Sold my A30 (Nellie) not long ago. Still got lots of bits and pieces to sell that I collected along the way, including a brand new visor.

Here's a bit of Nellie. You can see how small the window is, that's if the snake doesn't put you off!

Aha. You sneaky thing Andy, you posted that very informative pic while I was typing this post.  Tongue

You just want to get in it on a sunny day and drive. Looks in very good condition. Lovely.   Cool

Not Waitrose? Surely a classy car like that deserves Waitrose.  Smiley

Cheltenham wasn't as classy as I expected at all. I'd been to the vintage sports car club hill climb at Prescott Hill & was on my way home. I thought there'd be lots of nice Georgian architecture to look at, like Bath, but all I found was a very soulless, dismal town centre.
Saw this on my way out of town.

Depends which part you drive through - I was there a couple of weeks ago heading to a VW show on the racecourse, and I saw some lovely buildings!
