Great stuff, the middle one in particular looks almost like Southern France basking in the sunshine!

Yes I quite agree but there where elements of Holland too, canals and flat super conditions, very pretty scenery only hardly any landmarks, thankfully quite a simple route but definitely an area where a sat nav maybe useful.

The bubbles would have been bigger had you not speed off up the road, almost crooked my neck taking that one out of the side window!

Wish I was there, looks extremely fun!

We couldnt go, too busy in UK, picking up Tony Marshalls Frisky etc, but had a great trip, seeing and meeting some microcar people, and had a ride in the back of Mark Smith's original TG500. I don't ever remember being in a TG500, so this was sort of new to me. Its a giant improvement to the KR200, can't explain how cool it was!

You'll be amazed how much crap we managed to stuff in the Frisky, pics soon...

I love the picture of the "microcar garden", reminds me of old microcar find pictures! I also spot a Nobel currently being restored ;)

Cheeky blighter!!  I did very well staying off the cabbage fields as Lincolnshire is  cabbage fields from horizon to horizon!
There were a few scary moments on those road though, on a run out on the Sunday we were on a road between two canals and there were some horrendous road subsidence dips which you don't see coming and as one of your wheels drops about a foot suddenly it feels like the car is going to be thrown sideways into in the canal., Planty screamed like a girl !!  ::)

What a load of old tosh! You do exaggerate something rotten. I merely gasped at the sight of one foot of weeds between us and the drop into the canal!

No, it has to be Donald Pleasence's younger brother....The Great Escape film was made 40 years ago and EVEN BOB does not look as old as Donald or his older brother would look now if they were still alive!

Well I'll take it as a compliment, at least he was a movie star and played a master forger, quite handy in my line of work!
