There’s more to see in Broadstairs than the annual Dickens Festival…

Car spotting on the sunshine coast…

Ah the Nissan 200SX! Getting rare in any format, let alone in unmolested standard guise. Most of these have been modified for track and drift use, and that’s understandable… Until recently they’ve been a dull, misunderstood, understated Japanese two door coupe… And there’s a lot of cars in that genre that are coming into their own

Who doesn’t like a Morris Minor woody? This 1972 model looked perfect in yellow… And the deckchairs just made the qunitisenntially British scene.

Whilst in Kent we also popped along to the Turner Contemporary Gallery, which featured a display by Grayson Perry, who uses the high-art of ceramics to highlight that the world around us is in fact a bit crap.

Basically, don’t bother, it’s a load of rubbish. We all know the world is a bit crap if you look too closely. Go for a coffee and do some car spotting instead. Try the seafood – it’s fantastic.

Car Spotting #1: Ford Escort RST and BMW 635

We love spotting classic cars whilst we’re out on the road… Any petrolhead would say the same.

Whether it’s old, rare, interesting or unique, it’s always fun to see what’s out and about.

Today’s Classic Car Spotting:

Ford Escort RS Turbo:

Tidy looking Ford Escort RS Turbo, nice to see what appears to be a model that hasn’t been messed with too much. These are getting rare in this condition, and it’s firmly placed on our list of ‘cars we should have bought a few years ago back when they were cheap’.

BMW 635CSI:

Although we love the Ford, it was the BMW that had us scrabbling through eBay when we arrived at the office. Those classic German lines are just wonderful, and to see it being used every day was a real treat.

Always loved the shape of the big BMW Coupe, and seeing this 635csi still in use made us smile
