a Citroën Traction Avant? What still comes from the exhaust is the fire behind it. Although: The spark plug is sitting for at least 60 years - Champion!
I sold this car in 2008 and always missed it.
Many other things have tried to replace it but nothing ever came close.
Then three weeks ago I saw it again, on Facebook whilst looking at photos of rusty cars. The headline read “old American LTD my fathers got hanging around”
It took much work, tears and a 600 mile round trip but my beautiful baby is back outside my home, and I can tell you I’m personally happier in my heart than I’ve been for a very long time.
It’s rusty and old, but it’s mine and I love it and I will never ever part with it again.
I’ve never had a motorbike of any description on the road before but am now the proud owner of this old Lambretta scooter. It’s an inheritance from my brother who sadly died recently. He lived in Majorca hence the Spanish plates. My plan is to MOT and register it and use it as is.
I came across this while out wandering a byway in the middle of nowhere. I could smell the wood burner lit and half a mile further down the track a scruffy young chap came cycling along toward me with a backpack on. As the truck was the only thing for miles I guessed this was the owner returning. “Good day” I cheerfully boomed as he got close. Not a word was uttered back and instead I was looked at with suspicion and contempt!
It’s a shame in modern society even the hippies have attitudes and are ill mannered. When I was a hippie it was all love and fun and we certainly responded to “squares” who bid us good day.
