  11. Visiting my Mum in Kent a couple of weeks ago, I saw a LB sitting in front of a house. Didn't look like it had moved for months/years, the grass was as high as the rust that mascaraed as sills. The were several holes in the drivers door, moss on the inside of some windows, rear seat had old boxes piled on it. I was thinking that if only I lived in the country, I'd see if the owner would swap it for a couple of Beatrix Potter 50p coins I had in my pocket at the time.

    Next day I had to stop at a junction to let it drive past. It lives! I though, but hope it was heading off to a good body shop.

    I finally managed to get a picture today. It’s easier to stop on the path when you’re on your bike!

  16. It’s an Ascort TSV 1300

    An Australian coach built car from the late 50’s

    19 were produced.
    Based on a karmann ghia with a fibreglass body and an Okrassa motor
  17. Thanks:thumbsup:

    Never heard of them before, but it would be a great car to own and drive :)
    Looks a bit like an Apal coupé, build over here in Belgium.

  20. Ahhh.............never heard of them.
    Seems they produced quite a few of those though

    I assume they were fibreglass?
