Hi LEC'ers, Spotted today at 10.40 Calypso Red SE, J---LBC. Solo male with hood up! (why?) such a glorious sunny day today; travelling towards Hereford by Eardisley on the A4111. I was in the silver ambulance driving towards Llandrindod Wells. Anyone on LEC? Cheers from Sheriff 464.

I have seen this car too, also with roof up, on the A49 at the roundabout by Leominster so it must be a local car

I seem to remember you've seen a J plate Collapso red near Old Radnor when you've been out and about in your ambulance. Possibly the same guy ? Eardisley, Old Radnor, Llandrindod Wells, Leominster. My guess is he lives in the Welsh marches/west Herefordshire area :burnout:

K reg Aqua heading north towards A421 between Bletchley & Buckingham this morning, probably some time around 10.30.
I was in a group of cyclists wearing our club colours of red & black. I was the one who waved & was actually right next to another owner & forum member, paulsmithmk !

We thought you may have been heading to Silverstone for the classics event this weekend?

Red SE J969 *** travelling on the A303 eastbound early evening. Wasn't hanging about but kept getting held up by inconsiderate road users who insisted on using the road at the same time. :D
My wife's just divorced me because I wouldn't open the car door for her!
To be fair I panicked and swam straight for the surface.

Yesterday evening at 6.30 a french white SE. in Belveze very near to where I live. I was waiting in the doctors surgery
when it went past. I chased out and spoke to the guy. When I say spoke, it was an attempt as I lost half my tongue to cancer.
I gave him my card and he said he will ring. My wife can converse with him and translate for me.
His car looked immaculate. It had done 120K kilometers. It shamed me into giving mine a wash and brush up today. (34K miles)

I'll probably see it again if it lives around there now. Think the plate was H868 or something......

It's actually K868......

Think it's somebody who goes touring in it as it has the GB sticker on the back. There was a photo of a silk red one posted on here a short while ago, can't remember which thread it appeared in but he had recently been in France I think. Anybody remember it ?

Ok, not surprised i couldn't find it, it wasn't posted on here, it was on one of the Facebook groups. Don't think hes a membef on here, i'll have to call in and have a chat sometime maybe.......
