    This picture came up on random photos, and I thought, I recognise that number. It looks like my newly acquired car has led a chequered life, and she was going through a bad patch here judging from her condition, very battered. img_610_1657.jpg y 20170411_133314.jpg

    Hello Mick, I've no idea where this was taken, but my guess is somewhere on the south coast, as my car was first registered in Portsmouth. I think that might be Nic in the picture, the chap I bought it from, and I'm guessing it was taken about 7 years ago.

    Hello Brian, sorry we couldn't chat for longer in Kent.

    A little bit of detective work reveals that the hotel in the top photo appears to be the 'Seaview Hotel' on the Isle of Wight (http://www.seaviewhotel.co.uk/).

    :)

    Hi Mike, yes I think she is enjoying her new life in Cornwall, and a little foray on to French soil in July, for my baby. It was a pity we didn't get to chat more in Kent Jonathan, hope to catch up with you in the not too distant future. Good detective work, by the way, and Eoynteenie, she certainly had seat belts at one time, as the bolts are still there in the boot floor. I've got a set of belts so they will be going in sometime, but theres a few other jobs before then. The biggest being to raise the back end a bit. Regards Brian.
