Well spotted! It is too!

On the wrong side, surely?

diffwhine

Well true. The point being that it is wrong. I daresay had I pointed that out in Marlborough High Street on Saturday morning, that my wife would finally have given up on me.

Quote from: diffwhine on Aug 20, 2023, 05:33 PMTo be fair an all new Spotted thread could refer to anything. Even a suspect named pudding... I like the idea of keeping it vague. It becomes an "anything of interest" thread.

Don't even tempt me!👿

I got a right bollocking from the boss last time I posted a pic of a line up of Sports.😂

Was it silver with blue lettering by any chance?🤔

I think it might have been. It was a 21 plate.

What would you do with this Land Rover, use it and get it dirty or lock it away in a very safe hiding place?
The biding reached £42,000, a miserly £4,000 short of its reserve :thud I know it was £46,000 because at the end of the auction, that figure appeared with an invitation to make an offer. I resisted the temptation to put one in  ;)

Interesting... I bought one for somebody in 2019. Cost less than half that IIRC! This one is also missing its duvet... That's the arctic lining for the tilt.

Last one I noticed on the internet auction site earlier this year was £7k that is some difference....

 Spotted today on Vancouver Island Canada

 2 Landrover Series 2 club members standing patiently near my 62 dormobile outside a store waiting for me to come back.
We had a very nice chat they are over here on Holidays and I guess they missed their own 1965 short wheel base land rover, I think he said his name was Alex I can not remember his wifes name.

  Its a small world.

Went to look at something interesting... I'm starting a new thread on this.

Took some digging to get to it. Nettles are shoulder high. A long time with machete to get to it.

Technically we didn't find it as again it wasn't lost. We knew it was there, but could have done with a drone to track it down!
